Started with the idea of “Sharing of LOVE and BLESSINGS” on Easter in 2014, Hong Yip and other co-organisers are devoted to spreading love and care through a box – “Peace Box” to connect the needs in the community. There were nearly 80,000 boxes donated in the past 10 years given with commodities, dried food toys, stationery and etc., This year, over 10,000 peace boxes have been donated to grassroots families and people in need.
Mr. Alkin Kwong, Chairman and Chief Executive of Hong Yip, said, "During the three-year epidemic in Hong Kong, the journey of receiving and giving through the Peace Box Campaign still continued to engage the community, aiming to encourage compassionate residents, tenants and citizens to share gifts in Easter and achieving the theme for GROW - Life Grows Through Action this year."
Hong Yip has been encouraging young people to join the "Young Upward Mobility Mentorship Program". On 21 April 2023, Hong Yip arranged a visit for young trainees, led by mentors to spread our love and care for residents in squatter huts as well as to distribute peace boxes to them.
Peace Box Campaign is co-organised by Hong Yip Service Co Ltd, Saddleback Church Hong Kong, Hong Kong Church Network for the Poor, Hong Kong Gospel Festival Limited, SCOPE of City University of Hong Kong, YWCA, Evangelical Lutheran Church Social Service – Hong Kong and Hong Kong World Vision with the support of Hung Fook Tong and the social enterprise Agent of Change.
