The Aeon Welfare Fund was established in 1977 in order to help disabled persons from across the country become more socially active and to improve their welfare.
Each member of the labor and management donate ¥50 (total of ¥100 combined) a month to the fund to help with social welfare initiatives such as donation of a welfare car and volunteer efforts. As of the end of February 2019, about 70,299 employees from 92 group companies participated. Since the establishment of the fund until the current day, a total of 95 welfare cars have been donated, and about 11,970 facilities have been visited.
