米国竜巻被害 義援金のご報告

今般皆さま方に米国の被害を受けた方々への義援金をお願いしましたところ、株式会社ブルボンより300万円の他、三菱重工業はじめ企業会員の各社、広島や愛知など全国連合会の協会、そして多くの会員の皆さま方より多大のご寄付を頂き、総額は6,840,000円になりました。本日付で全米日米協会連合会(NAJAS)に全額を送金し、NAJASより被害を受けたケンタッキー州、イリノイ州、テネシー州、ミズーリ州、アーカンソー州に以下の藤崎会長メッセージと共にご送金願うことと致しましたので、謹んでご報告申し上げます。

 

To friends in Kentucky, Illinoi, Tennessee, Missouri and Arkansas States.

 

We in Japan have watched through media, devastating disasters brought by tornadoes last month. Members of America-Japan societies around Japan would like to extend helping hands to those affected in the area. We received around 6 million yen from our members nearly a half of which is from Bourbon Corporation a cookie company in Japan. Although this amount would cover only a small potion of the amount needed, we hope it would be accepted as a token of  our friendship. Our thoughts are with you. We all pray for the swift recovery.

I am writing this on behalf of America-Japan societies in Japan.
