Connections Donates Masks to Charity

Members donated more than 750 face masks in the recent charity drive organized by Connections (formerly known as the Women's Group).

The masks were provided to Sanyukai, a homeless men's shelter in Tokyo. The nonprofit has been supported by the Club for a number of years.

"We didn’t expect to collect so many masks through the Club," says Tomomi Fujita of Connections' charities committee. "These masks can help slow the spread of coronavirus, save lives and, ultimately, help our communities and the economy recover quicker."

The drive was launched in April and wrapped up on June 30.

The work of Sanyukai was featured in the November 2013 issue of the Club's INTOUCH magazine.
