HONG KONG'S COMMUNITY SERVICE WEEK, SERVE-A-THON—ORGANIZED BY HANDSON—IS RETURNING MAY 4TH T0 12TH, 2019!
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—NGOs, business, schools, families, government and media—in the name of service. The 2018 edition of Serve-a-thon supported more than 18,000 people in need with the help of 2,000 volunteers giving their time in just one week.
