FedEx and Feed the Children deliver holiday cheer to Memphis families
FedEx, Feed the Children, the Women’s Foundation of Greater Memphis, and Streets Ministries teamed up to bring a bit of holiday cheer to families in the 38126 ZIP code area of South Memphis. FedEx Cares volunteers spent the morning interacting with families and distributing 25-pound boxes of food, 15-pound boxes of household essentials, AVON products as well as toys and books to 400 Memphis families. The event was part of Feed the Children’s ‘No Holiday Hunger’ campaign to raise awareness about childhood hunger.
FedEx and the Women’s Foundation continue to collaborate to reduce poverty by 5% to strengthen the community in the 38126 ZIP code. We also have strong ties to Streets Ministries, which serves our adopt-a-school’s students (LaRose Elementary & Booker T. Washington Jr/Sr High Schools) in the neighborhood.
