Special Giveback this Holiday Season

Posted 12.10.14 | Nutrition Specialist

From filling stockings to filling up on a pie, the holiday season ingrains the spirit of giving back. The holiday season is about practicing gratitude, empathy, thoughtfulness and spreading happiness.

Our business partner UPS, took their commitment of delivering smiles to another level, with their #WishesDelivered campaign.

UPS granted a four-year-old’s wish of becoming a UPS driver. Like many of our Neocate little ones, when Carlson was born, he was not able to drink milk or any form of milk protein. UPS would deliver Carlson his formula milk for four years through regular deliveries by Mr. Ernie- the UPS driver.


Carlson dreams of becoming a UPS driver so much that he has a UPS uniform of his own. Last month UPS surprised Carson with a special delivery.  Inside Mr. Ernie's delivery truck was a smaller UPS truck for Carson to drive around his neighborhood. Carlson’s wish was granted and he became a UPS driver for a day delivering packages in the neighborhood in his little UPS delivery truck.

Your Wishes Delivered is a UPS campaign designed to invite the public to share their wishes during the holidays. This year, the company will donate $1 for each wish submitted using #WishesDelivered to one of three charities - The Boys and Girls Clubs of America, The Salvation Army or Toys for Tots Literacy Program.
