Pizzamaru, the Korean native pizza franchise, is continuing its heart-warming move related to CSR(corporate social responsibility).

This time, Pizzamaru decided to provide periodic sponsorship to the Korea Rehabilitation Agency every month, and proceeded with a signboard hanging ceremony related to this on the 24th.

The Korea Rehabilitation Agency is an organization under the Ministry of Justice which supports crime prevention activities and helps the released prisoners return to society.

Pizzamaru agreed with the social value pursued by the public corporation, and decided to periodically sponsor a monthly welfare fund to help local released prisoners adapt to society.

The sponsored amount will be used as a welfare fund only for first-time offenders. Its major purpose is to create a safe society by lowering the second offense rate.

What is significant about this move by Pizzamaru is that the company has been continuing good deeds persistently. Pizzamaru has attracted the attention of the industry and consumers with its persistent CSR activities.
Currently, Pizzamaru is carrying out sponsorship projects in various areas for disabled people and fire stations, and has been selecting college student volunteer supporters for lending a helping hand to the local community.

A spokesperson of Pizzamaru said, “It is true that domestic franchise companies has a minimal awareness of CSR activities,” and added, “Pizzamaru will transform the culture of the domestic franchise industry through engaging in continuous social contribution activities.”
