Taipei Sheltered Workshop Gift Boxes Await Generous Customers

Gift BoxesChinese New Year gift boxes by Taipei Sheltered Workshop have been available for sale since 2018. More than 1,200 boxes have been sold. Today, the workshop received an order from the Chiayi area in the hillsides of Alishan. The disabled workers at the workshop are very excited about it. The orders coming from their generous customers thousands of miles away encouraged them to increase their annual target to 2,500 boxes.


This year, the Taipei City Government is offering a unique type of gift box created by Taipei Sheltered Workshop for Chinese New Year. The gift box contains products made by different sheltered workshops including ABRAZO, Gofe, Easy Coffee, Victory kitchen, and others. In the past, consumers have had trouble deciding which workshop they should buy from. This year, the gift box includes products made by all the workshops. Purchasing a single gift box already supports many sheltered workshops at once! Consumers no longer have to hesitate about which workshop to buy from.


For the upcoming holiday, the workshops are also offering two types of gift boxes, including a smaller gift box for Chinese New Year celebrations and a larger gift box with a good fortune blessing. The painting on the packages were also made by disabled workers. The gift boxes are completely created by disabled workers, both inside and out, making them suitable as gifts or for personal use.


Director Yeh Hsiu-shan of the Taipei City Foreign and Disabled Office (FDO) remarked that the two types of gift boxes not only offer specially selected products, but also provide the most valued goods with high CP ratio for consumers without raising concerns about its cost. For the agency, much effort is required to achieve the sales target of 2,500 boxes. Today, the orders from the Alishan hillside have greatly encouraged our disabled workers. They are surprised that what they made reaches so far away, and they contribute more to their work.


No matter whether they are for personal, office, school, or enterprise use, those interested in ordering the gift boxes can call (02-23381600, ext. 5214~5216) to contact customer service.
