Central CDC launches largest volunteer recruitment drive to help seniors

The Central Singapore Community Development Council (CDC) launched its largest volunteer recruitment drive call Silver Alliance for Seniors, with a call for 10,000 volunteers to carry out a series of outreach programmes aimed at improving the lives of seniors.

The programmes, which were first launched about four years ago, range from home refurbishment works - like painting, cleaning and fumigation - to volunteers befriending seniors living in the area and taking them to local areas of interest. Last year, about 9,000 volunteers took part.
