Social Contribution Activities with Customers

Operating companies in the Group including Daimaru Matsuzakaya Department Stores and Parco are engaged in social contribution activities with customers in collaboration with NPOs and external institutions.

Pink Ribbon Campaign

Daimaru, Matsuzakaya, Parco, and JFR Card are involved in the Pink Ribbon Campaign, an awareness campaign to promote the early diagnosis, detection, and treatment of breast cancer.
In order to support NPOs in each area that promote awareness-raising activities for breast cancer examinations, mainly in Pink Ribbon Month (October), Daimaru and Matsuzakaya stores conduct awareness-raising activities through the distribution of original leaflets, crowdfund online, and raise funds in physical stores. The funds thus raised are donated along with a portion of the proceeds from the sale of original pins.

Daimaru and Matsuzakaya stores regularly conduct the Blue Clover Campaigns to provide correct knowledge about increasingly prevalent prostate cancer and to promote “early detection and appropriate treatment.” And they conduct awareness-raising activities through the distribution of original leaflets.
In order to support the Prostate Cancer Education Council in Japan, they crowdfund online and raise funds in physical stores. The funds thus raised are donated along with a portion of the proceeds from the sale of original pins.

Table for Two

In support for the activities of TABLE FOR TWO International (TFT), a certified NPO that helps feed children in developing countries, Daimaru and Matsuzakaya stores hold TABLE FOR TWO Fair twice a year. During the Fair, charity menu items are sold at participating restaurants in each store, and a portion of the proceeds from their sale is donated. Funds are also raised online and in physical stores.
From May 11 to June 7, 2022, we also held an online popularity contest for TFT charity menu items and donated 20 yen per vote.

Support for Affected Areas

The Group donates money to support reconstruction of the areas affected by natural disasters, which are becoming larger in scale recently. We thought we need to formulate new donation guidelines to enable prompt and fair donations in emergencies caused by unexpected disasters. After a lot of discussions at the Group Management Meetings and the Board of Directors meetings, we formulated “The Group Donation Guidelines” in October 2018. The guidelines enable prompt donations to the affected areas.
Daimaru Matsuzakaya Department Stores raises money in each store. In addition we support the affected areas through our core department store business, for example, by actively selling the local products of the affected areas.
