Love Elementary School received a great surprise right before school started this year with a generous donation of school supplies from the local FedEx office. Senior manager Michael Sarkissian, and Operations Managers Matthew Timmerman and William Long, delivered backpacks, notebooks, pencils, health supplies and headphones to the school.
“We feel it is important to give back to the community and support local youth. The donations came from the employees and their families at FedEx Jamestown location. We chose Love Elementary School because we felt as though we could impact the greatest amount of children in that area.”
The donation was done as part of FedEx Cares 50 by 50, which is the company’s journey to positively impact 50 million people around the world by their 50th anniversary in 2023. They will accomplish this by using the business and logistics expertise and the passion of their team members to help solve some of the world’s problems.
Love School is very grateful for the donation for their students.
“What a pleasant surprise it was when we received a call from our local FedEx office asking when they could drop off a delivery of school supplies, which were generously donated by local FedEx employees,” said Love Elementary School Principal Cindy Johnson. “ Our students will benefit from the thoughtful and caring donations. It is wonderful to have those in our community stepping up to assist others! All of us at Love School appreciate FedEx.”
