Sino Group's annual "Mooncake Speaks for My Heart" charity tour passes love to the isolated elderly

Sino Group's "Mooncake Speaks for My Heart" charity tour has come to a satisfactory closing. Over 60 Sino volunteers have participated in the mooncake charity sale and the elderly home visit to spread their warmth and blessings among elderly people.

The mooncake charity sale was held on August 30 and 31 at the Olympian City, tmtplaza and Citywalk. Over HKD30,000 were raised by volunteers from Sino Group and Hong Kong Christian Service by selling over 1,000 pieces of mooncakes to the shoppers. All proceeds were donated to Hong Kong Christian Service for isolated elderly support development.

Sino volunteers have also spent a memorable afternoon with elderly on September 6 at the Shun Lee Hostel, which is under the management of Hong Kong Christian Service. They played games and distributed mooncakes and fruits to the elderly to celebrate an early Mid-Autumn Festival.

Sino Volunteer Team has been serving the community over the years. Various programs about caring for elderly in the past included repainting metal gates prior to the Lunar New Year, offering rice dumplings to the elderly prior to the Dragon Boat Festival, and helping the relocation of elderly in old districts reconstruction program.
