TAWAU: Sports Toto kick-started its 33rd Sports Toto Chinese New Year Ang Pow Donation Campaign which benefits over 19,000 needy senior citizens nationwide, 250 of them from Tawau.

Sports Toto’s area sales executive for Tawau, Andrew Lee, said Tawau was one of the 50 locations selected for this campaign and the elderly aged 60 years and above were given ang pows and mini hampers.

He said through the campaign, Sports Toto aimed to achieve the objective of instilling positive values such as respecting and caring for elders. 

To date, Sports Toto has contributed over RM22 million benefiting more than 410,000 senior citizens nationwide since the inception of the donation campaign in 1988.

It said festive seasons are best times for reaching out to the underprivileged. 

“Other than festive donations, Sports Toto also contributes substantial amounts annually to the National Sports Council and sporting events organised by local sports associations to help the development of national sporting talents,” he added.
