FedEx Cares week mobilises 10,000 staff around the world

Over 10,000 FedEx staff from around the world will volunteer nearly 55,000 hours as volunteers for community and environmental projects as part of the 11th annual FedEx Cares Week.

The Cares week began in 2004 and was predominantly focused in the lower 48 of the US, but this has expanded to nearly every territory in which the company operates. It now serves nearly 500 communities worldwide including Europe, South East Asia and South America.

FedEx Cares week is the formal kick off for the annual FedEx Cares United Way volunteer campaign. In addition to volunteer hours put in, the company has raised nearly USD $12 million to United Way and a number of other nonprofits.
