The best way to learn hospitality is to put it to practice and show it...
And this was just the case when students volunteers from the Tourism Management Institute of Singapore (TMIS) visited The Salvation Army's Family Support Services (FSS) to bless our beneficiaries.

This is the second time TMIS volunteers render their services to FSS'
Food Ration Programme. Prior to the distribution day, volunteers put together food rations. A week before, Gina (Student Welfare Executive of TMIS) visited FSS with 5 other student representatives and delivered the food rations they were donating to FSS.
When the day for distribution came, 13 TMIS students lent their "helping hands" at the distribution in Bukit Merah.

Though the TMIS students volunteers come from different countries and spoke different languages, this did not keep them from interacting with the seniors.
Their friendliness and helpfulness brought joy and warmth to the seniors and we can see that the seniors were indeed delighted to receive their rations from a bunch of youthful and cheerful students.
Beyond just interacting, the students further showed the spirit of hospitality and helped seniors who required assistance to carry their rations back to their home, as well as helped make door-to-door delivery for the home-bound seniors.

We are glad to have been able to wrap up another meaningful volunteer partnership, bringing joy and our volunteers and our seniors together. Thank you TMIS volunteers!
