National Day (August 9) is rapidly approaching. Previously, the occasion would normally be marked by the National Day Parade (NDP), but with Covid-19, the celebrations will be pared back this year since large gatherings are not possible. As part of this year’s celebrations, the NDP2020 executive committee will be giving a Singapore Together Pack to every Singaporean and permanent resident (PR) household. Each household is entitled to collect one funpack.

What is in the NDP funpack?

The pack will include hand sanitisers, a thermometer and face masks, besides snacks and canned drinks.

This year’s packs feature 10 designs on the bags by aspiring artists with disabilities from seven organisations, in collaboration with SG Enable. There will also be 10 designs by Primary 5 pupils, in collaboration with the Ministry of Education.

When can you collect the NDP funpack?

The packs can be collected at all CCs from Jul 20 to Aug 2. They are also available at all RC centres from now till Sunday.

Collection times are from 10am to 6pm, excluding public holidays. Residents must present their NRIC at the collection counters for verification.

Where can you collect the NDP funpack?

Residents can go to sgtogetherpack.gowhere.gov.sg to find the nearest collection centres.

Who can collect the NDP funpack?

The People’s Association has called for only one member from each household to collect the pack to avoid crowding at collection points. Safe distancing measures and temperature taking will also be implemented at the collection centres.

It added: “In line with the NDP2020 theme ‘Together, A Stronger Singapore’, the Singapore Together Pack demonstrates our solidarity as a united, inclusive and resilient nation amidst Covid-19, and presents Singaporeans with a physical connection to the NDP experience.”
