STAFF AND STUDENTS JOIN HANDS TO CLEAN PUBLIC BUSES FOR CHARITY

27 January 2007

A group of Ngee Ann Polytechnic students swapped their lecture books for brooms and mops today to help clean buses for charity.

50 students and 20 senior SBS Transit management staff rolled up their sleeves and took to the backbreaking task of cleaning the interior of some 150 SBS Transit single and double deck buses. They swept, mopped, brushed, wiped every inch of the buses, making sure they are spick and span.

In turn, SBS Transit donated a total of $3,000 for the buses that are cleaned. The money raised will go towards helping needy children.

Ms Priscilla Ng, 19, a second year engineering student at Ngee Ann Polytechnic who came up with the idea, said : “We wanted to step out of our comfort zone to help needy children in a novel way for our action learning module ‘Innovation and Enterprise in Action’. We approached SBS Transit about cleaning their buses and are very grateful for their support in helping us to raise $3,000 for such a good cause.”

SBS Transit Executive Director, Mr Ong Boon Leong said :”This is a meaningful partnership with the students which is very much in line with our direction in corporate social responsibility. It is also in our plans for our employees to increasingly be more involved in such community programmes so that together, the company and staff can do much more in partnership in serving the community.”
