Volunteering is more than a one-time event or delivery for FedEx. It is a culture that permeates its more than 450,000 employees across the globe. Recently, employees from the Houston Field Sales office hosted a Purple Tote program as part of the FedEx Cares campaign in which they filled 100 purple totes with new books. We are grateful that they partnered with us to serve children throughout the Houston community, empowering them with the essential tools to be strong and confident readers.
“The theme behind our FedEx Cares campaign is providing for those in need within our communities,” said Rebecca Callahan, District Sales Manager of FedEx Services. “Our FedEx culture fosters a commitment to putting our people first, which doesn’t stop with the employee, it also encompasses our family and community. We appreciate our new partnership with the Barbara Bush Literacy Foundation and look forward to future opportunities to give back.”
FedEx is investing $200 million in over 200 global communities, including Houston, by 2020 to create opportunities and deliver solutions for people around the world. We thank them for their commitment and serving as a point of light for others to follow.
