DIRIWAN 88 recently donated a total of RM9,866.17 to two non-profit organizations – the Malaysian Red Crescent Society (MRCS) and Special Olympics Sabah (SOS).
Each one received an equal share of the amount of RM4,933.08. The cheques for the contributions were presented to the two organizations on 26 September, by Diriwan 88’s Human Resource Manager, Donny Kong during a brief presentation held at its Headquarters in Karamunsing Complex, Kota Kinabalu.
Receiving the cheques on behalf were, Datuk William J Chai, National Vice Chairman of MRCS cum Chairman for its Sabah branch, while SOS was received by its Advisor Simon Koh.
The said amount being monies collected by Diriwan 88 through the donation boxes placed at all its 40 outlets throughout the state, for the past one year.
Kong disclosed that as of to date, the total amount collected since the inception of this charity program in 2002, in aid of the needy and special groups of people, has exceeded RM100, 000.00.
He noted that although the amount donated to the two organizations was not big, it would at least help them to continue with their annual activities and programs in aid of the underprivileged and needy in the state.
“On behalf of the company and the Non-Governmental Organizations, I take this opportunity to sincerely thank all the donors for their generous contribution. We hope this will make a difference for these charitable organizations and the underprivileged,” he said.
