Delivering Shoes to the Sojourner Truth House
The Hammond terminal team from Indiana really pulled together for the FedEx Cares United Way Campaign. This year, the team decided to participate in a United Way Shoe Donation event that was focused on helping the Sojourner Truth House. Sojourner Truth House is a charity in Gary, Indiana dedicated to providing aid to homeless and at-risk women in the community by providing housing and training to help feed and empower these women to eventually be able to support themselves.
The entire Hammond team showed interest & donated tons of shoes for the cause. It was very heartfelt how so many people at our facility asked questions & took a genuine interest in donating to help the charity and their local community. All together, 83 Purple Tote Bags were filled for the Sojourner Truth House. Overall it was all with the best of intentions for the less fortunate that made this wonderful event possible.
