Each year, the annual campaign is organized by Ryder executives and volunteers who plan and execute a week of fundraising activities and donations made through an online pledging portal. This year's campaign theme, "Live. Care. Give." united employees at the Company's global headquarters in Miami, major employee centers in Novi, Mich., Alpharetta, Ga. and Ft. Worth, Texas, as well as Ryder's national rental organization and operational leaders across the United States.

Ryder has supported United Way of Miami-Dade for more than 40 years, and in recent years, the organization has assisted Ryder in expanding its company campaign to support other Ryder communities in the United States. Funds raised through the campaign support programs that prepare children for success in school and life, help individuals and families become financially stable, and offer resources that help individuals, families, and older adults improve their health.

"Ryder's commitment and passion for helping others is unwavering," said Harve A. Mogul, United Way of Miami-Dade president and CEO. "The Ryder employee campaign is one of the largest and oldest in our history and a wonderful example of a model campaign where staff at every level is engaged in making Miami a better place for all of us."

As part of his long-standing commitment to the United Way efforts, Ryder Chairman and CEO Robert Sanchez also led its countywide campaign as co-chair along with Alexandra Villoch, President and Publisher of the Miami Herald Media Company.
