UPS Partners with Feed the Children to Deliver Community Support in Cebu

Cebu, December 19, 2011

UPS Philippines employees in Cebu rolled-up their brown sleeves to continue delivering more than logistics know-how during the company’s 9th annual Global Volunteer Month. Eighty UPS employees and their families delivered nearly 400 volunteer hours during a two-day tree-planting activity in Barangay Toong, Cebu City, last October 22 and 23, 2011.

The environmental effort was jointly conducted with local non-government organization Feed the Children, as well as with representatives from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) and Guadalupe Elementary School.

Expected to provide a variety of benefits to the local community, including improved air and water quality, some 500 tugas, narra, and talimboy seedlings were planted in an area measuring 700 square meters.

"UPS’s assistance to Feed the Children stems from its commitment toward continued social investment and the promotion of sustainable development," said Tim Gohoc, managing director of UPS Philippines. "Providing resources for our children is only one step in protecting their welfare and fostering hope. It is through our partnerships that we continue to work toward creating profound and long-term impact in communities."

In Cebu, the tree-planting activity is part of a larger partnership of UPS with Feed the Children, which aims to respond to the various needs of underprivileged Filipino children. Feed the Children is also the recipient of a US$ 22,000 sponsorship grant from The UPS Foundation, with the local organization using the endowment to promote financial literacy and provide education for out-of-school youth, particularly in dressmaking and computer literacy.

UPS’s Global Volunteer Month is only one of the many examples of the company’s long-standing commitment to volunteerism. Since its founding in 1907, UPS has built a legacy as a responsible corporate citizen. Whether through involvement with The UPS Foundation, United Way, or volunteerism, UPS provides support to programs that address social and community issues, including economic and global literacy, environmental sustainability, nonprofit effectiveness, diversity and community safety.
