Losing one’s eyeglasses in the wake of a destructive storm is disheartening for anyone and crippling for some. Thankfully, in Martha’s case, the American Red Cross was on hand after a hurricane formed in the Gulf of Mexico. Displaced in a hotel room, Martha, a vision-impaired senior, needed access to essentials like food, water and clothing, but also another critical item - her eyeglasses. Putting to work our decades long collaboration, FedEx and the Red Cross saw to it that Martha’s glasses were replaced overnight.
We provide the Red Cross with complimentary access to our network to get critically needed items where they need to go, both before and after storms and other disasters.
