Mizuho Volunteer Day

Since 2006, Mizuho employees, family members and friends have participated in Mizuho Volunteer Day (MVD), volunteering in their local communities as part of Mizuho's global day of community service. Office staff identify and implement hands–on projects that respond to an important community need.

Despite challenging circumstances due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our MVD volunteers responded with creativity, compassion, and commitment to help others worldwide. MVD projects were wide ranging and included outreach to vulnerable seniors and children, support for first responders and essential workers, food and other donation drives, environmental clean-ups, and financial education. While participation was lower than in prior years due to the pandemic, new avenues of opportunity opened to accommodate social restrictions, demonstrating innovation and adaptability. We added virtual projects, often conducted while working from home, and new collaborations with NGOs and other partners.
