FedEx expands week of service to nearly 400 cities around the world


MEMPHIS, Tenn.–FedEx Corp. is celebrating the tenth anniversary of FedEx Cares Week and will mark the week by encouraging its team members around the world to volunteer in the communities in which they live and work. What started with just a handful of U.S. cities a decade ago has expanded into nearly 400 cities around the world.

FedEx Cares Week will be held from Sept. 21-27, 2014, in more than 75 U.S. cities, including Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Colorado Springs, Dallas, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, Memphis, Miami, Newark, Portland, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington, D.C.

Additionally, FedEx team members across the globe will serve their communities for FedEx Cares Week in countries such as Canada, France, Italy, Mexico, Brazil, Australia, and Hong Kong.

“FedEx team members around the world are passionate about making a difference in their communities,” said Rose Flenorl, manager of Global Citizenship at FedEx. “We are committed to delivering hope in these communities by volunteering with local nonprofits as we have done over the past 10 years in support of FedEx Cares Week.”’

FedEx Cares Week serves as the formal kick-off for the annual FedEx Cares United Way volunteer campaign. In addition to thousands of volunteer hours donated each year, FedEx and its team members gave more than $11.4 million to the United Way and other local nonprofits in 2013.
