The Group is a keen supporter of volunteering as an effective way to bring people from all walks of life together to support and connect with the community. Formed in 2003 by the Group, the SHKP Volunteer Team use their professional skills to provide home inspections and basic renovations for underprivileged families and elderly people who have been relocated due to redevelopment. To pass on the spirit of helping people, the volunteer team shares their skills and experience by publishing and distributing books to partners and volunteers in different communities. In addition, the volunteer team has built long-term partnerships with various local social organizations, and provides physical and emotional support to recipients through different kinds of long-term volunteer service programmes. To date, about 3,000 SHKP volunteers have together contributed about 80,000 hours of service each year.
During the pandemic, the Group has donated anti-pandemic items to numerous social welfare organizations to provide the underprivileged with immediate support and show their care. The volunteer team has also provided people affected by the pandemic with timely support, including expressing care by calling and video conferencing, and distributing goodie bags with festive food, anti-pandemic kits and stationery packs.
Through the Building Homes with Heart Caring Initiative, the Group expresses care to the underprivileged by organizing festival activities and distributing goodie bags, and provides immediate assistance to individuals or families in financial difficulty as a result of accidents or natural disasters.
