WHAT would you do if a stranger suddenly stops you on the street and dedicates a song to you?  

For the month of August, this was what UCSI (University College Sedaya International) Edu-Jays (Educational Deejays), did as part of their programme Street surprises

“On school days, we visited schools in our Edu-Van,” said coordinator Steve Tan. “Now, we want to put a smile on everyone's face by giving them the chance to enjoy performances our music students have put together.” 

As part of their campaign to spread good cheer, the Edu-Jays will be giving away free bottles of mineral water with the UCSI label.  

GOOD TIDINGS:UCSI'seffortsbrought inmuch neededrations for theShelter Home.

These bottles, sponsored by the university college, carry labels with the artist's impression of the state-of-the-art UCSI campus in Taman Connaught.  

“We invite the public to visit us at our new campus,” Tan said. 

  • An e-mail sent to UCSI's staff members brought good tidings when it resulted in donations of 64 bags of rice for five Shelter homes.  

    UCSI's corporate affairs vice-president Chin Peng Kit said that the generosity of the staff and students is something the university college is proud off.  

    “It shows that our people care,” he said.  

    The Edu-Van was used to deliver the rice to the homes. 

    Shelter Home's executive director James Nayagam said that with over 70 children to feed, they need at least 40 bags of rice every month.  

    “We are always grateful for donations of rice, sugar and biscuits from the public,” he said.  

    Organisations wishing to donate can contact Shelter Home at 03-7955 0663.
