Beijing, December 19, 2011

2011 UPS China "Global Volunteer Month" a great success

UPS (NYSE: UPS) made low-carbon and adopting a green lifestyle the theme of its 2011 "UPS Global Volunteer Month", during which 1,649 UPS employees and their family members participated in 57 volunteer activities and contributed 4,457 volunteer hours to serve the communities in which they live and work.

UPS employees in China organized and participated in a wide range of volunteer activities, which included: teaching students about international trade; holding parties for the elderly living in welfare housing and for mentally disabled students at vocational and technical schools; taking part in environmental research; removing litter and promoting the importance of ecological balance.

This year, The UPS Foundation has donated US$70,000 to the Green Travel Fund (under CANGO – the China Association for NGO Cooperation) to help Guangyuan, Sichuan Province, with its goal of advocating low-carbon environmentalism and supporting China’s public welfare cause by becoming the first city to exclusively use energy-saving lights. UPS also held a series of activities in conjunction with the CANGO Green Travel Fund. Under the theme "Low-carbon Citizen Volunteers in Action", activities such as "Test Drive and Ride of New Energy Automobiles" and "Forecast for the Shenzhen’s Year of Green Travel", were aimed at publicizing the ideas and lifestyle of low-carbon environmentalism and green travel.

Since it was founded in 1907, UPS has built a legacy as a caring and responsible corporate citizen. UPS has established Community Involvement Committees in every country within their business network to support programs that provide long-term solutions to community needs.
