UPS Lends a Hand

  1. Updates

UPS has donated $18,000 to support the Playworks initiative at Lady Liberty Charter School in Newark, NJ, helping Greater Newark/Greater New York  to close 2012 with a  roar!  

The generous contribution followed an energetic Corporate Recess in October at a Newark school.  UPS employees interacted with 550 kids, had the opportunity to participate in Playworks’ energizing games, and gave plenty of high fives.  
 
We are thrilled to receive the continued support of UPS and greatly appreciate their generosity. We look forward to a continued and thriving partnership.
