UPS Delivers Magic Again This Holiday Season One Wish At A Time

ATLANTA, Nov. 17, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- UPS (NYSE: UPS) has launched the annual Wishes Delivered campaign, created to spread goodwill and share stories of people making a difference. This year, UPS employees were asked to submit their wishes for the people and communities where UPSers work and live every day.

"With Wishes Delivered, we are able to bring wishes to life that can make a difference in the communities we serve," said UPS chief marketing and business services officer Teresa Finley. "This year, we are excited to have our employees - who act as problem solvers every day - have an opportunity to see their holiday wishes fulfilled and pay it forward in their local communities."

Every time a Wishes Delivered story is shared on social media channels like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, UPS will donate $1 to one of three charities: The Boys and Girls Clubs of America, The Salvation Army, and Toys for Tots Literacy Program*. From a little girl's wish to make sure kids in need have toys, to high school football rivals in East Baton Rouge, LA coming together to rebuild after devastating floods, to delivery of more than 20 mini UPS ® trucks across the globe, follow the stories at wishesdelivered.ups.com. UPS finds magic and hope with each wish delivered during the holiday season.

Since first launching during the 2014 holiday season, Wishes Delivered has surprised and delighted deserving individuals and organizations who put others first. Last year, UPS helped Civil Rights leader Mr. Robert J. Brown's International BookSmart Foundation get 180 tons of books to children in Africa, and teamed up with The St. Bernard Project to return 91-year-old Aurora Gonzales to her home in San Marcos, TX, after a devastating flood washed it away. And UPS's littlest driver Carson fulfilled his dream of making some deserving kids UPS drivers for the day to deliver gifts to others in need.
