SINGAPORE: Some 700 volunteers -- comprising students, community, grassroots and corporate organisations -- have teamed up to spread festive cheer to all 3,600 rental block households in the North West District.

Goodie bags, containing cookies and other food items, were given out to these households.

500 households at Admiralty Division received their festive packs on Thursday.

Preparation for the distribution started at least a week before -- volunteers took charge of packing the donated food items, and went on house visits to inform residents of the forthcoming distribution.

Some also penned customised Lunar New Year messages for the recipients.

It is part of the district's community care programme.
