Investing in Our Community: Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh

Jan 18, 2017

For children, the uncertainty and fear that accompanies a trip to the hospital can be overwhelming.

Removed from their familiar home settings and taken to a big building full of strangers and scary equipment often raises anxiety.

Over the past several years, FedEx Ground has made a significant investment in “distraction therapy” tools to help the kids at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh (CHP) of UPMC take their minds off their ailments for a while.

Golden Age Nursing Home

Dec 30, 2016

Every year we collect money and buy individual gifts for the Nursing Home. This one nursing home is state funded. Many of their residence have no family. This year we took on a extra charity. We helped with the foster care families. We sent lots of new clothes. I was very discouraged and sad when I was fearful that we weren't going to have enough money to buy for our nursing home residence. The word got out, and all of the drivers started donating money. We raised more than last year! We even bought them a 55" TV, (they had a little one) We got them a DVD player, with lots of movies.
