A group of active volunteers in CCIS has started a ground up initiative - Community Matters to promote community service among students. We work with different charities & non-profit groups to bring community projects to students & youths.
Community Matters will be raising funds for Gladiolus Place this year at Orchard Road. Our fund-raising booth - Made with Love will be on site on 16-22 December 2022! Other than giving towards a meaningful cause, the public can engage in hand-crafting some Christmas crafts for their loved ones.
Here’s a note from our partner - Gladiolus Place and how you can support them this season!
Gladiolus Place is a non-profit residential Home for vulnerable teenage Girls who are facing or are at risk of abuse, neglect, delinquency, and wayward behaviours.
Founded in 1998, our mission is to bring healing for their brokenness, renewal to their minds, and restoration to their families and communities as transformed individuals.
We are turning the page onto yet another year to 2023, faithfully treading with the grace and kindness of all who have come alongside our Home in one way or another. Your journeying with us is the assurance that the work we do is not in vain.
Our hearts are filled with gratitude that Gladiolus Place, our Home, gets to be the conduit of your joyful generosity, passed on to our Girls. Your investment, tangible or intangible, is proof that we do not stand alone.
For anyone reading, this might be the first time having heard of our Home and the therapeutic work we do as an intentional act of journeying towards healing and wholeness with our Girls. We invite you to come and cheer us on as we watch them bloom into women of strength and dignity.
