Community activities (community collaboration, etc.)

As part of its efforts to promote DIY, DCM holds a number of DIY classes and other events that allow people to experience the fun of DIY and feel more familiar with it. DCM also actively participates in local events and festivals and in volunteer cleanup activities around stores. Furthermore, DCM is engaged in activities that emphasize ties with local customers, such as holding the Working Kids Garden as a community exchange event for career education, where children take the initiative in running an entire shopping district. In addition to other fund-raising activities for the National Campaign to Support Welfare Activities under the Coronavirus by the Community Chest Societies, DCM has made donations to medical support activities called for by local governments.

DCM has endorsed the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare's National Campaign to Support Welfare Activities under the Coronavirus by Community Chest Societies, and conducted fund-raising activities at all of its stores (approximately 670 stores). In addition to fundraising activities, DCM also made donations to medical support activities called for by local governments.

With the aim of promoting DIY, DCM holds DIY classes so that people can experience the fun of DIY and feel more familiar with it.
In addition, at the Workshop for Everybody, where DIY can be easily enjoyed, we offer more DIY consultations and workshops. DCM will continue to promote DIY activities so that as many customers as possible can experience the joy of DIY, including the process of making things and the joy of completion.

DCM holds the Working Kids Garden event to support career education for children. This event is aimed at career education, with children taking the initiative in running an entire shopping district. At the event, stalls selling children's homemade accessories, miscellaneous goods, and unwanted comic books lined up inside the store, and the children's energetic voices filled the store as they ran their own stalls and made purchases with a specialized currency called the Rice Ball Currency.

DCM is conducting the Children's Future Project to watch over the growth of children together with local residents through various activities.
The experience of growing grains and vegetables from seedling to harvest (including plowing and planting which make children covered in mud, weeding, fertilizing), digging potatoes and making rice cakes also links to food education for children. We will continue to support the learning of local children through various activities in the future.
