Fans collection drive 2015

Every year, Crossroads sends out many shipments of goods to people who are suffering. We also distribute a large quantity of donated goods to people right here in Hong Kong who need help. Whether overseas or local, people in poverty often lack the most basic necessities, from daily needs such as cutlery and bed sheets, to things that an office or school needs to function, like stationery or computer equipment. Run a campaign with your family and friends to collect goods that will help a world in need!

Why: With many months of sweltering heat, the Hong Kong climate can be more than uncomfortable. Fortunately, for most of us we can find respite with air conditioning units in both our offices and at home. It is a luxury we can take for granted, as for those struggling in Hong Kong, some people cannot afford even a basic fan. The gift of a fan will provide much needed relief in the summer heat!

Who: These fans will serve people within Hong Kong.

The fans will go to:

  • individuals/families. People are referred to us daily by the Social Welfare Department of the HKSAR, as well as by charities.
  • non-profit organisations registered in the HKSAR.

What: Free-standing fans in good condition.

How: Collect fans from friends, family and people you know. When you are ready to deliver the fans, please contact our Incoming Goods Department to arrange a donation. Tel: 2272 9345 or email donategoods@crossroads.org.hk

Cost: Alternatively, you can also donate $400 and we will purchase one on your behalf.
