The Community Chest was established in 1968 to serve the needy in Hong Kong. Each year, the Chest supports over 160 social welfare member agencies to provide services to more than 2.5 million beneficiaries.
As a charitable organisation, the Chest has always endeavoured to engage with the younger generation. Each year, we arrange school visits to reach out to students and to inspire them to take up the reigns as active and contributing members of the community.
During the school visit, we will introduce the work of the Chest, how donations would be utilised, and the services it subvents. Our social welfare member agencies will also be invited to participate in the sharing sessions.
Our member agencies cover a wide range of services. This would enable participating schools to identify service themes to complement the school curriculum, such as disability inclusion, adolescent mental health, caring for the underprivileged, building positive values, volunteer training and more.
