FedEx helps the People to People Food Bank in Nanuet, NY
FedEx team members from the Metro North and Palisades Districts made a tremendous contribution on FedEx Cares Day to the People to People Food Bank in Nanuet, NY. The team donated 25 purple tote bags that totaled 170 pounds of food, valued at $476. They then spent the day sorting and organizing the pantry, clothing donations, and even the mailroom.
