ItsRainingRaincoats Collecting Unopened & Unexpired CNY Snacks For Migrant Workers

Snacks like pineapple tarts and hae bee hiam rolls are arguably the things we look forward to every Chinese New Year (CNY).

If you happen to have an abundance of CNY snacks and are struggling to finish them, this initiative lets you do good while clearing the countless bottles of kuehs lying around the house.

From now till 28 Feb, welfare group ItsRainingRaincoats will be accepting CNY snacks which they’ll be donating to migrant workers in Singapore.

Great way to ‘clear’ your CNY snacks & raise workers’ morale

If you happen to have extra CNY snacks lying around the house and don’t want them to go to waste, consider donating them to our migrant workers.

Not only will you be saving perfectly good food, but your donations might help raise the morale of the migrant workers here who may have been away from their families for a very long time.
