Hong Kong - The Mid-Autumn Festival is a day that brings friends and families together. Milton and its volunteer team this year experienced a festival that means much more by participating in the “Cake of Love”, a caring society project that jointly held by the Youth Outreaching Social Work Team and Hin Keng Centre of Chinese YMCA. Milton supported the event through a small donation and by sending out a volunteer team to participate in the project.
In early September, some colleagues went to YM Café, a social enterprise located at Wu Kwai Sha Youth Village, Ma On Shan, to learn how to make healthy moon cake. The many healthy moon cakes the volunteer prepared were then packed with love and warmth and distribute together with YMCA social workers to the disadvantage people and elderly living alone in one of the public housing estates a few days before the festival. Both the volunteer and elderly enjoyed their moments as the elderly shared their stories and wisdom as well as the laughter.
Milton hopes to continue our CSR initiative and spread the message across among our colleagues, friends, clients, and partners.
