Our team decided to help the Volunteers of America this year for the FedEx Cares United Way Campaign. Volunteers of America is an nationwide charity organization that helps our local community by providing a homeless shelter, meals, and clothing to the Reno/Sparks area. To assist the charity, we combined both of our Reno buildings, 895 & 896, to collect 877 pairs of socks from package handlers, drivers, management and office staff. All of these were placed inside our Purple Tote Bags and were delivered to Volunteers of America.
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.
