KCRC donates $60,000 to International Social Service Hong Kong Branch
 
The Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation (KCRC) today presented a cheque of HK$60,000, which was raised from the KCR East Rail Moon Cake Redemption Programme, to the International Social Service Hong Kong Branch. The funds will be used to develop social services for new arrivals to Hong Kong.
Mr Anthony Yan, General Manager – East Rail Operations (Acting), said at the cheque presentation ceremony that KCRC has a long history of helping the less fortunate in society. He also mentioned that the KCR East Rail Moon Cake Redemption Programme was well received by passengers and staff, and that the Corporation will continue to contribute to the community.
The KCR East Rail Moon Cake Redemption Programme was launched in September during the Mid-Autumn Festival. To participate in the programme, passengers were required to take two trips on East Rail; they would then become eligible to purchase a box of KCR East Rail Moon Cakes at a discounted price.
