More than 100 homeless men and women were treated to a hot breakfast Monday, and given essentials to make them more comfortable: personal hygiene items, blankets, long johns & socks (Just in time for the first Mississippi cold snap), food staples, and more. The local United Way of SE Mississippi has been doing a "census" of the area homeless for the past few years and this annual service event helps to connect them to the products and services they need.
Volunteerism: The Core of FedEx Cares
volunteered by FedEx Team Members during the fall FedEx Cares campaign
Giving back is part of the FedEx culture. Team members support our charitable investments and local community needs by dedicating their time where they live and work around the world. Volunteerism is more than a one-time event or delivery.
Volunteerism & Purple Totes
Our goal is to donate ~$500K in goods to non-profits in need.
