Collaborating with the NPO Yofukupost Network Meeting, Tokyo Marathon Foundation has been initiating Clothing Reuse Project since 2018. Thanks to everyone involved, we received many clothing donations at the JOGPORT Ariake, volunteer seminars, and at the Tokyo Marathon WEEK Station in the 2020 event.

The following are 2020 annual report of the collected clothing donation:

【Total Weight】
465.55 kg

【Total Donation Raised】
3,272 yen
*Per 1 kg of clothing collected, 7 yen is donated to the Tokyo Goodwill Bank (Tokyo Council of Social Welfare).

The collected clothing has been shipped to secondhand markets throughout the world to be reused. We would like to thank everyone who participated in supporting the project!

In addition, it is our pleasure to announce that we have renewed the agreement with the NPO Yofukupost Network Meeting for another year.

We will also continue to collect clothing donation at JOGPORT Ariake, so feel free to drop-by whenever you are in the neighborhood.
