Unattended “Love and Care Stations”

To thank the “silent heroes” of the pandemic – the hardworking individuals who deliver food, disinfect buildings and streets and many other service staff – several Swire Properties malls in the Chinese mainland launched “Unattended Love and Care Station” campaigns in early 2020. In Shanghai, over 30 brands from HKRI Taikoo Hui offered free products at a special unmanned station in the corridor of the MetroLink as gifts for service personnel. Elsewhere in the Chinese mainland, similar donation stations were set up at INDIGO, Taikoo Li Sanlitun and Taikoo Hui to honour these heroes.

Thanking Frontline Workers

Taikoo Li Sanlitun held a range of activities in the run-up to International Labour Day, 1 May, to honour frontline workers fighting the COVID-19 pandemic. On 30 April, Taikoo Li Sanlitun gave medical supplies and gifts to a pandemic response taskforce at the Sanlitun Street Office and the Office’s media centre. Our employees at the complex reached out several times to express their heartfelt gratitude and appreciation for the taskforce’s dedication and unwavering efforts to contain the unprecedented health crisis.

In Hong Kong, we delivered thank you cards signed by our Community Ambassadors along with 5,900 soup packs to doctors, nurses and staff at Pamela Youde Nethersole Eastern Hospital to send medical workers a simple message: “we are all in this together”.

Assisting the Zubin Foundation initiative

Cityplaza hosted a group of 30 volunteers from The Zubin Foundation, a charity dedicated to providing opportunities to and reducing the suffering of Hong Kong’s marginalised ethnic minority communities – many of whom had lost their jobs during the pandemic. The volunteers packed care boxes full of food, face masks and children’s craft kits. Cityplaza helped by providing office space, packing volunteers and logistics support.

Together, the volunteers:

  • Packed and delivered care boxes to 730 families
  • Enrolled 46 drivers dropped off boxes to 488 pick-up locations
  • Extended aid to more than 3,400 individuals, including 1,270 children

Matching Donations to Alleviate Hardship

To support less fortunate members of our communities, Swire Properties’ Community Ambassador team ran a number of donation matching programmes throughout 2020 that engaged the community to contribute monetary donations as well as donations of food and other goods. These included:

  • The “e-Buddy” matching donation scheme which raised over HK$57,000 to purchase laptops and provide learning support to 19 students identified by our NGO partner, Society for Community Organization;
  • The “A Spoonful of Love” campaign, where our Community Ambassadors partnered with EAST Hong Kong to prepare and sell nourishing soup packs to our staff members – every purchase was matched by a donation from Swire Properties, with a total of 2,216 soup packs sent to low-income families;
  • “Noodles for Love”, which sold charity noodle packs for HK$50. Each purchase was matched by a donation by the Swire Trust to provide people in need with noodles and a SEWomen reusable mask; and
  • “Rice Dumplings for Sharing”, in which our Community Ambassadors and The Refinery Club at Taikoo Place teamed up to raise money and shared more than 250 rice dumplings with the Direction Association for the Handicapped during the Dragon Boat Festival.
