September 10, 2015

HONG KONG, September 10, 2015 — FedEx Express (FedEx), a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYS: FDX) and the world’s largest express transportation company, is today launching its eighth annual FedEx Cares Week in the Asia Pacific region. From today to November 7, around 1,100 FedEx volunteers from 12 Asia Pacific markets[1] are expected to take part in 42 community initiatives across the region. This year’s projects include cooking for the needy, organizing activities for the elderly, giving support to mobile medical clinics and environmental conservation, among others.

“Volunteerism is a cornerstone of FedEx culture,” said Karen Reddington, president, FedEx Express Asia Pacific. “FedEx volunteers across Asia Pacific aspire with us to address the social and economic needs in their local communities. It makes me proud to see so many employees turn that aspiration into a reality through a variety of activities in the FedEx Cares Week this year.”

More than 10,000 FedEx team members from around the world will volunteer nearly 55,000 hours during FedEx Cares Week. FedEx Corp. began this tradition in a handful of U.S. cities in 2004 and has since expanded it to nearly 500 global communities where its team members live and work.
