FedEx Ground ZJON/0724 Adopted a Family

Dec 22, 2019

FedEx Ground from Jonesboro Arkansas Adopted a Family for Christmas this year. Here are a couple pics from our “Adopt a Family” for Xmas. The station ended up raising over $1700 for the Sheppard’s family. We brought them up on Sat. 22nd to the station and had them open presents. The family had been in and out of the hospital the first 2 weeks of December so they were not able to have a Xmas with their kids so we at FedEx made it happen for them.

I am extremely thankful for the staff, ph, drivers, and CSPs that donated and helped get this family a Christmas they deserve.

The Chew Family Christmas

Dec 21, 2019

Memphis Linehaul Department and Memphis Safety Department, teamed up this year to bring holiday joy to a family in need. The Chew family consists of six children, ages 2-10 years (three boys and 2 girls), a mother and grandparents. The mother recently had to move back in with her parents due to circumstances beyond the children's control. The grandfather is the only bread winner in the family which created financial stress for the family.

This past weekend MSP Freight went out and cleaned up our portion of Highway 36, just right outside the MSP Service Center. Overall we had 21 volunteers, ranging from our Service Center Manager, Leadership, City Drivers and Dock Employees. We gathered at the MSP Service Center for breakfast and to watch a Safety Video before we headed out for the day. We cleaned up a total of 3 miles of highway and filled up 84 bags. This was a great day to do good in our Community.
