For the fifth year in a row, the Dongguan community has come together at Shooters Restaurant and Bar for the annual Back to School BBQ. The day long gathering is a full day of food, drinks and fun highlighted by a bake sale and bingo games to raise money for Treasures of Hope for donation to underprivileged Chinese youth and a strong start to their new year of studies. This year, the event raised RMB 38,000 for the cause. Students from local international school QSI, accompanied by TOH volunteers, dropped off book bags and supplies to Project Eden, a long running charity that fights to bring students above the poverty line. Books and school supplies were also sent to Yunnan Province to be used at HANDA leprosy village called Maowangdong.
