Each disaster is unique, which is why The Salvation Army caters their response to the circumstances and specific needs of the people most affected. FedEx proudly supports The Salvation Army in reaching survivors and other first responders with critical materials, food, and water immediately after a disaster strikes.
FedEx has donated 22 canteen trucks to The Salvation Army’s Emergency Disaster Services program since 2007, which help provide food and supplies to those affected by disaster. These trucks, supported by FedEx volunteers, also serve warm meals and hygiene kits to the homeless.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, FedEx and the Salvation Army deployed a canteen truck in Brazil from May to December, five days per week. During this time, volunteers distributed over 60,000 meals to the homeless and vulnerable families.
