Groveport Ground hosted an Arbor Day Foundation tree planting event at Pickerington Ponds Metro Park. We were joined by staff from GCOH/5432 and ECOL/429. Together we planted 79 large trees and 73 shrubs. Though the Ohio spring weather was cold, wet, and windy, FedEx showed up ready and eager to help. The park is a beautiful setting that is popular with bird watchers with more than 260 species seen. Even in the dreary weather, all involved were happy to be contributing to the ongoing forestation of the park.
Volunteerism: The Core of FedEx Cares

Giving back is part of the FedEx culture. Team members support our charitable investments and local community needs by dedicating their time where they live and work around the world. Volunteerism is more than a one-time event or delivery.
