Building on 60 Years of Business Growth and Community Care
Appointment of Adriel Chan as Vice Chair
Mr. Adriel Chan, Executive Director of Hang Lung Group and Hang Lung Properties (the Companies), was appointed as Vice Chair of the Boards of the Companies on September 13, the exact day of Hang Lung Group’s 60th anniversary. In addition to his duties as Vice Chair, Adriel retains his current responsibilities, overseeing the Development and Design Department, Project Management Department and Cost & Controls Department, and remains Chair of the Sustainability Steering Committee of the Companies.
Adriel joined the Companies in 2010 and was appointed Executive Director of the Boards in 2016. He has led various projects including two mega-scale transformations, the Asset Enhancement Initiatives of Plaza 66 and Grand Gateway 66 in Shanghai (the former was completed in 2017 while the latter will be completed in the third quarter of 2020), Spring City 66 in Kunming, which opened just a year ago and Heartland 66 in Wuhan, which is due to open in the first half of 2021.
The First Ever Large-scale Community Services Event Jointly organized across Hong Kong and Mainland to Spread the Spirit of Love
While Hang Lung continues to expand its footprints, it strives to contribute to the communities and create value both for business and the community through community programs and volunteering activities. To mark the 60th anniversary of the establishment of Hang Lung Group this year, around 1,000 corporate volunteers from Hong Kong and nine Mainland cities joined forces on September 19 in the first ever large-scale community services event to provide support to some 4,500 underprivileged people in various local communities.
Facilitating Youth Learning
The blow dealt by COVID-19 in Hong Kong this year has left many families facing great financial difficulty. Underprivileged students in particular have faced challenges in their daily lives and their studies, with a lack of online resources severely impeding their learning progress. Taking this opportunity to serve, the Hang Lung As One Volunteer Team teamed up with St James’ Settlement and Principal Chan Free Tutorial World to prepare “Welcome Back to School Kits” for 150 students. These pupils can now start the new school year healthily and happily with new gadgets and other necessities, without their families being burdened financially.
Our Hong Kong volunteers made pressed flower rulers and mosaic pen holders, which came with other learning items, including data SIM cards, parent-child training tools, school bags, stationery, water bottles, kids’ masks, hand sanitizers and so on, in “Welcome Back to School Kits” for students most affected by the pandemic.
The “Welcome Back to School Kit” has not only relieved us of the need to buy study items, but it has also boosted my child’s morale and motivation to work harder in the forthcoming year.
A Primary 3 Student
During the outbreak, I have to complete my assignments online. But due to the unstable internet connectivity, it has been such a painful process. I’m so happy to receive my “Welcome Back to School Kit” and I’m really looking forward to a fruitful year ahead!
In addition to paying for a professional cleaning agency to sanitize three schools for children of migrant and agricultural workers, Palace 66 sponsored table tennis tables as well as some anti-epidemic materials. A total of 1,600 students is benefited. Forum 66, meanwhile, donated eight infra-red temperature sensors to Liaoning University, and gave out health protection kits to university students with financial difficulties.
Center 66 provided gift packs with disease prevention tips and materials to around 1,100 teachers and students at a school for children of migrant and agriculture workers, and paid professional agents for sanitizing school buildings. Volunteers from Center 66 also worked with student representatives to clean desks and chairs.
Olympia 66 prepared and distributed health protection kits for 150 students. An online health talk was also organized to enhance students’ knowledge about epidemic prevention.
In partnership with Wuhan Union Hospital and its tenant EYAS International Education Group, Heartland 66 delivered online health talks and English lessons for students at a remote rural school, enabling them to gain a sense of online learning experience. Volunteers also gave out health protection kits and some other learning materials as encouragement to students.
Caring for the Elderly’s Health
Not only did Spring City 66 prepare 500 health protection kits for the elderly and for underprivileged students, but it also sent volunteers to help the elderly clean their homes. Students were also given stationery sets, and were invited to a flower arrangement session with volunteers for a day of relaxation.
Showing Love and Care amid the Pandemic
Volunteers from Plaza 66 and Grand Gateway 66 organized tours of museums and health exhibitions, with the aim of raising beneficiaries’ disease prevention awareness. Hand-made gifts were also handed out as a caring gesture.
Riverside 66 called on almost 100 volunteers, consisting of its staff and their families as well as tenants and public sector workers, to run a donation campaign that benefited nearly 200 needy people. By taking part in a fitness walking event, the volunteers walked a cumulative total of 328,260 steps to redeem RMB ¥32,826 worth of supplies for the beneficiaries to counter the epidemic.
Parc 66 arranged for 150 children of migrant workers and underprivileged families to attend a workshop on the upcycling of used coffee grounds, hosted by its tenant Starbucks. The mall also gave out health protection packs to needy families in the community.
Volunteers from Westlake 66 went to a special education center and spent a cheerful weekend with the students there, distributing disease prevention materials and playing games together.
