2000 - 4: A Decade of Hope
Operation Redshirt was formed in 2000 by a group of friends who wanted to reach out directly to the impoverished elderly in Singapore during the festive Chinese New Year period.
By pooling money together, they bought essential items (oil, rice, sugar etc) to make CNY goodies bags as well as "Ang Paos" which they distributed to over one hundred individuals.
Year on year, the spirit and efforts of Operation Redshirt have increased in the recipients, sponsors, volunteers and sponsorships. Further, the essence of Operation Redshirt continues to stand strong... 100% of all funds sponsored go directly to the CNY goodies bag and Ang Paos. Any related expenses are borne by the volunteers themselves.
For 2014 Operation Redshirt, we will be reaching out to over 1400 old folks in more than 15 locations throughout Singapore.
Distribution dates: 11 & 12 Jan 2014 (Sat & Sun)
Meeting Time : 8:00am for both days
Meeting Point : Maris Stella Kindergarten
