CAL Group Brings New Year Cuisine to Needy Families

CAL Group Brings New Year Cuisine to Needy Families

At this time of year, Chinese people everywhere are preparing to celebrate
the coming New Year holiday with feasts and festivities. To care for those
who need help and support, the CAL Group has cooperated with the Red Cross
Society of the Republic of China to organize a special “Making Dreams Come
True” program distributing special New Year’s meals to needy families in
Taiwan.

On January 19, 2011, Mandarin Airlines Chairman Harris Wang personally led
a group of China Airlines and Mandarin Airlines flight attendants and Red
Cross volunteers who visited Red Cross offices and volunteer centers around
the island bringing gift boxes containing special New Year’s meals and
daily necessities. More than 900 needy families received the gift boxes.

The CAL Group has a long history of devoting efforts toward charitable
works. The CAL Group began cooperating with the Red Cross Society in 2009,
with China Airlines donating funds earned from in-flight duty free sales
and Mandarin Airlines donating funds raised from special donation envelopes
on its aircraft. Within just one year, China Airlines and Mandarin Airlines
successfully raised more than NT$5 million for the Red Cross. On the heels
of this success, the CAL Group began planning for additional efforts
including job training for the unemployed and distributing New Year’s meals
to needy families.

The “Making Dreams Come True” program shows the CAL Group is undertaking
substantial action to support the Red Cross Society’s charitable efforts.
The meal boxes feature hearty cuisine such as Sticky Rice with Dried
Scallop, Steamed Assorted Meats in Chinese Casserole, Grilled Chicken, Stem
Meat Balls with Dried Scallop, “State Banquet Fish” and sweet sticky rice,
a staple of Chinese New Year meals. By sending these delicious meals, the
CAL Group wishes all families luck and prosperity in the coming year.

As a member of the global village, the CAL Group actively participates in
charitable works serving the community. By stepping ahead, CAL seeks to
organize more charitable activities and care for our society. The CAL Group
will continue actively taking part in social welfare and charitable
activities, capitalizing on its resources to carry out its social
responsibilities.
