I’m proud to announce that this is the 37th year that FedEx has been involved with the United Way organization.
We continue to grow our involvement every year. Whether it’s loaning team members to United Way organizations, making corporate contributions or raising awareness of United Way activities, United Way and FedEx have a long and rich history.
Each fall, FedEx team members around the world participate in FedEx Cares Week, a week-long volunteer event that benefits local communities and the United Way. Last year – with over 90 global markets participating – more than 4,430 FedEx team members volunteered their time. Projects ranged from refurbishing and beautifying local attractions to building playgrounds and painting child-care centers. Other events included sorting and organizing food donations at local food banks.
I am excited to see how big of an impact we can make this year. The bar has been set high. Our company goal is to raise $15 million for the United Way.
FedEx team members: I encourage you to consider helping us grow our involvement and keep the tradition strong. Go to fedexcares.com to find out how you can get involved with FedEx Cares Week.
If you’re not a FedEx team member, we encourage you to visit unitedway.org or contact your local United Way for more information about volunteer opportunities near you.
Let’s make this year’s United Way campaign and FedEx Cares Week another success!
