HONG KONG'S COMMUNITY SERVICE WEEK, SERVE-A-THON—ORGANIZED BY HANDSON—IS RETURNING May 8th to 16th, 2021!
Serve-a-thon was born in 2017 after nearly a decade of the HandsOn team serving the Hong Kong community and witnessing first-hand that the majority of citizens would like to volunteer but often need help to get started. With a record 1.37 million people living below the poverty line—existing on as little as HK$4,000 per month—the role Hong Kong non-profits play is more important than ever. They work tirelessly to serve the city's most vulnerable but cannot do it alone.
Serve-a-thon brings Hong Kong together to help address social needs and unites each of us in the name of service. Serve-a-thon 2020 brought together thousands of volunteers across Hong Kong to help over 3,000 people in need—either 'virtually' from their home or office, or in-person. Since the launch of this annual HandsOn week of service, more than 52,000 people in need have been supported.
