USANA Malaysia and the USANA Foundation recently donated 1,000 food packs to 1,000 families in need during a charity drive on June 13 in Jalan San Peng.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has been so destructive all over the world, and all of USANA’s markets have really stepped up in a big way to help those in need,” said David Mulham, USANA’s chief sales officer. “USANA Malaysia’s generous donation will go a long way to helping families that have been so negatively affected by the virus.”
The charity drive was done in partnership between USANA Malaysia, the USANA Foundation and the Suriana Welfare Society, a registered Malaysian Non-Government Organization focused on child protection. Since 2011, it has been involved in protecting the rights of children who have been subject to abuse, abandonment and neglect.
Assistance was also received from several teams of USANA Associates. The teams loaded trucks with packs of food to be delivered to the needy families, all while practicing good social distancing habits. Each pack contained essential food items such as, rice, noodles, biscuits, canned meats and healthy beverages. The total donation amount equals MYR 117,782. The company also made an additional monetary donation of MYR 33,000 to support the cause.
“The call went out from the government to corporations in Malaysia to help those who have been impacted by COVID-19, so we got right to work finding out how we could help,” said Vivienne Lee, USANA’s regional vice president of Malaysia, Singapore and Taiwan. “There is a serious need for food supplies right now in Malaysia, which is why we partnered with the Suriana Welfare Society to help distribute the food packs. We are very grateful for the help provided by the Suriana Welfare Society, USANA Malaysia’s employees and all the USANA Associates who came out to donate their time.”
