UPS Paints the Beidouxing Children Rehabilitation Centre 

On March 13th, UPS had their volunteering activity together for the first time. 15 UPS volunteers took a trip to the Beidouxing Children Rehabilitation Center located in Wen Jiang to further progress the campus painting work. These 15 white-collars finished the hall on the 1st floor and the outside wall of the 3rd floor. It has to be mentioned that the especially crumbly surface of the 3rd floor wall added to the difficulty of work for 15 volunteers from the office. Though it was tiring to finish the task, the unusual experience brought unusual fun to the volunteers!


B&Q and NIPPON team up to get HandsON at the Beidouxing autistic children school
On 15th May, about 26 volunteers from B&Q and NIPPON started to re-paint the campus for Wenjiang Beidouxing Autistic Children Rehab Center. Nippon donated lots of colorful paints and painting rollers, B&Q donated more than 10 packages of putty. They not only help HOC on all project needed materials, they also encouraged their staff to take action themselves to make a change. All the efforts of that day bought a new and fresh look to parts of the campus and solid bases for walls in classrooms. HandsOn Chengdu and Beidouxing Center are very grateful for the sponsorship by B&Q and NIPPON
