Cornell Singapore Cares Day

Those Cornellians in Singapore, this could be a great way for you to give back to our alma mater!

 Cornell Singapore Cares Day—Forest Adventure with Alumni and Friends

Get into the spirit this holiday season by caring and sharing with the less fortunate.Cornell Club Singapore will be sending 50 children from the Association for Persons with Special Needs (APSN)(Katong) to the Forest Adventure at Bedok Reservoir Park ( Very often, youths in special schools lose out on opportunities to go on field-trips because of lesser funds and resource allocation from the government. On the contrary, youths in private and mainstream schools are very privileged with government funds and private funds, hence they develop more worldly-wise characteristics. Cornell Cares hopes to make a difference in the lives of these underprivileged youths by offering them exposure to venues less available to them because of cost and logistics.

This holiday season, open your hearts and your wallets and
1)Sponsor one or many children at the forest adventure and/or
2) Buy tickets for your friends and family and volunteer to buddy a kid out on the course

OR DO BOTH and teach your children the meaning and value of caring and sharing Background Cornell Singapore CaresCornell Singapore Cares is the club's community service and philanthropy outreach arm.
