In conjunction with HDB Community Week 2019, HDB organised the fifth run of Broom It! Day, a Project SPHERE event on 29 May 2019. The event was organised in collaboration with COMNET Senior Activity Centre (SAC) at Blk 206A Punggol Place.
The event was graced by our partners and corporate sponsors: Edgefield Secondary School, COMNET AMKFSC Community Services Ltd, Harmony Activity Centre, Evergreen Circle Senior Activity Centre, Harmony Activity Centre, Singapore Pools Pte Ltd, Nippon Paint (Singapore), Prime Supermarket Limited, and Ya Kun International Pte Ltd.
320 students from Edgefield Secondary School as well as staff from Singapore Pools carried out spring cleaning activities at 28 rental flats. In addition, Singapore Pools and our other corporate sponsors: Prime Supermarket Limited and Yakun International Pte Ltd also distributed EASY tables to elderly rental households identified by the SAC.
As part of Broom It! Day 2019, 400 painted photo frames were put together to form a collage, setting a new record under the Singapore Book of Records. This collage signified the collective efforts of students and elderly coming together to build inter-generational ties in the community.
