Used Clothing Collection Campaign sets another record
The Used Clothing Collection Campaign 2011, one of the "Engaging the Community" initiatives of the Force and a joint venture with The Salvation Army, has collected another record-breaking 112 586 kilograms of clothing and used items from 21 collection points.
A Handing-over Ceremony was held at Police Headquarters on March 1 with Assistant Commissioner (Personnel) Ng Tsui Fung-ying and Lieut-Colonel Samuel Pho, Officer Commanding of The Salvation Army, Hong Kong and Macau Command, officiating. The ceremony also served as recognition of the support for the campaign by various units, police staff associations, Junior Police Officers' Married Quarters Residents' Associations, police clubs and management companies.
Speaking at the ceremony, Mrs Ng greatly appreciated the efforts by Force members, their families and those involved in the annual collection campaign, and looked forward to their continued support. "The campaign, on one hand, promotes environmental protection, and on the other hand, fosters the spirit of 'One Force, One Caring Culture' so that we may warm the hearts of the needy," she noted.
Expressing gratitude to the Force and Force members, Lieut-Colonel Pho and Envoy Simon Wong of The Salvation Army, presented souvenirs to representatives of the participating units for their contributions to the collection campaign.
Now that the Used Clothing Collection Campaign for 2012 has started, Force members are urged to send their used clothing items to the collection points set up at Police Headquarters, New Territories South Regional Headquarters, Police Officers' Club, Police Sports and Recreation Club, and Police Married Quarters in Police College, Old Bailey Street, Wong Tai Sin, Yau Mei Court, Ko Cheung Court, West Kowloon, Lai King, Tsing Yi, Kwai Fuk Court, Kwai Yung Court, Yuen Long, Sheung Shui and Tuen Mun Wu Hong.
