Food for Ralph

Food for Ralph

Nov 18, 2016

For the FedEx Cares United Way Campaign, our team consisting of members from FedEx Express, FedEx Services, FedEx Freight & FedEx Office in Roseville, MN decided to help the Ralph Reeder Food Shelf. Ralph Reeder Food Shelf is located in an education center where they dedicated their time providing emergency and supplemental food to families in need as well as providing them with resources to help empower them. This community has a significant population below the poverty level which makes their location helpful for parents being able to drop their children off at school and visit the food shelf to obtain items needed to feed their children.

It was thanks to our team's collaborations that we were able to deliver 563 pounds of food products in our Purple Tote Bags. We also were able to provide $70 in cash donations to Ralph Reeder Food Shelf as well. The donations our team provided to Ralph Reeder Food Shelf contributed significantly to help fill shelves that were becoming quite sparse. With the upcoming holidays, the extra food was much appreciated.
