Longtime United Way supporter UPS was recently named 2012 Corporate Partner of the Year by the L.A. Business Journal during its Nonprofit and Corporate Citizenship Awards luncheon at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles.
Each year, a different corporation is presented with the honor in recognition of its impact on a nonprofit organization through fundraising efforts as well as both financial and non-financial contributions.
In nominating UPS for the prestigious award, United Way credited Noel Massie – President of the company’s Central California District – with being the driving force behind its outstanding philanthropic efforts in the areas of employee giving and volunteerism.
“Aside from serving on UWGLA’s Corporate Board of Directors and as Chair of its 2011-2012 Campaign Cabinet, he led UPS employees to selflessly donate 40,000 hours of their time last year alone. He encourages his team, day in and day out, to learn more about our community’s most pressing issues, to get involved and inspire others to do the same – even while on the job.”
