In April and October, Mazda provided MRY as the venue for the Roadster (MX-5 overseas) Charity Flea Markets held under the auspices of participating Mazda vehicle owners and the Company. Mazda presented a booth staffed by volunteer employees.
The number of participants totaled around 250, including 11 employee volunteers. At the Mazda booth, volunteer employees sold daily articles and Mazda merchandise gathered with the help of employees, as well as cookies made at a social service facility in the neighborhood of MRY. (A portion of the proceeds from the flea markets was used to promote exchange activities between the children in social service facilities, etc. and Mazda vehicle owners.)
