Food and Supply Drive for Gateway Social Services Organization
The FXG Birmingham team from FedEx Ground decided to help provide much needed items to one of the oldest social service agencies in the Birmingham area, The Gateway Social Services Organization. This non-profit organization has been helping thousands of families for 125 years by providing assistance in the areas of family counseling, financial coaching, transitional living, crisis intervention, and therapeutic foster care. Their main mission is to help create stronger communities by empowering the people they serve.
Our team decided to help the Gateway Social Services Organization by collecting items they requested and delivering them inside our Purple Tote Bags. These items included toys for the youth, educational games and learning material, hygiene items (wipes, hand sanitizer, soap, paper towels, etc), school uniforms, snacks, and art and paint supplies. We arrived at the Gateway office to be greeted with smiles. We delivered a total of 42 Purple Tote Bags to the charity, and will continue to help in any way we can to insure the Gateway continues its success helping our youth and families in the Birmingham area.
