Pairs of Joy
Our team decided to help the Volunteers of America this year for the FedEx Cares United Way Campaign. Volunteers of America is an nationwide charity organization that helps our local community by providing a homeless shelter, meals, and clothing to the Reno/Sparks area. To assist the charity, we combined both of our Reno buildings, 895 & 896, to collect 877 pairs of socks from package handlers, drivers, management and office staff. All of these were placed inside our Purple Tote Bags and were delivered to Volunteers of America.
It turns out that our donation will be distributed to men, women and children in our area. We did not realize before we started this event how much a new pair of socks can help a homeless person.We are very humbled to help out so many people with something that we all take for granted....a new pair of socks.
