One Heart, One Community
My warmest wishes to you and your family for the New Year!
I am happy to let you know that we will once again in January be having the Taman Jurong Hong Bao for our Senior Citizens. It is aimed at benefitting most of our residents who are Singaporean and aged 65 and above. In addition, there will be something more for those aged 80 and above. Taman Jurong CCC will provide them with an additional gift, to recognise the contributions of this special group of people to our nation and our community.
We will also be helping children from our lower-income families once again through our annual Taman Jurong School Children’s Assistance Scheme. This is in addition to the special Book Prizes that we give children in our schools in Taman Jurong who have excelled in either their studies, CCAs, leadership or community service. These schemes within our own constituency are also on top of the annual Edusave awards, that will be presented to many students in early January.
I am very glad that our Taman Jurong Citizens’ Consultative Committee has once again received generous donations from individuals and our corporate partners, which make possible these schemes that bring joy in the New Year.
I hope you and your family members could make use of these schemes. Please help to encourage your neighbours who may meet the criteria to apply for the assistance. More information can be found at our Taman Jurong website homepage under events announcement section.
Let’s look forward to a satisfying 2011 for all!
