FedEx Disaster Relief Effort for Midwest Tornadoes
FedEx and its team members are deeply saddened by the devastation caused by the recent tornadoes affecting the Midwest. Our thoughts are with the victims, survivors, loved ones and first responders affected by the tornadoes.
FedEx is diligently working with the American Red Cross, Salvation Army, Direct Relief International and Heart to Heart International by donating transportation of relief supplies to affected areas.
For FedEx team members and customers who would like to help in the crisis, please contact the following disaster relief organizations directly. Due to logistical challenges in the affected areas, these organizations prefer monetary support over the collection of new and used items. For team members, visit fedexcares.com for more information on how to help Heart to Heart by building disaster response kits.
