Secret Santas bring Christmas cheer to 70 underprivileged Shah Alam students


SHAH ALAM: It was a joyous afternoon full of smiling children and "thank yous" as some 70 underprivileged students from SJK (C) Khe Beng received presents from their 'secret santa' through the Toy Story Charity Project 2.0.

Presents which were donated by Secret Santas in the public were carefully wrapped and decorated with colourful drawings by the Crisis Relief Squad of MCA (CRSM), GoCare and Creagift.

Selangor Wanita MCA chief Tee Hooi Ling, who distributed the gifts, said their intentions were to share joy and make the children feel cared for during this festive season.

"Christmas is a thanksgiving season. We want to spread love and care towards them and that is by giving gifts.

"Toys are not really a necessity especially if they are underprivileged. It's not easy for them to buy toys as it is quite expensive so we want to gift them toys and share the joy with them," she said.

Tee also hoped that with more media coverage, they are able to spread word to the public should they be interested to donate for their third installation next year.

"The message goes both ways. For example, schools in rural areas can also approach us and ask for these donation drives to be held at their schools," she said.

Apart from Christmas presents, Tee also handed out food baskets to the children.

The team will be handing out more gifts at another three locations in Selangor as well as in Pulau Pinang, Kedah, Negri Sembilan and Johor.

The Toy Story Charity Project was introduced last year to bring joy and create a memorable story for needy children.
