The Hoshizaki Charity Club

The Hoshizaki Charity Club is a voluntary organization for Hoshizaki Group employees and executives in Japan, and collects amounts under 100 yen from the salaries and bonuses of members and donates them as funding to support organizations engaged in social contribution activities.
The club's support activities commenced in April 2012, and due to the support of many employees and others, as of the end of FY 2020, the club had around 6,600 members, which is a participation rate of around 75%.
Employees of each Group company serve as steering committee members on a rotating basis, selecting donation recipients, and in FY 2020, donations were made to 14 organizations offering support for children in need, persons with disabilities, and natural disaster recovery.
The club’s support activities provide opportunities to increase interest in voluntary social contribution activities.
