Support to sports for people with disabilities
We have concluded a cooperative agreement with Japan Powerchair Football Association.
Through the support to Japan Powerchair Football Association, all employees are working to deepen their positive understanding of “support to persons with disabilities” and to provide “support for persons with disabilities” at the level of each employee. We will contribute to the further promotion and development of sports for people with disabilities.
We collect donations from employees once a year, and donate the same amount from the company to the matching fund. Launched in 2009, the foundation donates approximately ¥1 million to MEDECINS SANS FRONTIERES (Doctors Without Borders), UNICEF, Scholarship Foundation for Traffic Accident Orphans, and Japan Powerchair Football Association.
In addition, in the event of a large-scale disaster in Japan and overseas, we collect donations to support victims and provide support to the affected areas through our operations. Employees also take the initiative in volunteer activities, such as collecting used stamps, miss-writing postcards, and collecting used books.
