GSC LENTEN DONATION PROGRAM 2021

Tuesday : 09 March 2021

An idea was mooted by our Good Shepherd Church (GSC) Core Team Leader of our GSC EVERGREENS ( Seniors) sub Ministry, Mr Desmond Nathan, to embark on a small Donation Drive during this Lenten Season. Thus, was born the GSC EVERGREENS LENTEN DONATION PROGRAM 2021.

An ONLINE /VIRTUAL donation drive (in view of the present Pandemic situation) was initiated within the GSC Evergreens community between 07-16th Feb 2021. Immediately, cash donations began to pour in, including a very generous donation of RM1000 from just one donor who humbly wished to remain anonymous.

Initially, the donation drive was to utilise the monies received to buy provisions and sundries for a nearby orphanage.

However, with the total received exceeding our expectations, it was decided to spread the distribution to more than one charity. With the Blessings of our Parish Priest Rev. Fr Chistopher W. Soosaipillai, groceries and sundries were purchased and distributed to three main recipients as follows :-

  1. PERTUBUHAN KEBAJIKAN ANAK YATIM MARY, SETAPAK ( also known as Sanctuary Care Centre-

Distribution was carried out on Sunday 21st Feb 2021.)

  1. MYANMAR MIGRANTS SCHOOL, SETAPAK (Distribution was carried out on Sunday 28th Feb 2021)
  2. NACSCOM RUMAH WARGA EMAS, SETAPAK (Distribution was carried out on Sunday 07th mar 2021)

After the above donations were completed, there was still a balance of a few hundred rinngit. It was decided that this balance of cash be donated to our own GSC PIHD Ministry to add on to their funds and further channeled to other projects for the needy under the purview of the PIHD.

We say a BIG THANK YOU to all our generous GSC EVERGREENS for their support in making this little LENTEN DONATION PROGRAM 2021 a success and we hope that our contributions have helped to spread some cheer and goodwill to those whom we contributed to.

WE PRAY FOR ALL THE POOR AND NEEDY OF THIS WORLD.

GOD BLESS.
