Putuo names 100 volunteer activity venues

May 24, 2017 |

The Putuo District government selected 100 sites for volunteer activities and gave each of them a logo plate in a publicity event at M50 Innovation Park last week.

The move is part of Shanghai’s effort to establish 10,000 such sites by the end of 2020. All the sites are marked by a uniform logo. They include the addresses of companies, social organizations, community service centers and neighborhoods.

So far, 259 social welfare sites have been established across Shanghai with 400 more still on the waiting list and more than 11,000 individuals have received certificates to keep a record of their volunteer services.
