FedEx Supports Social Needs of Less Fortunate Children in South Korea by Donating Care Packages
SEOUL, Korea, September 20, 2023 — FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) and one of the world’s largest express transportation companies, teamed up with non-profit ChildFund Korea to deliver care packages containing eco-friendly school supplies and daily necessities to less fortunate children.
On September 16th, a team of 73 volunteers, consisting of FedEx employees and their families, put together 500 care packages containing a bamboo toothbrush, toothpaste, and case, natural soap for face and body, bamboo towel, upcycled mini eco-friendly bag, multivitamins and a stationary set. FedEx and ChildFund Korea will deliver these to elementary students from low-income families or socially vulnerable backgrounds across the country including Seoul, Gyeonggi, Busan, Chungcheong and Gyeongsang.
“For more than three decades in South Korea, we have been supporting programs that propel positive sustainable changes and create a better world,” said Wonbin Park, managing director of FedEx Express Korea. “Our team members are empowered to create an impact to the communities through volunteering in activities such as this that contribute to the social and economic needs of the less fortunate. Our goal of connecting people and possibilities globally goes beyond empowering businesses. Not only are we looking to bridge the gap between businesses and customers, but also delivering hope and opportunities to help local communities thrive. This is who we are and what we do”.
