Care Packet

Dec 7, 2016

This year, our team of FedEx Ground employees located in Montgomery, Al decided to help our local United Way center as part of the FedEx Cares United Way Campaign.

To help with the effort, employees donated imperishable items and placed them in a box and then once the Purple Tote Bags arrived, we distributed the items evenly in each bag.
