Part 2 Relationship Building Is a Vital Part of Ensuring Good Property Value
There was a showcase of upcycled items such as the electricity generator bicycle and tyre seats that were created by young innovative UTAR students, and arts and crafts activity booths.
This was meaningful as IOI Properties Group has always supported and empowered youths towards sustainability ownership.
The community in Puchong had also participated in the IOI-Active Citizens Bargain Basement Competition organised in support of Bargain Basement, a social enterprise by Yayasan Tan Sri Lee Shin Cheng, by donating and purchasing pre-loved items with net sale proceeds going to charity.
Persatuan Penduduk Bandar Puteri 8, Persatuan Penduduk Bandar Puteri 12, Persatuan Penduduk Tempua and KPMC Puchong Specialist Centre collectively raised RM2,150, which was matched in equal amount by Yayasan Tan Sri Lee Shin Cheng.
The total amount of RM4,300 raised was presented to charity homes selected by the respective residents’ associations, namely Pertubuhan Kebajikan Pusat Jagaan Lotus Malaysia, Rumah Shalom and Suriana Welfare Society.
Yayasan Tan Sri Lee Shin Cheng’s Wong praised the efforts by the Residents’ Associations of Bandar Puteri Puchong for rallying the community to come together and to do their bit for the society and environment.
“By donating unwanted items that are still in good condition, it benefits the environment as the goods can be used by someone else instead of going to a landfill.
“Goods that can be re-used is an economical way for people in all socio-economic levels to acquire items they need, assist the communities and minimise waste,” she said. And in areas where the socioeconomic levels are raised, so too do property values increase.
