SINGAPORE - More than 100 Mapletree staff have voluntarily contributed their cash payouts from the Government to help those employed at the company's retail properties who are on unpaid leave.

The employees donated their $600 solidarity payments, given out to most Singaporeans in mid-April, to the Mapletree Community Sharing Fund.

The money is being channelled to more than 180 employees of tenants and service providers working at Mapletree's retail properties through cash grants.

The fund is Mapletree's corporate social responsibility initiative to help those who work at the properties and have been on unpaid leave to help cushion the financial impact of the pandemic.

The fund has collected at least $85,000 so far, said Mapletree Investments in a statement on Friday.
