ACCA Charity Drive

ACCA member Candy contacted us inviting us to do some voluntary work just recently.
Event : Charity Drive
Organizer : ACCA
Date : 10.02.2006
Time : 10am - 5pm
Venue : Wisma Denmark Parking Lot
Objective : To Help The Johor Flood Victims
Yesterday, Philip, Shern Yang, and myself arrived at the Dang Wangi LRT station at around 3pm. We went straight to the location of the charity drive. It was easy to spot as there were tents/canopies set up there.
And so, we made our way over and introduced ourselves. We were brought up to the 27th floor of the Wisma Denmark building to the ACCA office in search of Candy/Hannah.
They were both not there, so we went back down to the site. We were given mandarin oranges and bottles of water by the other ACCA members who were present. One of them helped to take this photo of us.

L-R : Ping Chien, Shern Yang, Philip Yong.
As there wasn't much that we could do at the time, we just chilled. I went around taking some photos.

After loading every single box into the lorry, we lingered around the area for a while. ACCA member Seri presented each of us with an ACCA 2007 Planner as a token of appreciation. We then said goodbye to the ACCA members and made our way back home via LRT.
At the end of everyday, rays of sunshine and hope shines on the land below.

Hey, cool blog. And ping chien forgot to put in the part where philip was half an hour late.. Haha..
Anyways, the Charity Drive was quite a successful one, because alot of colleges donated alot of stuff to help the Johor flood victims. =)
Lastly, its great to see that many youngsters are still volunteering to do charity work..
