Get your car washed for charity
Cor Amoris, a student-initiated charity club from St. Joseph’s Private School is organising the ‘Car Wash Fundraiser for Charity’ to be held March 21 and 22 this weekend.
According to its president Germaine Cassandra George, 14, all proceeds will go to the Kuching Austistic Association (KAA) Resource and Education Centre.
“In order for our club to meet its mission to provide a helping hand to the underprivileged community, we rely on the generosity of individuals and businesses for support. Without the assistance of community-minded individuals or businesses, we would not be able to carry out this mission,” Germaine said when interviewed recently.
The carwash will be held at the school compound from 8am to 6pm, while each car will only be charged RM15, inclusive of vacuuming. Refreshments will also be provided for drivers.
The club was established in mid-January 2015 with an aim to help as many people as possible according to the students’ abilities.
Besides the car wash, Cor Amoris’ previous projects include a bake sale during Chinese New Year, as well as a Valentine’s Day photo shoot session which was held at tHe Spring on Feb 7 and 8.
They managed to collect and donate RM4,850 was donated to the Sarawak Children’s Cancer Society (SCCS).
On their next activity, Germaine added that they had planned to visit the Cheshire Home in April to carry out some cleaning there. Besides that, they will also set up a stall selling various items during Perkata and Salvation Army’s Open Day Sale in May and August respectively.
“At the end of the year, we plan on travelling to a village near Chiang Mai, Thailand to visit the refugee camps at the border of Thailand and Myanmar. We will be teaching the local children simple English, clearing land for farming purposes and assisting doctors and dentists from Singapore. Through this event, we hope to get ourselves exposed and assist them in every possible way.
“Thus, we are appealing for your support by making a donation or sponsorship. Your generosity will make a difference in the local community and at the same time allowing students like us to be exposed to a life outside our town. Thank you in advance for your support,” she added.
