On Sunday, March 27th, 2011, Wall Street Associates K.K., a mid to executive level recruitment company headquartered in Tokyo, was able to deliver a large consignment of water, food and basic medical supplies through donations from staff and customers across Japan. Our van met with 2 trucks leaving Costco in Saitama to drive to HOPE International’s Depot in Fukushima.

15 Wall Street Associates Staff volunteered to assist with packing, loading and driving the van.

We collected 7 boxes water, 12 boxes food and snacks, 3 boxes of medical supplies, 4 boxes of baby goods, 7 boxes of sanitary towels, 1 box of batteries radios, 4 boxes of wet tissue, 2 boxes of Hokkairo, 2 boxes of masks, 1 folding bike, 1 blanket, 1 box of clothes, 1 box of towels, and over 50,000JPY in cash donations.
