FEDEX Express, in collaboration with non-profit organization Hands On Manila, has given educational assistance to 5,900 students of the Ricardo P. Cruz Elementary School in Taguig, Manila and the Callos Escopalia Elementary School in Santa Cruz, Laguna.

As part of the FedEx Cares program, the company donated laptops, printers, tablets, books, school supplies, agricultural tools, hygiene kits and medicines. It will provide internet connection for two years to support the learning of students.

Meanwhile, 13 FedEx volunteers also engaged in storytelling and arranged art sessions for over 90 students.

FedEx Express Philippines Managing Director Maribeth Espinosa said they are committed in supporting the social and economic needs of disadvantaged communities.

“Committing to Do Good is one of our core culture values. Our commitment in supporting the social and economic needs of disadvantaged communities including youth education contributes to our purpose to connect people and possibilities,” she said.

Hands on Manila Program Manager Jeff Gallardo thanked FedEx for its donations to help the students.

“We are deeply grateful for the commitment from FedEx on providing grant donations and developing a program that has a transformational impact on the growth of Filipino public school students,” Gallardo said.
