PUTRAJAYA, 12 December 2018 – IOI Group together with its foundation, Yayasan Tan Sri Lee Shin Cheng (Yayasan TSLSC), and IOI City Mall (ICM) celebrated this Christmas by organising a charity campaign titled ‘Grant A Wish This Christmas 2018’ as part of their corporate social responsibility initiative.
This campaign, which ran from 1 November to 7 December 2018, was opened to all IOI Group employees as well as ICM’s patrons. The campaign fulfilled the wishes of 161 underprivileged children, aged between three and 19 years old, from four selected homes, namely Little Yellow Flower, Shepherd’s Centre Foundation Semenyih, Stepping Stones Living Centre and Pertubuhan Kebajikan Thangam Illam.
On 12 December 2018, the children received their Christmas gifts in addition to goodie bags consisting of school supplies, toiletries and food items, courtesy of Yayasan TSLSC at a gift presentation ceremony held at ICM. Executive Director Yayasan TSLSC Datin Joanne Wong and ICM General Manager Mr Chris Chong presented the Christmas gifts and goodie bags to the four homes.
At the presentation ceremony, special performances included a spectacular magic show followed by a Christmas carol by the children from Shepherd’s Centre Foundation.
All the children enjoyed their time at the adventurous District 21, a first-of-its-kind 70,000 sq. ft. indoor adventure theme park located in the mall where the children got to climb, jump, slide and fly while exploring every game and challenge laid out.
The children were also be treated to lunch by Texas Chicken and a complimentary screening of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald at Golden Screen Cinemas.
Upon departure, they were presented with goodies by Hogan Bakery. The event was a success and everyone left with huge smiles on their faces.
It was a one-of-a-kind celebration! Many thanks to all who have made this event a success.
