Event Details

Join others from our Cornell community here in Singapore for our annual Cornell Cares volunteer event for up to twenty volunteers (family friendly with all ages welcome!).

A secular, non-affiliated charity, Willing Hearts is wholly run by volunteers, apart from a handful of staff. It operates a soup kitchen that prepares, cooks and distributes about 7,000 daily meals to over 70 locations island wide, 365 days a year. Beneficiaries include the elderly, the disabled, low income families, children from single parent families or otherwise poverty stricken families, and migrant workers in Singapore.

The flurry of activities starts as soon as the doors to the kitchen are open. Pots and pans are constantly clanging. Grills sizzle while dishes for the day are prepared. Smells of freshly cooked rice fills the air. Hands busy scooping and packing meal boxes. Sloshing and splashing water while cleaning and washing up. Preparing ingredients such as the chopping of vegetables of the next days. It continues through the day until the last task is completed and the kitchen cleaned and ready for the next day.

Looking forward to representing Cornell while giving back to our local community.  Please register on a first come, first served basis with Joanna Cheng-Ajlani at joannachengws@gmail.com.
