On Friday, October 13 members of Team Tempe (ZTMP 852) went out to help clean up the streets of Tempe. Our station is aligned with the City of Tempe and the Adopt A Street program. The street that is designated for our clean-up is right outside of our station. During this clean-up, we went out to make sure the mile long area was free of debris. During the clean- up, members were able to fill up two trash bags. The ZTMP station is committed to making sure our environment and surrounding areas are clean.

Bringing Smiles to kids in the hospital - FedEx Office Plano, TX

Oct 18, 2017

The Quality & Operational Effectiveness team saw a need in the local area where our headquarters is located, Plano, TX. Many of the children from infant to teens visit The Children's Medical hospital near our building. Many children have long stays at the hospital to become well and need things to occupy their time. So we filled 50 purple totes with activity supplies to help them out.

The coats will be given to those in need.
Package handlers, full time staff, driver and Independent Service Providers all contributed to this coat drive!
