Now in its 47th year, the Anvil Awards is organized by the Public Relations Society of the Philippines to recognize outstanding public relations programs and tools in the Philippines.

Hundreds of FedEx employees in the Philippines volunteered to support this program, promoting pedestrian safety awareness by participating in classroom education, implementing road interventions, and facilitating pedestrian safety road shows in various parts of the country.
FedEx has always been committed to building strong, sustainable communities in the Philippines. FedEx actively supports community building initiatives together with nonprofit organizations such as ORBIS, Gawad Kalinga, Kythe, and Junior Achievement.
