CPS Outreach during Lent 2021
2 Corinthians 9:6-7
Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
During the season of LENT 2021, the Catholic Prayer Society organised an inaugural Donation-in-Kind (DIK) charity drive in partnership with the Canossaville Children & Community Services located at 1 Sallim Road.
Cannosaville provided the ‘wish-list’ which included stationery items, daily household consumables, food staples and electronic equipment needed to help the children learn in a more comfortable environment. These items would benefit about 280 children across pre-school and primary school ages, as well as the families taking care of these children.
Thanks be to God our Father!
“The initial concerns as to whether we can meet all the desired quota across 26 categories of items, was unfounded. For we must always remember that we are just the instrument in any given situation and GOD will manifest his greatness through us. “ Ms Helen Yeo, CPS Outram
“Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the LORD, and he will repay him for his deed.” – Proverbs 19:17
“In this trying and challenging times for our community, the donations blessed on Canossaville are essential to the comfort and nourishment of our children and their families. Canossaville is now empowered to better serve the daily and learning needs of our children. On behalf of our children and families, we would like to thank the members of the Catholic Prayer Society for blessing us with the donations and serving the needs where is most needed. Thank you and may God bless you and your
families.” Mr Damon Goh, Community Partnerships Manager for Canossaville Children and Community Services
