FedEx Thailand Delivers Support for School in Ayutthaya

November 30, 2012

BANGKOK, September 4, 2012—More than 100 FedEx volunteers led by David Carden, managing director of FedEx Express Thailand and Indochina, travelled to Ayutthaya Province to help renovate Pornpinitpitayakarn School which was devastated by the floods of last year.

The company recently donated THB 450,000 to the AMCHAM Foundation’s Adopt-a-School program to assist with the rehabilitation of the school buildings and grounds.  The funds were used to build a new two-storey toilet block and provide new playground equipment as well as new desks and chairs for the classrooms.  The donation will also provide funding towards the employment of a fourth teacher at the school in the coming year.

“FedEx is a strong advocate of giving back to our local communities through action.  This has never been more important than now, when so many schools are rehabilitating their grounds and classrooms after the flooding,” said Carden.

“Our people have taken personal time out of their weekend to help these children because we all know just how important education is for young children and for the future of the country.  I am very proud we have been able to make a difference in such a meaningful and tangible way.”
