IVD event to recognize Hong Kong’s volunteers 
The Agency for Volunteer Service is a non-profit organization that promotes and develops sustained volunteer service. The idea is to create a civilized and caring community. United Nations set December 5 every year as International Volunteer Day. In response to the day, the Council holds its fifth ‘recognizing the city’s volunteers event’, which aims to promote the work of thousands of people from all walks of life, service groups and school volunteers. People are encouraged to donate food and other items to needy families, and to participate in community care in order to help 15,000 individuals and families in need. Disadvantaged families are also encouraged to participate in the volunteer service as a way to increase their self-esteem and strengthen the spirit of voluntary work, thus building a harmonious and caring society.
