Cheras Leisure Mall - Toy Bank 2015, A Gift Of Love Community Programme

Another year have passed, and Cheras LeisureMall's Toy Bank, A Gift of Love is back. They made Christmas dreams come true for over 400 children from 13 children’s homes and charity houses through the mall’s annual community programme - Toy Bank, A Gift of Love. I was at the gift presentation ceremony last week, the 29th December 2015, and it was delightful, to say the least.

A giant Toy Bank has been set up at the Ground Floor Concourse since 4 December 2015 to collect gifts of love for the children from the participating children’s homes and charity houses. Colourful wish cards bearing three of the children’s Christmas wishes were displayed at the wishing trees around the giant Toy Bank. To be part of this meaningful cause, willing parties can first pick a card from the wishing tree, select a toy or gift from child’s wish list and then deposit the gift together with the wish card at the Toy Bank.

Ms Eva Hew, Assistant General Manager, Marketing and Promotion (Retail), Property Division, PPB Group Berhad said, “Toy Bank, A Gift of Love programme is a community initiative to connect people to areas of need in society. Since its inception in 1999, Toy Bank, A Gift of Love programme has become an anticipated event for the shoppers to express their care and concern for the underprivileged children.”

 “Thanks to the shoppers, well-wishes and members of the public for their generous support towards the Toy Bank programme, we have managed to collect around 2,700 gifts throughout the programme period from 4-27 December 2015. Apart from the gifts prepared according to the children’s wish lists, shoppers also donated household necessity items such as rice, cooking oil, toiletries and more,” Eva Hew added.

165 children from the participating children’s homes were invited to have a memorable Christmas celebration at Cheras LeisureMall and receive the gifts sent by anonymous true love at the gift presentation ceremony on the fifth day of Christmas. I must say, it was a delight watching their happy faces, and participating in the witnessing of all the performances prepared.

  1. I wonder if they give away those kids for adoption. Some parents may give them very happy and loving homes. Many overseas do that, get kids from places like China, Vietnam. Angeline Jolie has a few.
