Hongqiao Community in SIP’s Weiting Sub-district launched the “Rainbow Volunteers” service program at a local square on July 25, when seven volunteer teams composed of medical workers, bank staff, telecommunications professionals and other members, each marked by one of the seven rainbow colors, made their debut and offered volunteer services.
The event started with a list of art performances staged by a local amateur art troupe and a group of kids, followed by the program’s launching ceremony where the volunteer teams announced to provide a variety of services for such purposes as improving local environment, showing care and love for elderlies and youngsters and helping tighten the ties between neighbors.
After that, the volunteers provided free haircut and medical services to over 100 participating residents, imparted knowledge on 5G network and caution against financial swindles to them, and taught a number of children and their parents to make garbage enzymes using kitchen waste.
The volunteer teams also recruited new members, attracting 49 residents who signed up on site to join the volunteer service program.
