We were having a somewhat difficult time finding a location for FedEx Cares Day when the Newark YMCA came up. For 135 years, the Newark YMCA has served the community by providing programs for health, housing, recreation, and education. Upon visiting and meeting their dedicated staff, there was no question that the FedEx team had to help! When we realized the number of homeless people they house, we knew we had to use our Purple Tote Campaign to provide assistance.
Volunteerism: The Core of FedEx Cares

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.
