LCS Arcadia Monthly Projects.
LCS Arcadia is involved in the Vegetables Charity Drive (VCD) project. Please refer to the Updates on VCD dtd 2 Dec 2020 for more information.
Pasar Pagi Project / Hot meal – Every alternate month on 3rd Saturday, we arrange ration package and packet lunch for 50 seniors each from LB Mei Ling and LB Ghim Moh.
The ration package is worth between $15 – $20 consisting of daily essentials, milo, coffee, cereal, oats and etc as requested by the seniors. This project replaced the monthly hot meal & bingo games held monthly for LB Mei Ling. Due to the COVID19, we have improvised to organize food drop with ration package.
The above is LCS Arcadia’s regular projects. Whenever there is a chance to engage the seniors, we would organize on ad hoc events.
Updates on Vegetables Charity Drive.
The weekly food collection and distribution started more than 25 years ago. Today this service project ‘Vegetables Charity Drive (VCD)’ is organized weekly by 10 Lions Clubs.
Every Saturday, VCD collects produce from the warehouses in Buroh Lane, Pandan Loop and Pasir Panjang Wholesales Centre. We then distribute to more than 7,000 beneficiaries represented by the various organizations at Feng Shan Community Block 109 Bedok North Ave 4 carpark.
These beneficiaries represent a wide scope of charity organizations namely; charity homes, food banks, soup kitchens and poor residents in our community.
We ferry the donated produce in two 24 footer trucks and a 14′ lorry from the warehouses and wholesale Centre to the distribution point in Feng Shan.
Our main expenditure is the transport cost and occasionally we do purchase produce due to poor collection which thankfully is not often.
The 10 Lions Clubs involved in VCD are the following:
1 . LCS Amber
2 . LCS Arcadia
3 . LCS Central
4 . LCS Chong Pang
5 . LCS Clarke Quay
6 . LCS Clover
7 . LCS Galaxy
8 . LCS Henderson
