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.
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.
