3M Step-Up Challenge @ South East is a 5E* programme to inculcate a giving spirit among individuals and organisations by encouraging them to climb stair for a good cause.
The partnership with 3M started in 2011 and we have raised over $240,000 worth of products for more than 4,000 vulnerable residents over the past three years.
Quotes from partner:
“3M as an organisation, we believe in giving back to the community. It is not just about sponsorship, but getting our people to be involved in the community.”
