- Pack of playing cards (optional)
Optional donation items (to be handed in separately):
- Baby formula (any variety)
- Bags / boxes of baby nappies/diapers (newborn or medium size)
A collection point will be situated at the DBIS gates for students or parents to deliver during the following times:

For participating families, we would like to encourage you as parents to engage your children in the process as much as possible, e.g., in putting the package together, or in contributing their own pocket money to purchase some of the items. Please also direct your children to the Hands On, Hong Kong website (https://www.handsonhongkong.org), in order to raise awareness of people in our society who are less fortunate.
Your support with this initiative will be highly appreciated, particularly during these challenging times.
Thank you in advance for your support!
