Touch the Hearts of the Elderly Seniors (T.H.E.S) is a regular volunteering programme that provides opportunities for volunteers to befriend elderly who live in one-room rental flats in Geylang Bahru. It is a joint project between NUS Students’ Community Service Club (CSC) and TOUCH Community Services (TCS).
WHAT WE DO
We conduct visits to the seniors’ homes every Saturday.
- Chit-chat sessions
- Light grocery shopping and running errands
- Simple household chores
- Celebrating special occasions (birthdays and festive occasions)
Apart from regular visits, we also have mini celebrations twice an academic year, where we plan activities for them to celebrate festive occasion together and brighten their day 🙂
Examples of celebrations we have organised:
- Lunar New Year
- National Day
- Mid-Autumn Festival
On top of that, we have major outings, twice an academic year, for some fun under the sun.
COME JOIN US
We welcome anyone interested in volunteering with the elderly!
