About the App

Here's how it works:

  1. Photograph items
    you want to offer to people in need using the GoodCity app (what kinds of items?)
  2. Trained volunteers review items
    so you instantly know which can help (how do reviewers decide?)
  3. You choose a transport option
    for the accepted items (what are the transport options?).

Then…

  1. A huge volunteer labor force receives and processes
    the items at Crossroads' Tuen Mun warehouse
  2. Social workers help their clients
    request items. Charities make requests too (how are requests for goods made?)
  3. Items are received by those in need
    and a variety of good causes (who is helped?).
