The holy month of Ramadan is upon us, bringing with it a wave of hope, goodwill and the desire to reach out and help the less fortunate in our community.
In association with Prasarana Malaysia Berhad, SOCAR has launched the ‘Share-A-Gift’ charity drive, a unique multiflex charity drive that enables people to help others while still on the go this Ramadan.
Unlike other conventional charity drives, the Share-A-Gift campaign will take place at popular LRT and MRT stations across the Klang Valley. Commuters passing by these locations can simply drop the items they wish to donate in a SOCAR stationed there, giving them the flexibility of time and choice to partake in charity activities according to their schedule.
The collected items will then be donated to SOCAR’s partner NGO, Dignity for Children.
Along with donating the items to aforementioned charity, SOCAR will also contribute the member fee collected during the drive to Dignity for Children.
SOCAR ‘Share-A-Gift’ Campaign Rundown
Interested individuals eager to make a donation can do so through the following simple steps:
- Visit one of the participating SOCAR zones at the MRT/ LRT Stations:
- Open the SOCAR app and register as a member. If you haven’t already registered to be a member, the SOCAR ambassadors will be there to help you out.
- Show your profile to a SOCAR ambassador.
- Unlock the car and drop the items* you wish you donate in the car.
- Congratulate yourself on the good deed you have just performed! We will take care of the rest.
* Donations can be made in any form and quantity. Where there are no restrictions on the items you wish to donate, kindly refrain from donating perishables. If you wish to give away food, SOCAR encourages donors to share dry food packets.
