The Castle Donington Volunteer Centre has received a grant from the UPS Foundation which drives global corporate citizenship and philanthropic programmes for UPS.
The grant has been used to fully fund a Disabled Passenger Bus to replace vehicles within an elderly fleet. This will provide an improved level of reliable service which helps to maintain the independence and mobility of people in the community.
Wayne Tranmer, a Trustee at CDVC said “This is a red letter day for the Volunteer Centre, a contribution like this from an international organisation of the size and reputation of UPS is a recognition that the work we do is valued both locally and from afar. This will help support and improve our community services for years to come. We look forward to our continuing links with UPS at East Midlands Airport.”
Established in 1951 and based in Atlanta, Georgia, The UPS Foundation identifies specific areas where its backing clearly impacts social issues. In support of this strategic approach, The UPS Foundation has identified the following focus areas for giving: volunteerism, diversity, community safety and the environment.
In 2016, we invested nearly 2.7 million volunteer hours and more than $116 million dollars into our global communities. The UPS Foundation can be found on the web at UPS.com/foundation
