Team Atlantic delivers

Dec 9, 2016

Team Atlantic visited Harwood Center, a school for children with special needs. This is such a great school serving the community for artistic children with special needs. We also have a team member who had a child to go there and therefore really understand their needs and the greatness of services provided. We spent time with the children during arts and crafts by painting rocks, singing Christmas carols and played games with the children. Each team member was paired up with a child, and they all had a great time.

Services HR - L&D Team Visits the Carpenter Art Garden

Dec 9, 2016

The Services HR – Learning & Development team decided to give back with a day of service by supporting the Carpenter Art Garden and the FedEx Cares United Way Campaign. The Carpenter Art Garden of Memphis began with a belief in the importance of art making and one abandoned property. Through art and with the help of neighborhood children, the grittiness of a blighted lot was transformed into a vibrant garden of artwork. The Carpenter Art Garden offers children in the Binghampton community the tools to create their own "pockets of hope” through ongoing art and gardening projects.

House of Mercy

Dec 8, 2016

The House of Mercy is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2005 in Bristow, Virginia by Father Jack Fullen and Kellie Ross. What began as a prayer-centered ministry evolved into a movement of mercy where volunteers joined in prayer and service to relieve the suffering of the underprivileged, sick, and dying by performing the spiritual and corporal works of mercy. FedEx Freight Manassas selected House of Mercy, because they are a humanitarian organization dedicated to serving the hungry and anyone needing solace and care.
