ALAMANDA BRINGS CHRISTMAS JOY TO THE LESS PRIVILEGED CHILDREN
Children from Pertubuhan Kebajikan Yesuvin Mahligai, Selangor, received holiday cheer from Alamanda Shopping Centre (Alamanda) in the spirit of the season. A group of 31 youngsters between the ages of 3 and 18 were invited to a warm-hearted celebration in Alamanda on December 14, 2022. When they arrived, the management staff of Alamanda met them.
The little ones were taken for mini train rides in the mall before being ushered to the Centre Court to witness a magic show performance. They were then presented with Christmas gifts by the General Manager of Alamanda, Pang Sook Fong before being treated to a sumptuous Christmas lunch. The event was made more meaningful with Alamanda’s retail partners contributing Christmas goodies to the children.
Andrew Brien, Executive Director of Suria KLCC Sdn Bhd said, “As the season of giving is upon us, we should always remember that many out there are less privileged. In view of this and as part of the mall’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) effort, we are honoured to host these children and we are hopeful that this event will be a memorable one for them.”
Brien added, “But the real value is not about the gift, but in the intention behind it – that it is given with great affection, just like today.”
The caretaker of Pertubuhan Kebajikan Yesuvin Mahligai Selangor, Ms Viviliyah Rajan said, “This Christmas treat and joy by Alamanda definitely means a lot to us especially the children. The celebration is not just about receiving gifts and goodies, but also the care and attention these children received at this time of the year.
