An event conducted by TSMP Law Corporation under its Handprint umbrella in July 2019 was mentioned by President Halimah Yacob as a good example of corporate citizenship at the launch of the National Volunteerism and Philanthropy Centre’s new strategic vision.
The Straits Times article published on 15 October 2019 wrote:
“Breaking the taboo of discussing end-of-life issues, a law firm and a community organisation worked together to help more than 120 senior citizens understand more about these matters. In July, TSMP Law Corporation and the Cassia Resettlement Team organised a party at Block 52 Cassia Crescent, where lawyers shared information with seniors on topics such as the Lasting Power of Attorney scheme, the Advance Medical Directive, and wills. The Cassia Resettlement Team is made up of volunteers who focus on helping senior residents who moved from Dakota Crescent to Cassia Crescent after the former area was slated for redevelopment.”
Her Excellency noted that the collaboration is one example of how organisations can contribute to the National Volunteer and Philanthropy Centre’s (NVPC) new strategic vision of building a City of Good.
TSMP Law Corporation’s head of community services June Ho was present at the event. You may find out more about TSMP’s Handprint here.
