The Salvation Army 'Relove' Campaign
Artistes & DJs Donate to Promote Charity Eco-shopping
back
The Salvation Army Recycling Programme cooperates with a group of artistes and DJs to launch the ‘Relove’ Campaign. Jim Yan, Donald, Yellow, Elanne Kwong, Evelyn Choi, Maria Tang and Bianca Wu donate more than 500 items including clothes, shoes, bags and watches for charity sale and promotion of eco-shopping. The proceeds will go to the Army’s community care services. 
 
A kick-off ceremony will be held at Tin Hau Family Store on 21 October. Jim Yan, Donald and Elanne Kwong will play the role of store manager to introduce the products and share how to help people in need by eco-shopping. They will take photos with the customers on that day. They said they are glad to take part in the ‘Relove’ Campaign to donate unused but usable items for charity sale, helping people in need and reducing community waste at the same time.
 
The Salvation Army Recycling Programme collects new and second-hand products in the community. After sorting, suitable items are transferred to people in need referred by social workers. Other items are sold at Family Stores to raise funds for The Salvation Army community care services. From April 2016 to March 2017, the sales volume of recycled clothing at The Salvation Army was 732,000 pieces, which means 2,000 pieces of clothing were sold on average per day, finding new owners for unused items.
