Every year, 12.5 million Canadians volunteer their time to charitable and non-profit organizations. How would the non-profit sector survive without this kind of assistance? Or without the small group of Canadians –12% of the population – who contribute 78% of the volunteer hours tallied?
Volunteers shape our communities, so that we can happily call them “home.” They help to make parks safe for kids, help fight illiteracy, help build homes, and run for cancer. Volunteerism like this is not a new or trendy concept to UPS. It is one of the company’s core values to help strengthen the communities in which its employees live and work.
