back
The temperature will continue to fall drastically to around 7 degree Celsius in the coming few days, which is a threat to the weak elders. Therefore, The Salvation Army has been giving special care to the elders living alone or with their spouse recently. Volunteers have visited and presented warm clothing donated by the public to them to express care and love.
 
The Salvation Army Nam Tai Centre for Senior Citizens together with 20 voluntary students from City University of Hong Kong paid a visit to over 45 elders who are living alone or with their spouse in Nam Shan Estate and Tai Hang Tung Estate today (23 January). Warm caps, gloves, scarves and socks collected through The Salvation Army Recycling Programme were distributed. The elderly were reminded to contact the Army if they need any assistance.
 
The Salvation Army Senior Citizens Services
 
The Salvation Army district elderly community centres and neighbourhood elderly centres were located in Wong Tai Sin, Yaumatei, Mongkok, Shek Kip Mei, Tai Wo Hau, Tai Po and Aberdeen districts, providing services to meet the needs of the elderly.
 
The Salvation Army Recycling Programme
 
Since 1960s, The Salvation Army Recycling Programme has been promoting recycling in the community. Both organisational and individual donations are welcomed. Donated items are sorted and distributed. Some are directly sent to people in need, such as singleton elderly, street sleepers, ex-prisoners and CSSA recipients. Others are sold at The Salvation Army Family Stores. The net proceeds will go to The Salvation Army for use across its community programmes.
