In recent years, apart from making direct donations to support charity, corporations have put more efforts in shouldering social responsibilities by encouraging their staff members in participating in voluntary work to help address social needs.
In view of this development, the Chest actively helps match these voluntary resources with over 160 member social welfare agencies. It takes more than monetary contributions to make a difference. These co-operations allowed Corporations and their staff to reach out and express their care to the underprivileged. For more information on the services and projects supported by the Chest, please visit "Services and Projects".
