PAGE UPDATED:  3 February 2013

We have asked each of our local partners to identify and write out a priority list of the things they need. From the donations you drop off, we sort and pack them according to the needs of communities we partner.  We try to update the needs of our various local partners every couple of months. At the bottom of this page, we have listed the most recent needs of our local partners and the approximate amount that they need.

Find out where you can drop-off your items* in Singapore HERE and be sure to check back on our FACEBOOK PAGE regularly for public donation-drives!

*Please ensure all items are placed in a clearly marked bag/box with the words ‘Blessings in a Bag’.  Simply attach a label, leave us a note or have a tag with our name on it so that the items will be passed over to us safely.

Though we encourage recycling and the ‘going green’ movement, we do ask that you think twice before donating as some of the items we have received are either stained, torn, dirty – you name it! So before you drop off your donations, please ask yourself the following question: “Would I give this to my own child? Would I give this to my own little sister or brother?”  If the answer is NO, then please don’t pass them onto us :)

Here are the list of items we need round the year. Please check if we require the items to be new.
