It is mainly used for activity funds. This activity fund corresponds to the "activity expenses of the support group". Although it is a non-profit volunteer organization, efforts to solve problems faced by countries and regions naturally require "activity costs," "personnel costs," and "public relations." Basically, it is used for "people and areas with suffering". One example is our efforts to deliver food, blankets, daily necessities, etc. to disaster victims or those in need. In addition, we will procure goods at the necessary timing, such as storage fees, delivery fees, gasoline costs, disasters, hygiene, etc. We will use donations carefully.
We are looking for companies and volunteers who can cooperate.
Cost-saving By providing food, you can reduce food loss and consume disposal costs, and also contribute to the local community and improve your company's image.
Business effects and corporate efforts to address local issues create new opportunities. Donations are also tax deductible.
A warehouse (food storage space) is essential for our business, so please provide us with space.
