Coca-Coca-Cola Bottlers Japan Niigata SC is located about 10 minutes drive from Niigata Station in Niigata Prefecture where there are many sightseeing spots and local specialties. Thanks to the understanding and cooperation of the people of Niigata Prefecture, Niigata SC has installed many donation-collecting vending machines to support people who have had childhood cancer or other intractable diseases. Today, we will introduce the support vending machines that Niigata SC area has been working to deploy.
■HeartLink Support Vending Machines "Because I want to see your smile again"
HeartLink Working Project (located in Niigata City, Niigata Prefecture) is a certified NPO established in 2011, whose missions are to provide support to childhood cancer survivors who have difficulty finding employment opportunities and help them stay connected with society and lead self-reliant social lives. Niigata SC has started installations of HeartLink support vending machines to support their activities by donating a portion of our proceeds and back their efforts to provide employment support for childhood cancer survivors with late-stage complications. As of today (the end of March, 2021), Niigata SC has installed 216 units in Niigata Prefecture and neighboring regions, and is committed to increasing the number of units to provide greater support.

Niigata Intractable Disease Support Network is an NPO that was established on November 30, 2006. They are operating as an intractable disease consultation/support center with the help of medical, healthcare, and welfare professionals as well as residents of Niigata Prefecture.
