The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) has awarded United Parcel Service its "Corporate Citizen of the Year Award," which recognizes U.S. corporations for their involvement and support of minority community issues.

Kweisi Mfume, NAACP president & CEO, said UPS won the award based on its national and local charitable giving programs, as well as a management training initiative that allows company executives to work with non-profit groups to better understand the needs and problems of minorities.

Atlanta-based UPS also was cited for its work to expand educational opportunities for minority youth through the NAACP's Act-So program and for expanding business opportunities for minority- and women-owned companies through the UPS Supplier Diversity program.
