More than 70 UPS volunteers spend two days building computer lab for primary school

BEIJING, May 30, 2011--With its commitment to community involvement and volunteerism, UPS (NYSE: UPS) literally put "concrete" actions to work through the establishment of a computer lab for the students of Nan Wu Shi Jia Zi (in Chinese: South Fifty Houses) Mongolian Primary School in Pingquan, Hebei Province. More than 70 UPS employees from China and around the world volunteered for the two-day building project and were joined by U.S. Representative John Larsen. They traveled to the school and spent two days constructing a computer lab of approximately 100 square meters. UPS also donated 92 computers to the school to benefit the children and local community.

When the construction of the computer lab was completed the students and the UPS volunteers were joined by SPB Deputy Administrator Wang, local government and school officials, as well as Daniel Brutto, President of UPS International; Derek Woodward, President of UPS Asia Pacific region; and Richard Loi, President of UPS China for a ribbon-cutting.

"UPS hopes to help the children of Pingquan to expand their horizons so they can look upon a larger world, filled with great possibilities," said Daniel Brutto, President of UPS International. "Volunteerism and community involvement are integral components of the UPS culture and our success as a leading global logistics company. It was very meaningful for UPSers to spend two days constructing the lab with their own hands and meeting the children and families that it will benefit. Building this computer lab for Nan Wu Shi Jia Zi Mongolian Primary School is a reflection of both UPS's continuous support of education and poverty alleviation and our commitment to the China market."

Nan Wu Shi Jia Zi Mongolian Primary School serves a community with more than 10,000 rural residents, and is dedicated to providing comprehensive education to primary students with a current enrollment of approximately 450 students.

The computer lab project is funded by The UPS Foundation and is UPS's third building project in China. In 2002 and 2003, UPS completed projects in Zunhua and Xibaipo.

UPS China has been active with its CSR efforts in China. From 2004 to 2010, The UPS Foundation gave a total of more than USD3.4 million to Chinese organizations, and employees contributed over 20,800 hours of volunteer work to local communities. In 2010, the company donated a total of USD 615,000 to 26 programs across China.
