Holiday Care Packages for groups in need

 

The HandsOn team has been ELATED by our community's response to this Care Package appeal, and beyond grateful for all your support and kind words. After meeting our original target within our first day, we are now doubling it to HK$105,000! This would allow us to fund 300 substantial Care Packages for our three charity partners below and their vulnerable service users. The more funds we raise, the more support we can provide to them over the holidays. Thank you all so much. We are incredibly proud to be part of such a caring Hong Kong community ❤️

 

--------------------

For most of us, the holiday season is a time of joyful celebration, but for some, it’s actually the most difficult time of year. One in five Hong Kong citizens live below the poverty line—surviving on less than HK$4,500 each month. Although Hong Kong has managed the COVID-19 health crisis, much of the community continues to struggle, still depending on food banks and charities for basic necessities.

At HandsOn, we assist local nonprofits and their service users year-round by providing much-needed program support and volunteer services. Through this work, we see that certain groups are most at risk, including low-income families, vulnerable elderly, families that have a special needs child, and people suffering from mental health challenges.

Part of the strain on them, and the nonprofits that serve them, can be eased by providing Care Packages over the holidays—which for Hong Kong spans December and January. Each pack will be delivered by a HandsOn volunteer, providing food assistance to help lighten the recipient's financial burden and showing care and warmth.

How you can help

As we enter the Season of Giving, we invite you to help us support these community groups. HandsOn is running an appeal for the next three weeks to fund 150 Holiday Care Packages that will arrive in time for the holidays.

100% of the funds raised will be spent on securing and delivering food and other key items for these packs.  

Each Care Package costs HK$350 and will include the following necessities to last each household one week:

  • Key staples: rice / noodles / oil

  • Tinned protein: fish / meat / beancurd

  • Dried food popular in holidays: seedless red dates / sunflower seeds / dried longans 

  • 1 box of face masks 

  • Other essentials such as SIM cards, art supplies, female hygiene items (as needed)

  • Holiday-themed card made by caring volunteers.

HandsOn is partnering with three local non-profits to provide these holiday Care Packages for the groups they serve across Hong Kong:

Our Goal

We aim to raise a minimum of HKD52,500—to fund at least 150 packs and we can only do it with YOUR support!

Thank you so much in advance for your generosity—we are proud to be part of such a caring and compassionate community. 

Best wishes,

The HandsOn Hong Kong Team

Be the Change. Volunteer.
