Global Volunteer Month

We’re more than UPS employees. We are your neighbors. We live and work in your community, and we are dedicated to volunteering time, sharing knowledge and donating funds to make it better. At UPS, there’s a culture that supports community service, helping us harness our collective effort in ways that make a real difference around the globe. That’s why we recently pledged to complete 20 million hours of global volunteerism and community service by the end of 2020.

Each October, UPS employees make a difference in local communities through volunteer activities during Global Volunteer Month (GVM). In 2013, UPSers and their families logged over 1.8 million volunteer hours - with 300,000 of those hours happening during GVM.
