Operation Warm Carrier Angels-Office Basics

SHARE:

A number of transportation carriers serve as Operation Warm angels. FedEx, Ironlinx, New Century, Office Basics, Office Movers and Pilot Freight support the logistics of delivering new winter coats.

This year, more than 100,000 children in need received the gift of warmth this winter thanks to the kind gestures of drivers from all of our carrier angels.  Each time they picked up or made a delivery, they were smiling and willing to help.

While all of the deliveries are important and a number of fantastic stories can be shared, one in particular stands out. Office Basics was making a delivery of nearly 4,000 coats to a location in Philadelphia when the skies published up and the rain poured down. The organization had a few volunteers on hand to help unload but not enough to beat the cold rain from wetting the boxes. Without hesitation, the 4 man Office Basics crew jumped right in line to get the boxes inside. They certainly could have remained on the truck once the pallets were off-loaded but instead, they lent a hand and did it with smiling faces. This description fits EVERY delivery; always willing to lend a hand.
