FNB KL Chinese New Year Programme
Angpows for the homeless, calling for your contributions!
From Food Not Bombs KL:
Dear good people,
Since the collective decision propelled the existence of Food Not Bombs in Kuala Lumpur eight years ago, we have been consistent with our credo ‚ÄúReuse, Recycle & Reduce‚Äù and in creating space for everyone to participate and contribute in our weekly food serving for the homeless in downtown KL. From serving meals to a dozen, we are now steadily serving up to 120 individuals every Sunday, 6 pm, St. John Church in Jalan Bukit Nenas.
In conjunction of Chinese New Year this year, FNB KL is organising an ‚Äòangpow‚Äô giveaway to the participating homeless. Aside from special dishes and mandarins, we are thinking of gifts, warped nicely in red plastic bags before distributing it on the 10th February‚Äôs food serving.
In doing so, FNB KL is looking at all sort of things, essential and non-essential (example below) according to what the individuals‚Äô wishes to have. This weekend, we will have our volunteers talking to each participating homeless and note down items requested.
Through this chain of message, we hope to collect as many things as possible by 7th February so that we can prepare the angpow in advance. At the moment, we have two collecting points; one in Bangsar Utama (near Mydin Restaurant) and the other is the Lost Generation Arthouse in Seputeh. The collection will be sorted by our volunteers according to the list.
You can make the contribution by contacting persons below at any time. We can also pick up the goods at your premise if you call us. Your presence will be appreciated.
