Lend a hand – Foodbank project

We are all aware of the devastating impact and the dire situation arising from the Coronavirus pandemic.  The hardest hit are the B40 population, people in the informal economy and especially migrant workers with zero social & safety nets.

With this in mind On Saturday 3 July a discussion was held on how we could help as a chapter. The idea of setting up a “food bank” was proposed and approved by PJ Animales

A committee was formed immediately and in the six weeks  since the idea was seeded we have made enormous progress in the roll out of this project. 

Thanks largely to overwhelming contributions & support from our Animales family and also brother chapters PJ Hazards, Hash Hobblers and our Singaporean friends at Seletar HHH, Kampong Hash and Soccer Team SCC.  Our thanks and appreciation too to our corporate supporters and partners in this project Cocoland Bhd, MS Logistics, Big Rajah Caterers, Moghul Mahal Restaurant, Randy Andy and all other well wishers. 

We set a fund raising target of RM 45,000.00 and up to now we have raised RM40,149.00 Thus we are almost there with another RM 5,000.00 to go.  So far we have spent RM 26,204.30   This amount was spent In the distribution as follows;
