SHOP & DONATE! – A joint collaboration with NTUC FairPrice
In 2018, Bethel Community Services (BCS) has partnered with NTUC FaiPrice for the Shop & Donate! Programme. Shop and Donate is an online giving platform hosted on NTUC FairPrice on its website, whereby charitable organizations may provide their wish list for members of the public to support.
BCS has customized a grocery wish list for the low-income families through choosing the items that are listed on the FairPrice website (https://www.fairprice.com.sg/DonatetoSSOrg#bethelCommunityServices).The Shop and Donate! initiative encourages the community to come together and help the less fortunate through grocery donations.
These basic food necessities will be donated to the low-income families in our community, which will go a long way to help them. Often, these families may not even have the means to buy these groceries to meet their basic needs. A small donation by you of any amount is definitely helpful to them.
Donors may wish to donate items according to what they feel is good to fulfill the wish list we have put up. Through the Shop and Donate! Initiative you can play a part in making a difference to those in need. We would also like to express our appreciation to NTUC FairPrice for giving us and other donors the opportunity to bless these families.
Make a difference today!

Christmas Party with Students from Singapore Polytechnic & a sumptuous lunch buffet by Newell Brands – 21 December 2018
A time of joy and giving, students from Singapore Polytechnic came to conduct Christmas activities with the students from Bethel Student Care Centre (BSCC). As part of a Thanksgiving festivity, the children meticulously made thank you cards for their loved ones, showing appreciation to them. But of course, what is a party without games? Students played their favourites – Duck Duck Goose, Bang! and even Blow Wind Blow. Without the enthusiasm provided by our volunteers, the children would not have enjoyed themselves as much!
Newell Brands sponsored our children with a sumptuous lunch buffet with turkey ham and roasted chicken! Thank you Newell Brands!

National Day Food Bundle Distribution. A collaboration between G & L Surgical and Bethel Community Services.
In celebration of Singapore’s National Day, G&L Surgical team together with the staff of Bethel Community Services and Bethel Assembly had distributed food bundles to 50 low-income families and elderly who resides in rental flats to help improve their physical and emotional lives. It was as much a fulfilling day for all the volunteers.
The purpose of this National Day drive was to collect, pack, prepare and deliver food and necessity items to needy individuals and families with financial difficulties who live in single room flats. Even in today’s society, there are still many families and individuals who need our aid for basic provisions that we often take for granted. It was an absolutely amazing feeling to share in their lives and their stories and be able to experience their sincere gratitude and joy!
Everyone involved, including the children, were thoroughly enriched on this auspicious day for Singapore.
