Partnership with Community Chest

RWS is one of the forerunners in heeding the call from Community Chest for sustained giving so that social service programmes can be better planned with long-term outcomes. RWS has inked a five-year pledge from 2014 to 2018, with S$5 million cash donations and in-kind support to Community Chest.

On 20 January 2018, Universal Studios Singapore played host to the third edition of Community Chest Charity in the Park graced by Guest-of-Honour Mr Chan Chun Sing, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office where over 4,000 donors, volunteers, beneficiaries and their families enjoyed a night of rides, entertainment and food in the theme park.

The theme – Empower Lives Through Inclusiveness – was a celebration of strengths and a showcase of inclusiveness. Teams comprising persons with and without disabilities took part in inclusive games and experiential activities to allow them to have a better understanding of the challenges faced by beneficiaries. Held in support of SG Cares, a national movement to promote volunteerism, the event raised about S$2.3 million for 80 social service organisations supported by Community Chest.
