7-Eleven Malaysia is back with its annual donation drive for the underprivileged
Kuala Lumpur, 14 May 2018 – 7-Eleven Malaysia, the nation’s favourite convenience store chain in Malaysia continues its endeavours of helping underprivileged communities through its annual donation drive, Semurni Kasih, under the Community Care program.
The donation drive is held in conjunction with the month of Ramadhan, and will run for 6 weeks until 18 June 2018. Customers can offer their support by donating necessities such as food, beverages, household essentials, and other supplies purchased from 7-Eleven stores and place them into dedicated contribution boxes in more than 2,235 stores nationwide. As the tagline ‘You Contribute, We Distribute’ suggests, contributions received will then be distributed by 7-Eleven Malaysia to various charity homes and charitable causes across the nation.
Through the campaign in 2017, 7-Eleven Malaysia has disbursed nearly RM11 million worth of provisions to more than 1,800 beneficiaries since its inception in 2008.
Mr. Ronan Lee, Marketing General Manager of 7-Eleven Malaysia said, “We are ever grateful to our customers who have supported Semurni Kasih throughout the past 10 years. It has been a fulfilling journey for us thus far and through joint efforts with our patrons, we aim to do more for the underprivileged community this year as well.”
Semurni Kasih is part of 7-Eleven Malaysia’s Community Care, a non-profit entity set up to implement corporate responsibility and philanthropic initiatives in support of underprivileged groups and sustains environmental conservation efforts.
