CORPORATE VOLUNTEERING 2022

HandsOn Hong Kong partners with all types of companies to collectively serve the community. Over the years, we’re proud to have partnered with more than 200 companies and their passionate volunteers. Together we have built a range of meaningful service programs for their employees, clients and our frontline charity partners. Here are a few examples of what we do together.

                               

Serve-a-thon 2022: a blueprint for how businesses can improve their communities one “volunteer day” at a time

Hong Kong companies came together to support local causes; thirty businesses including Community Champions Johnson & Johnson, and Marriott Bonvoy, put their people and resources into supporting grassroot organisations during a nine-day community volunteering drive. Highlights include area clean ups – both beaches and popular hiking routes; soap recycling and distribution to underserved families; and delivering necessities to isolated elderly. Our staple “virtual programs” also featured, as volunteers took the time to teach English to school children, take part in mindful ‘zentangle’ drawing sessions for better mental health, and prepare ‘inspiration jars’ to help lift local communities. Thank you to everyone that gave their time during our community service week.

 

With the Covid-19 outbreak constantly evolving, we are all living with so much uncertainty.

The lavender properties in these sachet bags help to calm and relax. Thank you to all involved!

 

 

Staying connected to your community and each other is so important in time likes these

The team from #RPC managed to do both today when they got #HandsOn from their homes or office to make eco-friendly soaps with our team. All made from natural products without any harmful chemicals, and containers will be re-used and returned to our workshop trainer. These thoughtful CNY gifts will be delivered by our team to seniors supported Harmony Garden Lutheran Centre for the Elderly, along with a special video greeting filmed by every volunteer #StayStrongHongKong #StrongerTogether #HandsOnHongKong

 

Hongkongland is passionate about giving back in every community they have a presence

And so they worked with #HandsOn to deliver a volunteer event in Singapore. HCSA Dayspring Residential Treatment Centre’s teenage girls recovering from trauma and abuse spoke to Hongkong Land’s compassionate and supportive volunteers about potential career paths and job opportunities that exist globally Volunteers from different functions across Hongkong Land's Singapore and South East Asia offices formed a virtual 'human library' to share their professional journeys with the girls--followed by a practical session on the basics of CV writing and interview preparation! Thank you all for being a part of such a #ChangeMaking program
