Richmond, VA-Cadence Theatre Company received a $10,000 grant from The UPS Foundation, which gives global corporate citizenship and philanthropic programs for UPS (NYSE:UPS).

The UPS Foundation funds will go to support the Stage Write student leadership and workforce development program, which gives Richmond City High School students the opportunity to develop workforce readiness skills by focusing on mock interviews, resume writing, speech presentation, contextualized learning, teamwork, critical thinking, problem solving, self-awareness, and professionalism.

Stage Write Program Director Laine Satterfield shares, “Our goal is to give the students the confidence and life skills they need to be of greatest value to their community at large and UPS Freight’s volunteers have been instrumental in our continued growth and success. We eagerly look forward to next year’s program.”

In support of this strategic approach, The UPS Foundation has identified the following focus areas for giving: volunteerism, diversity, community safety and the environment.

In 2015, UPS and its employees, active and retired, invested more than $110 million in charitable giving around the world. The UPS Foundation can be found on the web at UPS.com/foundation. To get UPS news direct, visit pressroom.ups.com/RSS.
