● Dedicated to supporting those in need in this challenging time, WeWork join hands with its member Dory Tech on the HK2gether “Combat Virus Resources Sharing” initiative (Phase 2)

● With a shared belief in creating impact in the Hong Kong community, WeWork supports the program by leveraging its collaborative space network as resources collection points for maximized outreach

 

WeWork, the world’s leading co-working and space-as-service platform, is committed to bringing people and the WeWork community together to making a difference in the battle against COVID-19. Leveraging its space network across major districts in Hong Kong, WeWork participates in its member Dory Tech “HK2gether Combat Virus Resources Sharing” initiative (Phase 2) as one of the partnering organizations to maximize the impact of the campaign. Starting from April 25, 2020 till May 17, 2020, WeWork will dedicate its four locations as collection points of supplies for people in need to fight against COVID-19 and volunteer to organize and pack the supplies.

 

“While WeWork’s top priority is the safety and health of its employees and members, in addition to implementing stringent precautionary measures on-site in WeWork locations around the world, WeWork is committed to connecting our members together to support those in need during the challenging times,” said Kay Kam, Community Director, WeWork Hong Kong and Taiwan. “We’re delighted to collaborate with our member Dory Tech to take a step forward in contributing to the community. Building on the success of the first phase of the campaign, we look forward to bringing even greater impact to those in need.”

 

Starting from April 25 till May 17, 2020, the HK2gether initiative will call for public donation of anti-epidemic resources to over 20 partnering NGOs with the majority of them as members of the Hong Kong Council of Social Service (HKCSS). The public are encouraged to donate supplies such as medical masks, hand sanitizers and disinfecting wet wipes at over 50 collection points across Hong Kong. WeWork members can donate supplies at four designated WeWork locations, including WeWork Tower 535, WeWork LKF Tower, WeWork YF Life Tower and WeWork Two Harbour Square.

 

Dory Tech and its volunteers will be responsible for performing basic quality check and record of quantity of the collected resources. Through Dory Tech’s Me2You application, a social platform that makes sharing idle resources easy and meaningful, partnering NGOs can select and pick up resources conveniently and distribute to people in need, such as elderly living alone, patients with chronic illness and homeless people.
