KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, November 7, 2023 – FedEx Express (FedEx), a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) and one of the world’s largest express transportation companies, has successfully completed four-month support to a program with local non-profit Treat Every Environment Special (TrEES) to grow and deliver vegetables to underprivileged communities in Malaysia.
From August to November 2023, 16 FedEx volunteers engaged in planting, harvesting, sorting and distribution of vegetables, as well as maintenance of a 1,000 square foot community garden located in the Klang Valley. On the final day of the program, the FedEx volunteers delivered the vegetables to a local care home.
“I am thrilled to see the team volunteering their personal time to support programs which enable positive sustainable changes in our communities,” said Tien Long Woon, managing director of FedEx Express Malaysia. “FedEx is committed to creating a better world and one way we are doing so is by supporting local sustainable farming efforts to improve food security among the less fortunate.”
“Working alongside FedEx on this vegetable farming program has been an incredibly rewarding experience. We hope that this program will continue to benefit various communities on a long-term basis,” said Leela Panikkar, Director of Treat Every Environment Special (TrEES).
