Hong Kong’s Community Service Week, Serve-a-thon—organized by HandsOn—is returning June 18th to 26th, 2022!
Serve-a-thon was born in 2017 after nearly a decade of the HandsOn team serving the local community and witnessing first-hand that the majority of Hongkongers would like to volunteer but often need help to get started. With a record 1.4 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.
Serve-a-thon brings Hong Kong together to help support local charities and address social needs with a focus on strengthening community ties, as we continue to feel the impacts of the COVID crisis. Volunteer support is vital as frontline charities continue their tireless work serving the city’s most vulnerable.
Serve-a-thon 2022 mobilizes thousands of volunteers to support the community, through nine days of consecutive volunteering. Since the initiative launched, more than 55,000 people in need have been supported.
