Deputy Mayor Hsiao today (August 13) attended the press meeting for Children Are Us Foundation Moon Cakes - Providing Jobs for Kids in Need. He called it a blessing from the post office to round out the Mid Autumn Festival and ordered 30 packs of moon cakes. He also called for assistance from all sectors of society in purchasing and providing special children with jobs and income.
At the press meeting today, Deputy Mayor Hsiao, Chair Chiang of the Foundation, Manager Chen from Taichung District Operation Center of Chunghwa Post Co. Ltd., and Manager Yao from Fengyuan District Operation Center of Chunghwa Post Co. Ltd. joined together with the children to make moon cakes and experienced some hard work during the baking process. Teacher Hsiao displayed ambidextrous calligraphy skills.
According to Deputy Mayor Hsiao, moon cake packs this year are healthy and tasty. Master Hsiao’s calligraphy work is featured on the gift box. The combination of art and charity come together in an act of goodwill by purchasing the gift packs.
Chair Chiang of the Foundation suggested the economic slow down this year has influenced donations to charitable organizations, and rising material prices may impact on sales of moon cakes. However, the Foundation has paid closer attention to quality of moon cakes and gift box wrapping to promote its product competitively with the goal of continuing training for special children.
