Fundraising Flag Day 2010

Posted: 20 February 2010

Flag Day this year was held on Saturday, 20th February 2010. Preparations for the Flag Day started as early as October 2009. DPA recruited volunteers from secondary schools, junior colleges and tertiary institutions. Over 2,500 from 42 educational institutions supported the event. Students from CHIJ St Theresas Convent and Geylang Methodist Secondary School assisted with the administrative preparations of Flag Day. 

DPA had 17 collection centers island wide. DPA also had the support of Singapore Association for the Deaf who allowed DPA to use their premises for the counting of monies collected for the Flag Day 2010. The collection for DPAs Flag Day 2010 was $75,416.18 and donations in support of Flag Day were $30,600. DPA would like to thank our Management, Organisers, Members and volunteers for helping out at the Flag Day. Without their commitment and support, this event would not have been possible.
