The Peak School is on a mission to raise enough stationery and art packs for 200 Hong Kong children from low-income families. 1 in 5 Hong Kong children live beneath the poverty line—lacking adequate access to basic necessities such as stationery supplies to support their school-life, expression and creativity.
Our school community is joining forces with the charity HandsOn Hong Kong to raise these important items which will be sorted, packed and delivered to children in need as part of the city’s community service week, Serve-a-thon (May 4 – 12)!
Each Peak School child will need to bring in 3 of the following items on Wednesday April 10th and hand them to their House Captains:
- Coloured pencil set (Cameron House)
- Metal Pencil sharpener AND Eraser (Kellett House)
- Sketch book (Nicholson House)
- Metal/Material Pencil case (Victoria House)
Please – no plastic!
On the morning of Saturday May 4th volunteers from across ESF and Hong Kong will come together to pack these and other items at a Family Volunteering Festival, to celebrate the launch of Serve-a-thon. This volunteer activity will support children from low-income and asylum seeking families, under-privileged elderly and the city’s homeless through a special morning of sorting, packing, gift-card creation and the making of recycled bags and mats for the homeless—all in support of the local community!
Be part of the action—sign up here to volunteer on May 4th. Children aged 5+ are welcome with an adult. You’ll need to create a HandsOn volunteer profile here before signing your family up.
