Dear Dharma Brothers and Sisters

Nespray milk powder refills
Cream crackers / marie biscuits
Cooking oil (restaurant kitchen tin size)
Jam / Margarine
Tea leaves (kopitiam type)
Ikan Bilis for porridge/soups
We will be buying them today/tomorrow so if you are keen to contribute, could you buy some of your own according to the list?
These will be offered during the Food Offering (to lower realms) on Sunday during Ngakso Puja. Then on Tuesday, 4th September, our monks will bring the offerings to the home and meet the elderly during their lunch hour. If you would like to help with transport or distribution, or just tour the home, please join us.
