Seagate raises S$630k for Singapore charities

The S$630,000 will help the underprivileged communities in Singapore, including children in need and the elderly.

“AWWA Community Home for Senior Citizens provides accommodation for elderly Singaporeans who are on public assistance or have no family or means of financial support. Seagate’s generous donation will go a long way in helping us support our residents through counseling services and regular activities to maintain their physical and mental health,” said Keith Lee, Director of Elderly Services, AWWA.

Seagate Technology raised the money as part of a charity drive organised to commemorate the company’s 30th anniversary in Singapore.

“The amount raised this year is the highest in Seagate Singapore’s history of community involvement, a result which has only been possible with the close collaboration and excellent teamwork across Seagate,” said Steve Luczo, Chairman, President and CEO of Seagate Technology.

As a mark to give back to the community that Seagate has been operating in, Seagate employees participated in a variety of activities organized by the company at the Asian Women’s Welfare Association (AWWA) Community Home for Senior Citizens and the Children’s Society Student Care Centre (Henderson).

They provided an afternoon of entertainment for the elderly residents through song and games and and conducted a balloon workshop for the children.

Seagate employees also organized a charity bazaar at Seagate’s Ang Mo Kio office cafeteria for an afternoon, where they ran game stalls to raise funds for the two charities.

“We are extremely thankful to Seagate for their generosity. Most of the children from Children’s Society Student Care Centre (Henderson) come from low income families and the funds raised will be a great help in providing a conducive environment to enhance the development of these needy children, who are the future of Singapore,” said Chia Boon Khiang, Director of Funding, Singapore Children’s Society.
