This food bank relies on donors and volunteers to carry out the day to day operations. We sort food, we identify damaged or expired food items, we load boxes for individual families and assemble skids of these boxes for delivery. Sometimes we sort and count fresh fruits, like apples and bag them up for distribution. This Food Bank partners with more than 500 agencies in our area. For every dollar donated they are able to feed a family of four. Just $21 can feed a family of four for a week! We have volunteered at this particular food bank for several years.
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.
