SINGAPORE - A MULTINATIONAL manufacturing company donated packs of household products to 1,200 low-income families in the South East district on Thursday.

It came after 3M held a two-month charity stair-climbing drive - the 3M Step-Up Challenge - which it organised with the South East Community Development Council (CDC).

The company had pledged to donate one product for every 500 steps taken by participants.

By the finale on Thursday afternoon, 27,000 participants had racked up 6.5 million steps and a total of 12,000 household products - including mops, hot or cold packs for muscle aches and anti-slip floor stickers. These will be distributed in packs of 10, each worth $100.
