Christmas Celebrations

In conjunction with the Christmas celebration, staff from Sitamas Environmental Systems Sdn Bhd, a 55% subsidiary of PPB , brought cheer to the senior citizens of Pusat Jagaan Orang Tua Kasih Sayang in Taman Klang Jaya on 10 December 2018. The centre houses about 20 senior citizens, some of whom are disabled. Sitamas treated the residents to KFC fast food and contributed foodstuff and toiletries to the centre.
In another Christmas celebration on 15 December 2018, PPB brought 45 Orang Asli guests from the Temiah tribe from their island homes in Temenggor lake, Perak for an outing to Paradigm Mall, Petaling Jaya. Since 2017, PPB has sponsored the installation of solar panels, mini water dam and saplings in their villages on three islands, as part of PPB’s CSR project to improve the well-being and empower indigenous people.

The outing included breakfast followed by a screening of “Spiderman: Into the Spider-Verse”. After the movie, lunch was served followed by the singing of Christmas carols enjoyed by all.

PPB staff were assigned as ‘Guardian Angels’ for the event, to ensure their guests were comfortable and felt welcome in unfamiliar surroundings. The guests also went shopping with their Guardian Angels, each given a budget to spend.

Cheras LeisureMall’s (CLM) annual community initiative – “Toy Bank, A Gift of Love” once again fulfilled the wishes of over 800 children from 16 children’s homes, as over 5,400 gifts were collected from 24 November to 26 December 2018 for them. Besides great support from the public, CLM’s tenants – ChicKing and UniqTee also contributed 10% and 5% respectively of their gross sales during the campaign period towards the Toy Bank initiative.

About 180 children from the participating homes were invited to the “Toy Bank, A Gift of Love 2018” Presentation Ceremony on 27 December 2018, and were treated to a special screening of the movie, “Mary Poppins Returns” by Golden Screen Cinemas, followed by lunch at ChicKing.
