GKE Cares – Shoes Donation Drive to Soles4Souls
GKE has collaborated with Soles4Souls in November 2020 to organize a 1 month long shoes donation drive. Soles4Souls is a global organization that turns unwanted shoes and clothing into opportunities to help fight poverty and provide relief. With the tremendous help from our GKE Family, we have successfully collected 516 pairs of shoes and this is 70% more than our original target of 300 pairs. On top of that, GKE also donated more than 15 boxes of clothes to Soles4Souls at the closing of this drive.

GKE Cares – Food Donation Drive to The Food Bank Singapore
COVID-19 has affected countries globally and food supply has inevitably been impacted by this pandemic. We understand that The Food Bank Singapore might experience a drastic drop in food donations during this trying period. As such, GKE has organized a Food Donation Drive for staff to donate non-perishable food items to The Food Bank Singapore for a good cause. Despite not being able to volunteer physically at the premises, our staff displayed immense support as we collected 20 boxes of food items for donation to The Food Bank Singapore on 13 March 2020.
GKE Cares – Volunteering at Willing Hearts
On 25 May 2019, GKE embarked on our biannual CSR Event at Willing Hearts. Being the 'Food for Life' nation, GKE is in sync with the philosophy of Willing Hearts, to provide a warm and fulfilling meal to the underprivileged. From the basic cleaning of the kitchen utensils to the preparation of the food ingredients, our volunteers put in their utmost effort during their 4-hour stint in the kitchen of Willing Hearts. Despite how physically straining the tasks might be, the volunteers had a fruitful and meaningful time in the kitchen – mingling with colleagues from the different functions and doing good work together.
