FedEx Cares-BBQ/United Way Event (Loaves & Fishes) 2016
On Oct. 18, 2016 at the FedEx Cares BBQ/United Way Event, a total of 200.00 & 15 Purple Tote Bags were filled with groceries & donated to the non-profit Loaves and Fishes. Loaves & Fishes is a private charity; it neither solicits nor accepts government money, but relies solely on private donations to support its work of feeding the hungry and sheltering the homeless. Without passing judgment, and in a spirit of love and hospitality, Loaves & Fishes feeds the hungry and shelters the homeless. They provide an oasis of welcome, safety, and cleanliness for homeless men, women and children seeking survival services.
This is the second year that FedEx Services Sales & FedEx Freight West Division has participated in delivering Purple Tote Bags to the non-profit to help feed the homeless and assist with the current needs of the organization. The employees receiving the donations greeted FedEx with a big smile and said, “We remember you & the purple totes from last year, Thanks so much FedEx”.
