The Store Group's 'Weaving A New Future' donation to MyKasih
On 31st May 2018, The Store Group concluded a public coinbox donation campaign, "Weaving A New Future" which ran from 1 October 2017 to 30 March 2018 in all its 75 outlets nationwide. The six-month campaign raised RM 108,000 which was donated to MyKasih Foundation to support two Orang Asli community learning centres in Gerik, Perak, and Orang Asli families in Sungai Siput and Gerik through the ‘Love My Neighbourhood’ food aid programme. Our Chairman and Co-Founder, Tan Sri Dr Ngau Boon Keat, said “We would like to express our deepest appreciation to The Store Group for selecting MyKasih Foundation once again as the sole beneficiary of The Store Group’s charity campaign”. Last year, The Store Group ran the same coinbox campaign between the months of April and September, which raised RM 106,000. The sum was channelled to MyKasih to support 110 families in Sungai Siput and Gerik with food aid. Under the one-year food aid programme, beneficiaries receive a monthly allowance of RM 80 through their MyKad account, which can be spent on approved essential food items at participating retail outlets.
