Canon Hongkong Corporate Volunteer Team Attained the Gold Award for Volunteer Service (Organization) 2016

Canon Hongkong encourages employees to put love and care into true actions, which CHK Corporate Volunteer Team was established as a proof. We are successful gathered enthusiastic employees who voluntarily devoted their leisure time into sending cares to different audiences in the society through an array of social services. In 2016, 85 corporate volunteers have served in 12 programmes, contributed total 1,830 hours of service to the community. And these service hours achieved the Gold Award for Volunteer Service (Organization) 2016 issued by the Volunteer Movement of Social Welfare Department.

CHK Corporate Volunteer Team supported 12 programmes with beneficiaries including children, elderly, low-income families as well as the environmental protection. What’s more, the team developed regular service on surplus market food collection with People Service Centre. Every Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, our volunteers formed small teams to help collecting the surplus food from wet market, which will then be re-distributed to the needy in Kowloon City district. Our team rescued total 19,460kg leftovers from June to December of 2016, equally average 224kg of surplus food daily which included fruits, vegetables, meat, bread, fish and even fresh seafood. We are success to promote good use of food and meanwhile developed close relation in the community by this continuous volunteer service. Our team truly feels the happiness through volunteer service participation and proved that it is better to give than to receive.

Furthermore, four outstanding volunteers are attained the Silver and Bronze Award as appreciation for their individual contribution by accumulated over 100 and 50 service hours during 2016. To devote personal leisure time into sending cares to the society, they surely demonstrate a good role model and bring stronger team spirit and cohesion to the team.

and certainly to continue support various services.
