Background

Dignity is a necessity, not a luxury, which is why we aim to maintain the highest standard of professionalism when serving those in need. The Donation Distribution Assistant will see to it that clients feel welcome and respected during their time at Crossroads.

What we have

Training will be provided, as will all the necessary equipment. Full-day volunteers are also more than welcome to stay for lunch!

What we do

Crossroads Foundation is a Hong Kong based, non-profit organisation serving global need. We believe that, in a broken world that sees too much suffering, we should do all we can to link those who are in need with those who can provide help. So we provide an intersection, literally a crossroads, to bring both together. • Global Distribution: This distributes Hong Kong's quality excess goods as needed, internationally and locally. It provides a crossroads between need and supply. • Global X-perience: This offers simulated x-periences of global need. It provides a crossroads between the lifestyles of the rich and poor. • Global Handicrafts: This sells fair trade goods from people in poverty. It is a crossroads between those needing a fair income and those with buying power. • Global Hand: This provides a 'matching' website for public- private partnerships. It is a crossroads between for-profit and non-profit organizations who wish to address global need.
