Kuala Lumpur – The COVID-19 pandemic situation continues to disrupt the daily lives of the local community. With a commitment to help those in need, Pengurusan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Air Selangor) today continued its effort through Box of Hope by distributing essential food items donated by the public to 100 families from Projek Perumahan Rakyat (PPR) Gombak Setia.
Through this special collaboration between Air Selangor, Village Grocer, and Yayasan Food Bank Malaysia, the total contribution distributed to the B40 group in need this year has benefited 180 families and the Box of Hope assistance has helped a total of 500 families from the B40 group who need essential food items especially in getting their daily food source as they go about their daily lives since its launch on 30 June 2020.
The Box of Hope programme was launched with the aim to help the B40 community in need by providing essential food items during the COVID-19 pandemic. People can donate essential food items such as flour, rice, canned food, milk, and cooking oil at the Box of Hope located in five Village Grocer locations such as Tamarind Square Cyberjaya, MyTown Cheras, 1 Mont Kiara, I-City Mall Shah Alam, and Melawati Mall.
Additionally, those who wish to help can make contributions via the CIMB Bank Berhad’s account 80-0798511-8 and include the ‘Box of Hope’ Initiative Assistance as a remark. Through this bank account platform, the public can make donations without having to go to Village Grocer branches or any of Air Selangor’s regional offices physically.
Air Selangor will purchase the essential food items from your donation and donate them to the B40 group in need. With this bank account, Air Selangor hope that more individuals and organisations will come together to provide assistance and contributions. Air Selangor also hope that this initiative will continue to receive attention and support from the public to donate.
