McDonald’s Malaysia (Ipoh branch) organised a charity programme at the Blissful Care Centre, Ampang on Wednesday, January 23. It was part of the fast-food chain’s social responsibility programme.
Twenty-six elderly residents of the centre were entertained to food and drinks in conjunction with the upcoming Chinese New Year celebration.
McDonald’s Medan Gopeng general manager, Mohd Azharmarudin said his team of ten spent time organising a number of social activities at the centre.
“Hopefully, our visit today will bring joy and merriment to the residents besides instilling a feeling of empathy among our staff. Time spent with the elderly is very meaningful,” he told Ipoh Echo.
Other than games and a karaoke session, they had the prosperity toss (lou sang), a Chinese New Year tradition.
The residents were also given free haircuts courtesy of Olivia from Hair Emotion Unisex Salon.
