Swire Properties Community Ambassador Launches Charity Book Drive

Swire Properties Community Ambassador is celebrating its tenth anniversary of community service this year. To commemorate this event, a charity bazaar entitled “Love’s Team”, co-organised with five local non-profit organisations, will be held in early December at TaiKoo Place. Swire Properties will run a three-month book drive, starting from today, to collect books for the charity bazaar. Special drop boxes will be placed in various residential and commercial properties to collect the books.

From now until 31 August 2011, Swire Properties invites its stakeholders (including residents of 11 residential developments, tenants from 19 commercial properties and employees of all Swire companies and its subsidiaries) to donate new or second-hand books for the bazaar. These books, together with a variety of other merchandise donated by some of its business partners and Swire companies, will be sold at the bazaar.

The Swire Group Charitable Trust has pledged to match funds raised in the charity bazaar. All proceeds will be donated to Arts with the Disabled Association HK, The Boys’ & Girls’ Clubs Association of HK, SAHK, St. James’ Settlement and WWF-Hong Kong.

The book collection period and collection points are listed as follows:
