Seattle is where it all began. Jim Casey grew up here and knew what poverty felt like. He dropped out of school to deliver packages via bicycle, ultimately building the service into UPS, a global multibillion dollar corporation. Not to lose sight of his roots, he and his siblings formed the Annie E. Casey Foundation in 1948 to help kids who were living in tough circumstances and to stabilize families and communities through creating opportunities. 

This brochure contains background on some of the Casey projects and partnerships as of 2007 that reflect that passion.
