Embracing the Christmas spirit of giving, CDL rallied its tenants from Republic Plaza, City House and Fuji Xerox Towers to support its “Christmas Gift of Love” initiative.
Dressed in festive Christmas hues, a troupe of CDL employees carollers regaled the children beneficiaries with seasonal classics such as “Joy to the World” and “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing” during the “Christmas Gift of Love” gift presentation.

Beyond galvanising its tenants’ support, City Sunshine Club (CSC) — CDL’s employee volunteer platform — also organised a Christmas party at its Forest Woods showflat for over 40 children beneficiaries of ARC Children’s Centre. Pictured here is a CDL employee volunteer dressed as Santa who brought merriment and laughter with his cheery ho-ho-hos to the children.
In partnership with three non-profit organisations — Beyond Social Services, Industrial & Services Co-operative Society Ltd, and Singapore Children’s Society — over 200 children beneficiaries had the opportunity of having their Christmas wishes fulfilled.
CDL invited its tenants and employees to play Santa, by contributing the gift items on the children’s wish list.
About 400 Christmas gifts were then presented to the children during a special festive celebration held at the lobbies of Republic Plaza, City House and Fuji Xerox Towers on 5, 7 and 19 December 2017 respectively.
After a medley of Christmas carols and seasonal classics performed by CDL employees, the children beneficiaries were presented with beautifully-wrapped gifts on their wish lists, and were treated to a delightful afternoon tea.
Members of CDL’s Senior Management joined in the celebrations as well to lend their voices in the Christmas carolling and give out presents to the children.
