Bank of China (Hong Kong) Supports The Community Chest in Distributing Care Kits to the Needy Starting This Week
As the novel coronavirus continues to rag, Bank of China (Hong Kong) generously donated HK$13 million to the Chest for novel coronavirus relief. This initiative includes the distribution of 50,000 Care Kits to the underprivileged. Representatives of The Community Chest took time to participate in packing the Care Kits.

About The Community Chest of Hong Kong
The Community Chest of Hong Kong was established in 1968 as an independent, non-profit making organisation neither funded nor operated by the Government. The Chest has been serving Hong Kong for over 50 years. Each year, the Chest organises fund-raising events for over 160 social welfare member agencies to provide services to more than 2.5 million beneficiaries in Hong Kong in six major areas of services: children & youth, elderly, family & child welfare, medical & health, rehabilitation & aftercare, and community development. The Chest’s administration expenses come from a subsidised grant from our partner-in-charity, The Hong Kong Jockey Club, in addition to income from investments. This allows the Chest to allocate 100% of funds raised to charitable use; this operations model makes the Chest unique among its peers, and helps fulfil its mission to act as trustee of the donors.
