SINGAPORE COMMUNITY OUTREACH PROGRAMME

Otis Singapore volunteers brings smiles to the local community. At Otis, we are proud to be actively involved with the community we serve through our corporate philanthrophy as well as the individual contributions of our employees.

Otis Singapore joins all UTC business units in Singapore in the annual Community Day
In November 2008, Otis together with the other UTC businesses in Singapore participated in the American Chamber Corporate Community Day. More than 300 employees and their families gathered to clean up a public park and beach in the eastern part of Singapore. The volunteers attended the lecture series on environmental awareness which helped encourage all volunteers to think Green on this meaningful day.


Employees contributed to charity food drive; participated as volunteers and brought joy and laughter to elderly at SWAMI Homee
Otis employees and their family members spent a meaningful morning together on 30 August 2008 and visited the elderly at SWAMI Home.

This is the second time that employee volunteering activity has been organised at this home. Amongst the volunteers, consisting of young children, spouses and parents of the employees, many have participated at the 2007 “mini-Olympics event” where they played games with the elderly and toured the home.

Like the last time, this year’s programme were designed by the volunteers and started with the painting activity. Each volunteer partnered with an elderly to design and paint on a wooden box. The box was later presented to the elderly as a souvenir keepsake. The volunteers also co-hosted the “Bingo” game with one of the resident and turned the earlier quiet ambience to one that is filled with excitement and roaring laughter.

Prior to the event, a charity food drive was organised. Singapore and SAPA employees contributed generously to the charity food drive, which sees more than U$2,000 worth of food items collected at the end of the charity drive. These items together, with a token cash contribution were presented to the home at the end of the event.

Said Project Supervisor, Mohd Amran Abas,” The look on the faces of the elderly – their smiles and them clapping hands and enjoying themselves have certainly touched my heart and gave me the satisfaction in bringing joy to their life.”

Escalator/Elevator Safety Awareness
Continuing our endeavor to promote safe use of the escalators and elevators, especially in young children, Otis Singapore organised a safety awareness talk for pre-school children at Cherie Hearts Nurture Cottage in July 2008.

The program included a lively presentation of safety messages by the animated character, Mr Otis and two short video stories on the do’s and don’ts when using the escalators and elevators. The children aged between 4 and 6 years old were captivated by the catchy tunes and were soon humming to the song “ Think Safe, Act Safe, Be Safe”.

The session ended with a quiz which put to test the children’s knowledge of safe riding habits – and that again, filled the room with plenty of excitement!
