Serve-a-thon Hong Kong brings together NGOs, corporates, government, media and civil society in collaboration to raise public awareness about the importance of community engagement in helping address social issues.
Over nine days, from May 6th through May 14th, the city will unite in service through hundreds of volunteer activities taking place across Hong Kong. This Hong Kong-wide 'service marathon' offers volunteer opportunities for individuals, families, schools, civic organizations and corporations to come together and serve the community.
More than 75 major cities around the world host some form of service marathon. Serve-a-thon Hong Kong will be the largest-ever collective volunteerism-based event of its kind in Hong Kong. 2017 is the inaugural year of this annual event. HandsOn Hong Kong is proud to be partnering with the Hong Kong Council of Social Serivce to present Serve-a-thon Hong Kong.
