Kuala Lumpur, 31 March 2020 – 7-Eleven Malaysia, the nation’s leading convenience chain store, carries on its goodwill by launching ‘Lend a Helping Hand’ campaign to provide relief and help ease the burden of beneficiaries whom are impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic in the country as well as to our heroic front liners that are working tirelessly to keep us all safe.
This charitable program will be until the 14th April 2020 tentatively and the public is encouraged to contribute through the campaign by purchasing necessities and supplies from 7-Eleven stores nationwide and placing them into the collection box. Supplies could range from instant food, groceries, beverages, medications, and other household cleaning essentials found in the store. The public may also drop off essential general supplies into the collection box and the contributions will then be channelled by 7-Eleven to the nearest beneficiaries in each area nationwide including government hospitals and medical clinics, other civil service front-liners, charity homes such as those for the elderly and children, public universities, students’ dormitories and more. Contribution handovers will have necessary precautions in place such as minimal interaction between donor and recipients with the collected items dropped off outside the recipient’s facility wherever possible.
“Everybody can play a part to lend a hand during these trying times and we can always count on the extraordinary kind generosity of the public in supporting our efforts of providing any form of relief to the disadvantaged communities as well as our selfless front-liners who have been heroic in the face of unprecedented adversity. Let us all stay strong together and be there for each other as #KitaJagaKita,” said Ronan Lee, Marketing General Manager of 7-Eleven Malaysia.5
