East Syracuse: Samaritan Center
Package Handlers and Administrative staff made 100 Peanut Butter & Jelly sandwiches; in addition to inbound package handlers making 83 sandwiches for the Samaritan Center. The Samaritan Center is a 501c3 organization committed to serving the hungry and those in need in order to promote their welfare dignity and self sufficiency. It is rooted in the belief that sound nutrition is the first step in enabling people to cope and become productive, self-sufficient members of society. Since 1981 the Samaritan Center has worked to fight hunger in the greater Syracuse community by providing nutritious hot meals to anyone in need 7 days a week – no questions asked. FedEx Ground employees also volunteered at the local soup kitchen serving the Syracuse area hungry and homeless.
