HONG KONG'S COMMUNITY SERVICE WEEK, SERVE-A-THON—ORGANIZED BY HANDSON—IS RETURNING MAY 23RD TO 31ST, 2020!
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. The 2019 edition of Serve-a-thon mobilized the community to give more than 7,500 hours of their time to support 21,000+ of Hong Kong's most in need, addressing issues such as poverty, education, assisting the elderly, empowering people with disabilities, environmental conservation and more.
