Recently from 13-29 March, the SIS Mother’s Choice YLC team held an In-Kind Donation Drive for child care items needed at the Mother’s Choice child care homes. At Mother’s Choice, we serve 3 main communities, and children – especially the ones at our child care homes – are one of these communities.
Although we met some challenges at first, such as the lack of recognition from the student body and thus the lack of donations, we quickly resolved them by sending out more whole-school emails, putting up more posters around the school, as well as sending out flyers to students and teachers alike. The effort that we made was more than worth it, and we really appreciate and are deeply proud of the fact that we managed to receive so many items despite the initial challenges, with wet wipes being the most donated item out of the list (101 packs of wet wipes in total were donated). We hope to hold more events like this in the future that will receive just as much enthusiasm, so that the purpose and work of Mother’s Choice can be more well-known within the community.
