Support for Those Affected by the 2011 earthquake, tsunami, and Kumamoto Earthquakes
Since FY 2011, to support people affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake, we have made monetary donations, visited elementary schools, performed joint concerts with junior/senior high school students, donated school supplies, and sent gifts of stationery sets to incoming first-graders.
To support people affected by the Kumamoto Earthquakes, we have made monetary donations, donated stationery, visited elementary schools, and participated in restoration events.
Special Set Meals with Donations at Employee Dining Halls
On two days of each month since November 2011, we have been offering a special set meal called “We Are One” at the seven dining halls for employees located on our premises.
The price of the special set meal includes a 30-yen donation, which, along with a matching donation by Oriental Land Co., Ltd., goes toward presenting necessary supplies to elementary schools affected by earthquake disasters. As of April 2020, we have supported a total of 191 schools in Iwate, Miyagi and Fukushima Prefectures.
In December 2019, we donated learning materials, stationery and gym equipment to two elementary schools in Kuji, Iwate Prefecture. When donating gifts, we recruit volunteer employees in order to engage more employees in our support activities to present them in person.
Feedback from our employees included: “I am originally from Iwate Prefecture, but I haven’t been able to engage in volunteer activities in my home prefecture since I started working. This visit has given me the opportunity to see the smiles of children, teachers, and local shop owners, which was uplifting,” and “I received heartwarming words of appreciation and smiles. I felt honored to have been able to deliver gifts to children, the hope of restoration.”
The children said with smiles on their faces, “Thank you for remembering us. We will take on challenges without giving up, whatever difficulties we may face in the future.” A teacher commented, “Thank you for having bought the gifts at local shops. The children and school staff as we as the local community are all delighted.”
