Ten thousand Communist Party of China (CPC) members who work at the China Minmetals Group donate on May 31 1,500,000 yuan (US$231,374) at the launch ceremony of this year's Love Parcel Project in Beijing.
The Inner Mongolia Chamber of Commerce in Beijing, Beijing University of Technology and China Post Group also made donations.
Seventy volunteers from seven universities in Beijing promised during the ceremony to help children in poverty-stricken areas and revolutionary bases.
President of the China Foundation for Poverty Alleviation Duan Yingbi and Secretary-General of Beijing Municipal Party Committee Qin Gang preside at the ceremony.
The Love Parcel Project initiated by the China Foundation for Poverty Alleviation on April 26, 2009, aims to help pupils in poverty-stricken areas, revolutionary bases and disaster-hit regions by sending them parcels containing items they need such as stationery and daily necessities.
