Disaster Relief Activities

Volunteer Support for Reconstruction of Areas Impacted by the Great East Japan Earthquake

After providing initial disaster relief donations in the wake of the Great East Japan Earthquake, MARUI GROUP UNION and the MARUI GROUP Welfare Committee have continued to make donations every summer since the disaster to fund the activities of the Iwate Prefecture volunteer organization Tono Magokoro Net and to provide scholarships to students from Iwate who are pursuing higher education. Furthermore, we began offering human support shortly after the earthquake by dispatching officers to the disaster-stricken areas to support reconstruction through the Japan Federation of Service and Distributive Workers Unions, which was the body overseeing these activities at the time. We have also conducted ongoing volunteer activities over the period from February 2012 to March 2020 by leveraging the attributes of MARUI GROUP's employee base, namely, its large number of women and employees that tend to be able to take part in such activities on weekdays and are skillful at providing customer service.
