As a result, the Company donated 30,000 yen of learning support to every 1,606 high school students.
The meeting of the Board of Directors on 21 December approved to hold the project the second time as the Company originally planned and an additional 50 million yen to the NPO was allocated to the emergency assistance called "We Support you on New Year!
