Investing in our communities
Amazon Fulfillment has long been committed to investing in and giving back to the communities where our employees live and work. We’re proud of the impact we’ve made to local communities, including employment opportunities, support for local causes and the investments we’ve made in our fulfillment centers.
For Amazon Fulfillment, it’s important to us to give back in areas that make real impact and support communities, job creation, education, and training the next generation of innovators for the jobs of the future.

We make contributions to the community in many ways: through hundreds of local and national grants made every year across North America; through thousands of employee volunteer hours; and through the donation of products from our inventory to local nonprofits.
