Dec. 23 /CSRwire/ - PHILADELPHIA, - UPS employees have adopted 23 needy families in Southwest Philadelphia this holiday season. At 10 a.m. on Christmas Eve, employees at the UPS airport facility will be loading up the big brown trucks and heading to the homes of 23 families in need. Each family will receive a food basket, gifts and a Christmas tree if needed.

Each division of the airport has adopted a family. Among those who will benefit from the adopt-a-family efforts are 81 children. Twenty-one of the twenty-three families are single-parent homes; 19 single mothers and 2 single fathers.

UPS will be delivering Christmas itself for many of these families. All media are welcome at the airport facility to witness the efforts of loading the trucks for delivery. Unfortunately, due to the sensitive nature of delivery to private homes, we have to restrict media to the UPS building.

Directions to the Airport

Philadelphia, PA 19153

From I-95 S -- Travel I-95 S to the Island Ave exit. Continue straight until the first stop sign, which will be Fort Mifflin Rd.
