FedEx & Operation Warm

Operation Warm and FedEx Cares have collaborated to deliver more than 500,000 coats to children across the country. In 2018, FedEx volunteers gifted 7,500 brand new winter coats directly to children in the United States and Canada.
More than 800 FedEx team members volunteered their time at 16 Coat Giving Celebrations. At each event – in just four hours – FedEx team members helped to instill a spirit of support and hope in the communities where they live and work.

"A lot of kids were dancing out of the gym because they were so happy."

FedEx + Operation Warm Volunteer Coat Event Highlights
“It’s such a blessing to give back in the communities where FedEx team members really live and work. Being able to go to a school in need and deliver brand new coats is such a gift. And to be able to know that these kids are going to school warm and happy; you just can’t beat that feeling.”
