Beginning September 12, FedEx team members around the world will show they care by volunteering in their communities during FedEx Cares Week.  The annual event takes place September 17-23 in the Asia Pacific region and September 12-17 everywhere else in the world.  FedEx Cares Week was launched in the USA in 2005 and has expanded to more than 40 countries and territories around the globe since then.

This year’s projects include restoring schools, orphanages, homes for the elderly and ill people, planting trees and greening beaches, food bank assistance, support for the homeless and adults with disabilities and many more.  Below is a more detailed list of projects FedEx team members will be tackling through September 23.
