If you’re being a socially responsible citizen and keeping to the government’s latest circuit breaker measures, then you should be staying at home as much as possible now. But even as we hunker down in the safety of our homes, let’s not forget about the front-line workers and healthcare professionals that continue to work tirelessly to keep our nation fed and safe.

Hawkers, cleaners, drivers, nurses and doctors, as well as those from lower-income families, need extra protection. And you can help by donating your extra masks and sanitisation supplies to them.

Under the initiative, Contribute SG, people can visit various drop-off points around Singapore to donate surgical masks and N95 masks, along with sanitising items. These will then be given to those in voluntary welfare organisations, non-governmental organisations, medical institutions, and even hawker centres.

With fewer excuses to head out (and reusable masks distributed by the government), consider giving away the extra masks you have lying around to those that need it more. All you need to do is pack all unused masks in a clean zip lock bag (for hygienic reasons), seal it, and drop it off at one of these seven locations:
