FedEx + Operation Warm
In Fall 2016, FedEx and Operation Warm collaborated for two team member volunteer events to provide students in Memphis, TN brand new winter coats. In 2017, we collaborated on a remarkable mission; together we delivered brand new winter coats to children in need across the country. The coats were funded through a generous donation from FedEx and hand delivered by FedEx team members to children around the country.
FedEx team members brought this mission to life by volunteering their time at 10 coat giving events across the country. 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.
9 Communities Served
6,800 Coats Gifted
