Based in DB, the Crayon Society is a charity organisation founded by the ‘Latin Dragons’ Dragon Boat team.
They collect crayons to recycle them and resell back to the community; this helps raise funds for the Duchess of Kent hospital/ society for the relief of disabled children in Pok Fu Lam.
They work with a few schools/ companies in DB, asking for donations of old broken crayons. This morning, the kids of the Latin dragons wore the uniform and set up a collection point at DBIS (both primary and kindergarten). These collection points will be there for another week.
There are also other collection points in DB: Dymocks, Bookazine, DMPS and Woodentots. So, don’t wait… take all your old crayons and donate them to the Crayon Society … you’ll make some children happy!
