The “Power Of One”, multiplied by many- Can Food Drive Orlando Florida benefiting our local United Way Community
With the United Way Charity Food Drive under way, employees at our Orlando location vowed to surpass last year’s goal. We filled bag, after bag, with good wholesome foods. Our local United Way Emergency & Homelessness Services Program will be providing this food for families right here in our area.
So many of us have personally witnessed people who need help in our own communities especially with the holidays right around the corner, and the United Way gave us the opportunity to help Orlando families (right here in our own hometown!). Our hearts broke knowing the holiday are around the corner when we were told “on any given night, an estimated 10,000 residents with children are living on the streets, staying in shelters or sleeping in cars. Even more heartbreaking, the fastest-growing segment of this population is families with children”. In knowing this, food items poured in - and we surpassed last year’s goal by an additional 110 Purple Tote Bags!
We knew our food would be useful for Thanksgiving season. We are proud to join FedEx teams around the world in lending a helping hand through the “Power Of One” delivering our Purple Promise to our neighbors and communities through United Way charities.
