An Ordinary Delivery Leads to an Extraordinary Moment

Johnathan Nichols, an employee of KPR Express, Inc., a FedEx Ground service provider, has met thousands of people during the course of his daily routes.

“Trying to remember them all can be a bit difficult,” he said.

There is one woman he’ll never forget.

Johnathan remembers stopping at a house in Central, Louisiana on August 20. While scanning the packages in his truck, he noticed a woman outside frantically washing her clothes with a water hose. He carried the packages to the door and was greeted by her daughter, Courtney. She thanked him for the delivery and mentioned that the packages were for her mother, Donna, who had recently lost her home in the floods that have devastated areas in Louisiana and Mississippi.

Johnathan started walking back to his truck when he saw Donna break into tears as she tried to salvage the clothes that remained. He felt compelled to help.
