Social Contribution Activities
The SINANEN HOLDINGS Group wants the children who will lead the next generation to experience the joy of working and has created a Job Coloring Book unique to a Group that has diverse concerns.
The Itsumo Arigato (Thank You) Essay Competition was started in 2007 when SINANEN HOLDINGS celebrated its 80th anniversary as a way to give back to everyone who has supported us.
2020 marked the 14th time for the competition to be held.
We took entries from elementary school students nationwide, asking them to "write about your feelings of gratitude that you find difficult to say face to face."
Every year, we receive more than 30,000 entries, and the cumulative total has come to over 300,000.
The Group values bonds between people.
This competition spreads the feelings of gratitude that create those bonds and helps promote warm feelings and the healthy growth of children.
Since 2019, we have participated in the interactive events for families held every spring and summer by The Mainichi Newspapers Co., Ltd.
Various companies and non-profits set up booths and provide easy-to-understand commemorative souvenirs and hands-on experiences to elementary school students.
In 2020, with the cooperation of group company Sinanen Zeomic Co., Ltd., we helped children learn about everyday antibacterial actions together with characters called "Antibacterial Squadron Metallic Zeo."
As part of career education for junior and senior high school students to learn what it means to work, we perform school visits and hold workshops.
In fiscal 2020, we visited Ebara Hiratsuka Gakuen, a public school in Shinagawa-ku, in November 2020 and provided a lecture, and then in January 2021, we held an online workshop for Den-en Chofu Gakuen Junior & Senior High School.
Through this initiative, the Group will continue to support the healthy growth of local children who will lead the next generation.
We participate as a sponsor in the IR Presentation Contest for University Students organized by the Union of Student Investment Clubs (USIC).
We believe that this initiative will not only allow students to experience the importance of PR activities for investors at listed companies but also lead to opportunities for us to discover new issues with our PR and IR activities and be stimulated through interaction with students.
We will continue to actively engage in support activities that lead to higher financial literacy among the younger generation.
We participate in the activities of non-profit KIDS EARTH FUND, which provides economic assistance and donates books, art materials, medicines, and more to children who have been emotionally scarred by illness, conflict, disaster, etc.
We support these activities by using the children's drawings submitted to the fund in our corporate calendars and leasing the artwork as well as by participating in workshops.
We participate in the activities of Shizensaibai Party, which promotes agriculture-welfare collaboration in the aim of supporting the employment of persons with disabilities through agriculture.
In fiscal 2020, together with employees of Saitamafukko Co., Ltd., which is engaged in agriculture-welfare collaboration in Kumagaya City, Saitama, we harvested rice in a section of a Koshihikari rice paddy that we contract out.
The harvested rice was donated to children's cafeterias in Shinagawa-ku, Minato-ku, and Kumagaya City with which we have ties.
Group company MELIFE-WEST Co., Ltd. organizes a soccer tournament for elementary school teams (U-10) in Ishikawa.
The number of teams increases year after year, and around 400 elementary school students from inside and outside the prefecture participate.
We will continue to contribute to children's futures and local communities through sports.
Group company Takara Building Maintenance Co., Ltd. has been doing a community clean-up walk to pick up trash around the head office since 2010.
As cleaning professionals in charge of facility cleaning and building maintenance, we will continue to contribute to beautification of the community.
Group company SINANEN CO., LTD. has been promoting the Akari-no-Mori Project since fiscal 2020.
We collaborate with municipalities and non-profit organizations on tree planting and forest protection activities in the aim of creating bountiful forests and preventing global warming. The funds come from sales of SINANEN Akari-no-Mori Denki, a plan using practically 100% renewable energy for electric power.
