PUTRAJAYA, 1 December 2021 – A total of 14 charity homes and organisations were treated to an early Christmas gift when Bargain Basement, an initiative by IOI Group’s foundation, Yayasan Tan Sri Lee Shin Cheng (Yayasan TSLSC), gave out RM260,000 of its net proceeds in a presentation ceremony at IOI City Mall.

Yayasan TSLSC Executive Director and Bargain Basement founder Datin Joanne Wong spread the giving spirit of Christmas together with her Bargain Basement champions as they presented cheques to the welfare organisations. The proceeds will enable these organisations to purchase daily neccessities, help needy students to buy stationery and school supplies, assist the old and the ill and those with special needs and the disabled with medical expenses as well as help abandoned animals.

The 14 beneficiaries are Pusat Jagaan dan Rawatan Orang Tua Al-Ikhlas, Rumah Orang Tua Chok Lam, Pertubuhan Kebajikan Kristian Aman, Shelter Home for Children, Malayasia Lotus Charity Care Centre Association, PAWS Animal Welfare Society, Ti-Ratana Welfare Society Malaysia, Dignity for Children Foundation, Pusat Jagaan Sejati, Star Foundation, SJK (C) Chen Moh, Alzheimer’s Disease Foundation Malaysia, Sin Chew Foundation and Dual Blessing Bhd.

Since its inception in 2016, Bargain Basement has given out over RM280,000 to 20 various homes. An innovative social enterprise, Bargain Basement encourages the public to donate pre-loved or unused items. From clothing to household items, the items are then resold at low prices. All net proceeds will be channelled to different charities annually. Bargain Basement’s second outlet is located at IOI Mall Puchong while its third outlet is located at Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (UTAR) in Perak through a collaboration with the UTAR students.
