In partnership with SG Cares Giving Week and co-organised with Orchard Road Business Association, we invite the community to participate in Christmas on A Great Street Community Chest Light-Up Ceremony 2023. This celebration promises to be a showcase of holiday splendour, emblematic of our commitment to fostering a spirit of goodwill and communal unity. Immerse yourself in the holiday spirit as Orchard Road lights up with a mesmerising display of Christmas lights on 16 November.
In the spirit of year-end giving, you can make a difference in the lives of those in need, as 100% of your donations will support more than 200 critical social service programs. These programs empower children with special needs and youth-at-risk, support adults with disabilities, assist persons with mental health conditions, and provide aid to seniors and families in need.
