Shopping Supports a Soup Kitchen

10 June 2010 - 6:02pm Comments Off

The city’s most talked about soup kitchen, KECHARA SOUP KITCHEN, will be at 1Utama Shopping Centre’s Community Corner this weekend to raise awareness of their good work to aid the homeless.

Organised as a bi-annual event by 1 Utama Shopping Centre, this community outreach initiative has invited KSK to participate once again. This time, KSK welcomes many new friends to come visit their booth and learn more about what they’re doing to feed the homeless and give them new opportunities in life.

Date:   June 12 & 13, 2010
Time:   10am to 10.30pm (Saturday)
10am to 10pm (Sunday)
Venue: Community Corner, First Floor Oval, 1Utama Shopping Centre

All are welcome to drop by and meet KSK’s friendly volunteers who will be there to share more information about the soup kitchen. The public are also invited to make donations as a way of contributing towards their growing work.

KSK will also be selling donated items like second-hand designer bags, shoes and clothes to raise funds. Specially designed KSK t-shirts will also be available for sale at RM38 as part of their fundraising initiative.

KSK is a registered NGO whose volunteers go out every weekend, bringing vegetarian hot food and dry food to over 800 hungry men, women and children on the streets, regardless of race, culture or creed.

Its objective is to help the homeless get off the streets – through finding shelter homes or jobs that will bring dignity back to their shattered lives. To achieve this, KSK creates relationships with each individual, to find out the causes of each circumstance and his or her needs.

KSK has recently acquired a permanent building where the homeless can be given hot food daily, medical aid, job placement, etc. In the long term, KSK aims to reduce the flow of homeless living on the streets by providing a NURTURE CENTRE as a place of training and assistance to help make the homeless employable and for them to re-enter society.

All proceeds from this event will go to KSK’s new Building Fund and operation costs.
