Hong Kong SAR, China, January 24, 2024 – More than 2,200 team members from FedEx Express (FedEx), a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) and one of the world’s largest express transportation companies, have been actively collecting over 8,000 kilograms of much-needed supplies for more than 30 non-profit organizations (NGOs) of choice across the Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa (AMEA) region.

These donations of supplies were made as part of the annual FedEx Cares Purple Tote Campaign which ran between October - December 2023 to empower FedEx team members to come together and support the NGOs they value most in their local communities. FedEx volunteers from 18 markets in the region including Australia, China, Egypt, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Namibia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, South Africa, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam, and the United Arab Emirates took part in the program.

This year team members came together in teams of all sizes across the region. Each team worked with their charities of choice and collected goods needed most and distributed to the charities in FedEx Cares purple tote bags. Over 2,400 beneficiaries including young children, the elderly and the underserved groups received goods with love from FedEx team members.

FedEx team in Hong Kong collected 60 pieces of toys for Green Toysland, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to bringing joy to kids and students through distribution of toys and stationery. Fourteen FedEx team members volunteered to collect, sort, and deliver the toys to the organization, which will be donated to the students in a local primary school in Kowloon District, Hong Kong.

“Every action that improves our world, no matter how small, is something extraordinary. These individual donations under our FedEx Cares program has created new opportunities for our team members to multiply the positive impact FedEx makes in the local communities where we live and work,” said Kawal Preet, president of Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa (AMEA) region at FedEx Express. “Committing to Do Good is one of our most important values, and community action like this is one of the things that makes working at FedEx so incredibly rewarding.”

“FedEx team members in Hong Kong initiated the toy donation activity to spread festive cheer during the holiday season. By volunteering ourtime and resources, we hope to further amplify our impact in the local communities and bring FedEx Cares Drive Forward Give Back to life,” said Anthony Leung, managing director, FedEx Express Hong Kong, and Macau. “The team’s dedication towards social responsibility and community awareness truly amplifies the cultural values at FedEx.”

As part of FedEx Cares, team members around the globe are encouraged to come together to ‘Drive forward. Give back.’ by volunteering and doing countless acts of caring throughout the year. Earlier In April 2023, FedEx teams across AMEA came together under the ’50 Days of Caring’ to support FedEx 50th anniversary. This program mobilized more than 1,000 FedEx volunteers and their families in community-based activities focused on sustainability and environmental protection, education, welfare, and support for the underserved.
