Kerry Consulting supports ‘Food from the Heart’ charity during Covid-19 pandemic
The global spread of Covid-19 in the past few months has disrupted lives, livelihoods, communities and businesses worldwide.
The virus outbreak has paralysed many with fear and it can be hard to feel positive in the face of a situation which is out of our control. However, what is within our control is the ability to make some effort to help the especially needy.
As a leading search & selection firm in Singapore, we feel that it is important for us to play our part and come together to support the underprivileged during these tough times.
Guided by our family values, we have decided to support a cause of great importance to us and have made a SGD20,000 donation to the charity ‘Food from the Heart’.
Kerry made this contribution in the form of a matching donation. Every dollar given by any of our employees was matched by Kerry, dollar for dollar.
Food from the Heart is a non-profit organisation that provides food to the needy. The charity was founded in 2003 by a Singapore-based Austrian couple named Henry and Christine Laimer. As at the end of 2019, they had over 10,000 volunteers and helped 44,600 deprived people across Singapore.
The money we have donated will go towards providing food to low-income families and those who are struggling as a result of losing their jobs during the pandemic.
The food distribution will be achieved through different distribution programmes including:
- Bread Run
- Community Food Pack
- School Goodie Bag
- Toys from the Heart
- Birthday from the Heart
- Market Place
The pandemic has put many key charity events on hold, including marathons and other sport events. But making cash donations is something that is still within our power.
We would like to say a huge Thank You to all our employees for their contribution.
