Following the 8.9 magnitude earthquake in Japan, The UPS Foundation pledged $1 million in relief for earthquake victims there. The funds will be used for in-kind transportation of emergency supplies, trained humanitarian logistics personnel and financial support. UPS is coordinating with its existing relief agency partners, including the Red Cross and the Salvation Army, to determine their needs.
UPS has resumed operations in Japan, but some areas still have limited service. Detailed service updates are on www.ups.com. Questions about individual packages can be directed to 1-800-782-7892.
Those interested in making cash or donations to assist relief efforts in Japan should be directed to the following sites: Aidmatrix Foundation, Japan Food Bank Network, the American Red Cross, the US Fund for UNICEF, CARE, The Salvation Army and Japanese American Citizens League.
