Thanks a billion, UPS

This summer, the UPS Foundation and UPS employees and retirees reached an incredible milestone - donating $1 billion to improve lives and local communities in partnership with United Way since 1982.
In 2009, UPS’ charitable contributions totaled nearly $100 million, including more than $55 million from their 2009 workplace campaign. UPS employees and their families also contributed more than 1.2 million hours of volunteer service last year through the company’s Global Volunteer Month and Neighbor-to-Neighbor program. UPS, a two-time winner of the United Way Spirit of America Award, uses all its resources to give back, whether it’s loaning UPS executives to local United Ways, rebuilding a house in the Gulf Coast to help families still living in temporary FEMA housing after Hurricane Katrina, or donating autographed NASCAR merchandise for eBay auctions to benefit United Way.
