Connecting to the communities where we live and work is a really important part of who we are and what we believe in.
That is why every year, our team members run a global campaign called FedEx Cares, and volunteer their personal time to support their local communities.
FedEx Cares takes place globally every autumn. This year, in the EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa and subcontinent India) region alone, over 4,200 team members contributed their time and generosity to help with 79 projects in 263 locations spread over seventeen countries (Austria, Bahrain, Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Germany, India, Israel, Italy, Kuwait, Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom). Some of the activities included:
- Food collections for various shelters across Europe (more than 6 tonnes collected in total)
- Blood donations and visits to orphanages in India
- Visits to elderly homes in the Middle East
- Various fundraising activities (running for charity, bake sales, etc.) for NGOs
Collectively, our team members in this region contributed almost 6,400 hours of their own time.
FedEx is proud to play an active role in improving life in the communities we serve, whether it's helping locally through our volunteering initiatives or providing global logistics for disaster relief programmes.
