Police’s In-kind Donations to The Salvation Army
back
The Salvation Army has been receiving tremendous support from companies and organisations over the years. Clothing donation campaigns are organised to help raise in-kind donations for The Salvation Army Recycling Programme. The Hong Kong Police Force is one of the key partners who has held collection campaigns to help the Army to serve the needy. In 2014, a total of 110,010 kg in-kind donations were collected in the police quarters. It is the 12th consecutive collection campaign initiated by the Police.
 
To show our appreciation to the individual police units and the property management companies, The Salvation Army and the Police Force jointly organised a hand-over cum recognition ceremony at the Police Headquarters on 5 March 2015. 
 
At the ceremony, Major On Dieu-quang, General Secretary of The Salvation Army Hong Kong and Macau Command said, “Thank you very much for the continuous support of the Hong Kong Police Force. The partnership enables The Salvation Army to provide material assistance to the homeless, grassroots families and ex-prisoners, and raise funds for our community care programmes.”
 
The in-kind donations collected will be transferred to the needy or sold at the Salvation Army Family Stores to raise funds for our community care programmes.
