This year, our team of FedEx Ground employees located in Montgomery, Al decided to help our local United Way center as part of the FedEx Cares United Way Campaign. Our reason behind helping them this year is due to our consistent participation in their events. We contacted the local United Way and found out that they were giving away care packets to those families in need for Thanksgiving. To help with the effort, employees donated imperishable items and placed them in a box and then once the Purple Tote Bags arrived, we distributed the items evenly in each bag. These Purple Tote Bags were then delivered to the United Way where the contents of our Purple Tote Bags would be used for the care packets.
It was very exciting for everyone and it felt so good to do something to assist those that are less fortunate. The team all had smiles on their faces after seeing all those totes that they filled just from donations. United Way employees were so grateful for what we did for those families and we feel joyous for helping out community members in need!
