Volunteer Service

A volunteer team formed by staff members of the Housing Society has been established since 1998. The team members and their families actively participate in a variety of volunteer and community programmes to help the people in need including the elderly and under-resourced families. The contribution of our volunteer team has been recognised with the Gold Award presented by the Social Welfare Department for years.
 

Besides, volunteer teams have been formed by residents in a number of Housing Society estates, including Kwun Lung Lau, Lai Tak Tsuen, Jat Min Chuen, Ming Wah Dai Ha, Cheerful Court and Chung Ling Sheh of Cho Yiu Chuen, to serve the community.  They have also received the Gold Award for Volunteer Service presented by the Social Welfare Department.
