Home Kong Kitchen collects donations of food, clothing, blankets and other gifts throughout the week, which we deliver to ImpactHK every Friday! Depending on quantity, we will either collect your donation from your home or arrange to meet you at a convenient location close to your workplace or residence!
We have run a couple of special collections for Impact: our Christmas Gift Socks campaign and Lunar New Year Food Drive. The latter shattered all our previous records and was our largest food drive to date! We even had to hire a Gogo van because it wouldn’t fit in my sister’s massive car!
Home Kong Kitchen loves ImpactHK‘s #KindnessMatters message and Spirit of Hong Kong. They neither know our names nor our faces, as we’re always fully masked, like strange hybrids of Mary Berry and Zorro. 🤣 But it always makes us happy knowing we are able to support their inspirational work for the homeless in our own humble way.
Here’s a taste of why:
ImpactHK is a registered charity that provides Hong Kong’s homeless with friendship, food, shelter, education and employment opportunities. The charity started with the simple aim of doing one act of kindness per month for the homeless. It has evolved into a powerful humanitarian movement with the opportunity to make a positive impact on the plight of the homeless in Hong Kong!
We also like that they keep a piano on the street right outside their homeless hangout and invite passers-by to play it. So we can unload bags, then spend 10 minutes tinkering the ivories before dashing to our next drop-off!
