Members of Team Young NTUC (TYN) Wildlife toiled over many weekends to make ACRES (Animal Concerns Research & Education Society) Wildlife Rescue Centre a better place so that animals in the wild can recuperate in a more conducive environment.
The members helped to clean up the surroundings in ACRES, got rid of weeds in the mini garden, and built a cement fence surrounding ACRES to prevent the overgrowth of weeds. ACRES organised an appreciation night on 11 November 2010 to thank its volunteers.
Shared ACRES Director of Community Outreach Charlene Tan: “Young NTUC promotes social responsibility and provides a great platform for volunteerism - something that we're very supportive of.
“It is through this that both ACRES and Young NTUC are able to reach out to new people to raise awareness on the plight of the wildlife today, so they can make a difference for these animals.”
TYN Wildlife Manager Elaine Leong and Assistant Team Manager Michelle Lu, together with 12 other volunteers attended, the appreciation night, and were conferred a certificate of appreciation by ACRES Executive Director Louis Ng.
TYN Wildlife is one of Young NTUC’s newest affinity groups. Since its formation, it has worked closely with ACRES.
