At UPS, we are proud of our more than 30 year partnership with United Way, an organization that shares our dedication to improving lives, strengthening communities and creating lasting positive impacts for those in need. Combined with the generosity of UPS employees, we have given more than $1 billion to United Way since the beginning of our relationships with them in 1982. To date, no other organization has reached this milestone.
United Way is a national network of nearly 1,300 local organizations. The organization's extensive reach and commitment to addressing education, income generation and health issues enables us to address pressing needs in communities where we live and work across the country.
We have twice won United Way's Spirit of America award, the organization's highest national honor for corporate involvement and commitment to building better communities.
