Volunteers from OCBC Bank took about 30 residents from the AWWA Community Home for Senior Citizens to Chinatown on Feb 8. This is the first time bank volunteers escorted the residents to the heart of Chinatown - giving the senior citizens a chance to soak in the festive mood and to reminisce. The outing also allowed the younger and non-Chinese volunteers to understand Chinese culture better and to learn from the residents how Chinese New Year was celebrated in the past. The excursion began with a tour, followed by some time to pick up some festive goodies.
