On October 22nd a group of individuals wanted to give back to the community by helping the Blount County, TN Habitat for Humanity office. Habitat gets many volunteers to go out in the community to refurbish, paint and construct homes which leaves precious little time for the office to be maintained. This collection of volunteers from FedEx Freight at the KNX center asked what we could do to help and help free up time for them. Along with the executive director of Habitat for Humanity in Blount county Kathy Jackson we took on the challenge of painting their office building for them.
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.
