ORLL-327 Fedex Cares

Dec 10, 2016

Orlando Local volunteer and collected donations to The Village, a transitional home for young adults that are 18-23 years old who have become too old to continue living under foster care. The Village helps these people by teaching them life skills and empowering them to support themselves as they transition to adulthood while also providing them with shelter. When the young men and women the charity houses gain enough self reliance and feel emotionally ready, the charity will then help the young adults find an apartment they can call home.

Our team set up a volunteer event with The Village that would also allow us to deliver our collected donations inside our 15 Purple Tote Bags at the same time. Inside of our Purple Tote Bags included toilet paper, paper towels, bath towels, shampoo/conditioner, toothbrush & toothpaste, deodorants, soaps, and non-perishable food. As for our time volunteering, we actually helped prepare a room for a future resident of The Village.

Everyone at The Village was excited and very appreciative for the help they were receiving. After our event, they sent us a letter giving us thanks for our volunteer efforts and donations which helps their ultimate goal of inspiring life’s potential. We were happy to support our community and to help others in need.
