Salvation Army Uses New Vehicle Donation to Help Homeless and Disaster Victims

May 1, 2019

She calls herself Mama Rose. She had traveled to Colorado Springs for her brother’s funeral when she had an auto accident and didn’t have the extra cash for the repairs.

Now she’s homeless, in a wheelchair, and first in line to thank volunteers from FedEx and Salvation Army for taking the time to serve a warm meal from the Salvation Army’s new Canteen vehicle.

Mama Rose is accompanied by her 6-month-old dog, Jenga Bee, as the line for meals, hygiene kits, and warm socks begins to stretch through the parking lot and into a downtown park. Jenga Bee wears a sweater knitted by a friend, and it’s not entirely clear if she is shivering because of the early spring chill or just the puppy-excitement of meeting a new friend.

Who knew some of Santa’s biggest helpers were FedEx Freight drivers?

Since Santa and Mrs. Claus can’t be everywhere before the holidays, FedEx Freight drivers, Chuck and Sarah Fiske step in to help. For the past seven years, the husband and wife duo have visited schools, daycares and nursing homes with one mission: to bring joy to children of all ages by playing the role of Santa and Mrs. Claus.

This holiday season, the Fiskes’ traveled more than 600 miles from their home in Butte, Montana to Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Tacoma, Washington to help the Christmas SPIRIT Foundation deliver Christmas trees for the Trees for Troops program.
