NUS Day of Service 2021


Organising Committee Message

Do Your Part!


The annual Day of Service takes place on the first Saturday of September every year.

This year, let’s reflect on how we can each lend a helping hand to those in need. Join us now, on 4 September, and beyond as we celebrate those among us who have made a difference.



Find opportunities to give back to the community in your own time, and join us as we celebrate the stories of our NUS Day of Service Heroes.

Check our Facebook page for more updates, and if you have done something for the community during this difficult period, let us know!

Stories: Going Beyond Compassion

The Astronauts Collective

Motivated to help youths seek meaningful careers, NUS Business School alumnus Marvin Kang (Business '12) co-founded The Astronauts Collective (TAC), a non-profit initiative that helps youths find meaningful careers and stay courageous and open-minded as they navigate the world of work.

Out of the Box education start-up founders
Ang Yu Qian (Design and Environment '13) and Kloe Ng (Design and Environment '13) came up with the timely idea to provide children of less privileged backgrounds with portable briefcase-sized cardboard boxes that unpack to form their very own tables and stools.

See how their initiative has benefitted dozens of families here.

Out of the Box
The Giving Collective

An initiative spearheaded by alumnae Anne Neo (Pharmacy '18), The Giving Collective collects bread, buns and pastries from bakeries and confectionaries to be redistributed for free. The team of volunteers also gathers other excessive perishable goods with a mission to alleviate hunger while reducing food wastage.

An established non-profit organisation founded in 2013, Food from the Heart has reached over 53,700 beneficiaries across Singapore with its sustainable food support. When COVID-19 struck, the leading charity responded quickly and food packs went out speedily. It was also able to take on hundreds of beneficiaries when other social service agencies were unable to serve during the circuit breaker.
