Support our Soldiers!
A collaborative effort was formed with the Fort Worth Hub and Linehaul, Fort Worth Local, SWST District office and CPC, our combined team decided to assist the Support our Soldiers charity as part of the FedEx Cares United Way Campaign. Support our Soldiers is a non-profit organization started and run by Teresa Nelson. She corresponds through email directly with deployed soldiers to find out what their needs are and sends them packages along with letters of thanks. Some soldiers do not have family and this is their only mail.
With our combined efforts, we were able to raise $2,100 worth of supplies and filled an additional 90 Purple Tote Bags of needed items to Support our Soldiers. Those items will be sent to deployed soldiers overseas. Also, with the help of some Lonestar stations, we collected 1,760 letters of thanks to send to the soldiers as well. Our team was glad to be able to help stock the shelves of Support our Soldiers with items for our brave men and women away from home, especially during this time of year.
