During the week of June 5th (2017) various leaders from the Northeast region were attending a Leadership Institute II Class in Dayton, OH. The class includes a volunteer event on Thursday at the local Foodbank. On Monday of that same week, pop-up hail storms pummeled the area and destroyed all of the 300+ newly planted tomatoes. The participants were originally scheduled to support their "food sort", along with some additional needs in their community garden.
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.
