Elmich believes in not only promoting sustainability for the built environment, but also for youths who will learn and grow in it.
Together with our business partner, Nature Landscapes, our Executive Chairman Mr Alan Lee donated $30,000 to the Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund during our Christmas Dinner Celebration on the 5th of December. Ms Tan Bee Heong, general manager of The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund, was present at the event to receive the cheque from Elmich.
When asked about the reason behind the donation, Mr Lee explained, “We are in the business of sustainability and being environmentally friendly. And, to be sustainable, we also need to ‘sustain’ the youth.”
The funds will go towards helping schooling children from low-income families by offsetting expenses incurred from school-related expenses. The fund was started in 2000 as a community project initiated by The Straits Times and has since disbursed more than $60m to its beneficiaries, helping over 160,000 children and youths with their education.
We hope that our small donation will go a long way in giving children from low-income families a more comfortable environment to learn and grow in!
