Goodie bags for the elderly and single mums

Residents Association (RA) and Management Corporation (MC) of Menara Yayasan flats in Kelawei Road, Penang, brought cheers to their neighbours recently including some 100 senior citizens and single mothers staying nearby.

Each of them received a goodie bag consisting of basic necessities such as rice, health beverage like milo and condensed milk during a presentation ceremony held in conjunction with the MC’s fourth annual general meeting.

Shahul Hameed Mohd Ishak, who is chairman for both the RA and MC, said the goodie bags were sponsored by both committee members of RA and MC.

“It was just a small token of appreciation from us in giving back to the community. I am grate-ful that all the committee mem- bers chipped in generously to the donation which amounted to near- ly RM10,000,” he said at the ce-remony.

On hand to give away the goodie bags were Pulau Tikus assemblyman Koay Teng Hai and Penang Municipal councillor Ng Chor Huat representing Bukit Bendera MP Liew Chin Tong.

Also present was state Domestic Trade, Consumer Affairs and Religious Affairs committee chairman Abdul Malik Abul Kassim who spoke briefly to the residents on various issues in the state.

Shahul Hameed said more than 400 residents were living in the flats consisting of 90 units.

The MC was formed three years ago to manage the building.
