Angel Tree Project

Feb 1, 2017

While many companies hold toy drives to donate for various Christmas events, FedEx employees in Irving, TX hold their own toy drive called The Angel Tree Project each year to benefit kindergarten students. This year, a group of students at Good Elementary School received toys and gifts from their FedEx “angels.”

For over nine years FedEx Ground, Freight, Office, and Services employees in the Irving/Dallas, TX area spread Christmas joy to economically disadvantaged children at our local schools.
