Nebraska District helps the Ronald McDonald House

Dec 19, 2016

The Nebraska District Field Sales Team donated Purple Tote Bags to both the Ronald McDonald House Charities & Girls Inc. During FedEx Cares week, the team had the opportunity to volunteer at both facilities and felt it was important to fill or Purple Tote Bags with much needed items for both charities. The Ronald McDonald house is an important charity because they provide a home away from home for families who need to take their child to a hospital out of state. Girls Inc is also important due to their mission to create a safe environment to adolescent girls after school and during the summer by providing a variety of programs that supports and encourages their education and positive life habits.

Our Purple Tote Bags for Girls Inc were filled with items to be used at their general store, where girls can earn points to purchase fun items. The Purple Tote Bags destined for the Ronald McDonald House included food and board games for the families that stay there. In total, the team delivered 15 Purple Tote Bags with a total monetary value of over $800!
