It is easy to get caught up in the daily grind, especially in a bustling city where people always have somewhere to go and something to do. When we’re busy, we are more likely to think of ourselves and ignore those around us.

In an act of kindness, a group of GrabFood riders organised a charity ride to give food to less fortunate people around the Toa Payoh area.

The riders posted about their activity on the GrabFood Delivery Rider Singapore Facebook page. The post has been met with admiration from netizens.

The GrabFood riders, who deliver food to customer as part of their job, now pitched in and gathered donations to prepare food packages for needy people living on the streets.

The riders volunteered to prepare and repackage dry goods, and boxes of food. In the evening, they drove around Toa Payoh and handed out the food bags to the people living on the streets.

Netizens praised the GrabFood riders for their charitable initiative. One commenter expressed an interest to participate in future charity rides.

Hopefully, this GrabFood riders’ kindness can encourage other people to go out of their way to help the needy.

After all, a strong community is built on the foundation of helping one another./TISG
