FedEx, like many other socially responsible companies, is pitching in with our resources as best we can to help fight Covid-19. The most obvious way we are able to help is by making our network available to relief organizations through in-kind transportation support. There are a number of these organizations that we support year-round, across the globe. In addressing the pandemic, we’re helping them get personal protective gear, equipment, blood and medications where needed most in a fast, efficient and reliable way.
During the current coronavirus pandemic, we are hearing about so many wonderful acts of kindness and about nonprofits and companies that are dedicating resources to help. These organizations, and the teams that are making things happen, are driven by individuals with big hearts and community spirit.
