FedEx named a honoree of The Civic 50
FedEx today announced their recognition as an honoree of The Civic 50 by Points of Light, the world’s largest organisation dedicated to volunteer service. The award recognises FedEx as one of the 50 most community-minded companies in the United States.
The Civic 50 honorees are public and private companies with US operations and revenues of $1 billion or more. The honorees are selected on four dimensions of their US community engagement program including investment, integration, institutionalisation and impact.
FedEx attributes their recognition to their core belief of “connecting people in need with people who care.” They say that more than 450,000 FedEx team members are proud to be a part of delivering a positive impact around the world.
The Civic 50 provides a national standard for superior corporate citizenship and showcases how companies can use their time, skills and resources to impact their communities. The Civic 50 honorees will be announced at the Points of Light Conference in St. Paul, Minnesota, where corporate citizenship leaders from across the country gather to discuss social innovation, civic engagement and cross-sector collaboration.
“The Civic 50 truly highlights the commitment of community and civic engagement of America’s leading brands. Points of Light believes that people drive change in addressing society’s growing and most profound challenges. The business community plays an important role in creating and delivering innovative solutions that drive social good in the communities where they live and work.”
