Marquee Tent from Credit Suisse

When Hong Kong turns up the heat, it’s no picnic! Crossroads doesn’t stop shipping aid throughout the summer but it can be exhausting for corporate teams, community groups, and our regular volunteers to load a container in the hot summer sun. Even worse, when it rains. Since our loading area is exposed, valuable donated goods waiting to be sent to orphanages, hospitals, or other groups around the world, can be put at risk while they wait to be loaded.

Credit Suisse, longtime friends of Crossroads, saw the need for a proper shelter over our container-loading area. Having loaded containers as a corporate group, Credit Suisse knew firsthand that without keeping our volunteers safe and protected while loading containers, Crossroads couldn’t do the work we do!

They came alongside Crossroads to sponsor a large, sturdy marquee which now covers the area where our containers are loaded. The difference it’s made cannot be quantified. We no longer need to construct temporary rain shelters for the waiting goods, and our volunteers are now protected from Hong Kong’s sweltering summer sun.
