Hopelink loves our business partners. FedEx Cares is giving back in the community and has been committed to Hopelink’s mission for more than 15 years. When the call went out to our community partners to help the Stock the Shelves campaign in December, Jan Schiffner, FedEx Market Sales Manager for WA, OR and MN responded in an email, “count us in at FedEx.” Sharing information about the campaign with her coworkers, the team collected more than 800 pounds of food for Hopelink families and individuals.
Over the years, FedEx has continued to give back by volunteering, holding food drives and serving as a sponsor for Hopelink’s annual Reaching Out Luncheon for more than a decade. Jan shared a story about how the luncheon brings FedEx employees together:
“Ten years ago this fall I was asked to carry the torch forward for another FedEx employee that was retiring. I had never met him and just happened to sit next to him at Hopelink’s Reaching Out Luncheon. I believe it was not by chance at all that we sat together. I had been particularly moved during the video as someone I had worked with was shown as having been a recipient of one of Hopelink’s many services, and when I saw his family’s photo on the screen, both deeply moved as well as instantly both connected and committed to the good Hopelink was doing in our community. Since that time, I have been a table captain every year and have helped ensure that FedEx has continued their legacy sponsorship.”
Thank you to the FedEx Cares team for your support!
