Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.
Kindred Community is Great Glory Church’s community outreach arm. It is a volunteer-based community service organisation that seeks to extend our value of loving God, to love and serve the communities where we live and work in.
Together with other like-minded organizations and individuals regardless of race, language, or religion, we want to build a clean environment for all, one clean thought and deed at a time. At Kindred, two key principles guide us in all that we do. First, it starts with our thoughts. Thoughts are important because they determine how we live and interact with the environment and people around us.
Hence, we believe in developing good, clean thoughts within the Kindred Community. Yet, the grandest of intentions are nothing compared to the smallest deed. That is why we value the mentality of taking action – not to benefit just oneself, but the community and the world we live in.
Cleanups alone cannot solve the wider environmental issue, but they have proven to promote change in individual behaviour as well as inspired joint actions and collaborations to work for sustainable solutions.
In 2018, Kindred launched the first World Cleanup Day in Singapore, with 6 cleanup locations in the inland areas of Singapore, including an exciting `plogging` run along the green corridor, while our partner from International Coastal Cleanup Singapore (ICCS) covered our entire coastlines as a collective effort. https://kindred.sg/world-clean-up-day/
