2019 – Snapshot of Volunteer Services of Nestlé Hong Kong
The Nestlé Hong Kong volunteer team is committed to giving back to society in different ways and actively responding to the needs in society. In 2019, we organized several volunteer activities, including:
To celebrate family reunion in the Mid-Autumn Festival, Nestlé Hong Kong and St. James' Settlement joined hands to organize “Mid-Autumn Festival Celebration with Low-Income Families” in September and gathered colleagues to enjoy dinner with 150 under-privileged families and elderlies, as well as making simplified version of mooncakes and sharing the lively and joyful festival atmosphere.
In October, Nestlé Hong Kong and Feeding Hong Kong jointly organized volunteer service “Food Sorting and Packing” in order to respond to food waste and poverty in Hong Kong while allowing colleagues to recognize the problems of food waste and poverty. Colleagues also supported in sorting and packaging of the food collected for donating to beneficiaries through Feeding Hong Kong’s partner network.
To celebrate the Winter Solstice, one of the most important festivals in Chinese culture, Nestlé Hong Kong partnered with Tung Wah Group of Hospitals to organize “Community Care for Winter Solstice” luncheon in December in which colleagues and 50 elderlies gathered for lunch and played simple games, delivering care and joy from the Nestlé family to the participants.
Besides, our volunteers attended volunteering activity outside Hong Kong for the very first time and participated in “Nestlé Clean Beach” event organized by our group in the beach of Dongguan City, making practical move to help fulfill Nestlé's commitment to achieve 100% recyclable or reusable packaging materials by 2025.
