ymca proms @ the park (2015 & 2016)
In July 2016, Porcelain participated in the YMCA’s Proms @ The Park 2016, with COMNET @ Teck Ghee as our beneficiary. The staff at Porcelain each had the chance to befriend and spend time with the elderly, through a day of games and performances. President Tony Tan graced us all with his attendance as the Guest of Honor for the day.

We sponsored and closed the store for an entire day, and did facials for 100 elderly (many who have never experienced a facial in their entire lives :)), followed by an afternoon of lunch and music performances.

beyond social services (2013)
With the help of our generous sponsors, we are proud to say that we managed to raise a sum of $5000, with an additional $5000 donation to purchase 100 packs of food items.
The Porcelain team took a day off to pack and distribute the items to the residents doorsteps. While it was unbelievably tough, it was extremely meaningful and we know that our hard work has paid off when we exchange it for smiles that brightened our day.

SINGAPORE COUNCIL OF WOMEN’S ORGANISATION (2010 and 2011)
We conducted skincare workshops to some of the women who have been victims of domestic abuse, raised funds and collected donations (clothes and other items) which could be sold in their Thrift Shop.
