Volunteerism

FedEx plays an active role in improving life in the communities we serve. Our team members volunteer hundreds of thousands of hours each year to make our local communities better places to live, work and play. 
 
Our team members support causes in their hometowns every day. Whether it is 150 employees in South Florida participating in a beautification project at a local school or two volunteers staffing a clothing drive for Dress for Success in Washington, D.C., our team members are actively involved and committed to addressing the needs of the communities where they work and live.

A part of the FedEx culture, this passion for volunteerism extends across borders and throughout the entire organization. In Korea, for example, volunteers have been in the field helping teach children about pedestrian safety while team members in Canada have participated in a Tower Climb to benefit local organizations. In Germany, our volunteers are involved with Die Tafel Frankfurt, a nonprofit organization that collects food from restaurants, supermarkets and bakeries to donate to people in need. And, in Uruguay, one of our team members led a project that recruited more than 300 volunteers to deliver toys for 700 children.
 
Each fall, FedEx team members participate in FedEx Cares Week, a weeklong volunteer event that benefits local communities and the United Way. Throughout the week, communities across the country host days of service, allowing more than 3,400 FedEx team members to volunteer their time. Projects range from refurbishing and beautifying local agencies, building playgrounds, and painting child-care centers to sorting and organizing donated food items at local food banks.
