UNITED WAY TO RECEIVE $250,000 GRANT FOR FLOOD RECOVERY FROM UPS

 ATLANTA, Aug. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- The UPS Foundation today donated $250,000 through the United Way of America, to support ongoing flood recovery efforts in the Midwest. The UPS Foundation is the charitable arm of United Parcel Service, based in Atlanta.
 "Literally every community impacted by the flood is served by UPS, and we feel obligated to help," said Kent C. Nelson, chairman and CEO of UPS. "We chose the United Way to distribute our grant because it has the broadest possible reach into those communities hit hardest by the flood."
 Of the $250,000, the Red Cross and the Salvation Army will each receive $25,000. The balance of the grant will be divided among United Way agencies serving health and human services needs of the flood recovery programs.
