The center organizes various events such as charity bazaars and concerts to collect money for the program. With the money, they have offered over 700 barrels along with thousands of gloves and hats to the needy children in West China.
Wu Jiayi, another overseas returnee and a volunteer at Mother Tang Charity Center, received the "Charity Star" award for her over 500 hours of volunteer services each year.
