FREE COFFEE SUNDAY (FCS) is more than a food distribution project. Besides sharing a meal with the migrant community, its goal is to spread the spirit of doing good and, inspiring others to contribute to the less fortunate. All this starts with friendship.
Pet Lovers Foundation (PLF) has been sponsoring this event since 2016 and FCS Christmas 2019 had the largest turnout by far. Over 60 volunteers and many attending as families, also brought friends in tow to experience the sharing of Christmas joy and fellowship.
Through the combined generosity of the FCS and the PLF community, some 550 goodie bags filled with grocery items were distributed to the Indian migrants at the Church of Our Lady of Lourdes. Many of those who gather at the church grounds weekly are from the construction and services industry. Those present also enjoyed a delicious spread of Nasi Briyani. Migrants with families and children were further treated to free pre-loved toys, shoes, and books. Volunteers also contributed Christmas cakes, apples, and chocolates. Added to all that was shared that evening, was the precious gift of themselves!
