Blood, sweat and chairs: An overview of TR PSEP’s charity activity in 2017

Colleagues from TR PSEP in Malaysia had a busy year in 2017 both in and out of the workplace, with the team taking part in a number of activities and campaigns for charity. From blood donation to furniture donation, TR PSEP employees dug deep and raised both awareness and money for a number of worthy causes throughout the year.
 

Furniture donation, March:

Every year, the PSEP team supports the “Go Green, Recycle for Charity” initiative and on the 21st March 2017, employees donated unwanted office furniture to the Pertubuhan Amal Seri Sinar charity home. A total of 30 items of furniture were donated, from tables to cabinets. The objective of the donation was to give furniture to those who needed it whilst also supporting a sustainable and recycling-led community effort.

The Health Week activities included:

  • Free Health screening and vitamin sales by Lourdes Clinic

Blood donation day, May:

In co-operation with the Tengku Ampuan Rahimah  government hospital, TR PSEP held a blood donation drive at the plant on 5th May 2017. This was the third time the team has tied up with the hospital to organise this event, which aimed to collect blood supplies for the National Blood centre and also raise awareness of the benefits and importance of blood donation.

The blood drive attracted 55 people and the hospital team managed to collect 39 blood donations, almost double the amount collected the previous year.

3R (Reduce, Re-use, Recycle), throughout 2017:

TR PSEP teamed up with XPM Welfare Society Malaysia, a registered Non Government Organization as approved and recognised by the National Social Welfare Department in 2017 to encourage employees to donate recyclable items. The welfare society then sold off the items and donated funds to local welfare homes.

In total, 4 drums of recyclable items were collected and donated, including glass bottles, plastic bottles, paper, books and magazines.
