FedEx Lends Their Support to Japan Relief

Friday, April 1, 2011

FedEx has a long history of supporting survivors of natural disasters worldwide. They’ve even partnered with us during many of our local and international relief efforts.

We want to express our gratitude to them yet again, as FedEx has committed $1 million to support the Japan disaster relief work of several non-profit organizations, including $100,000 to The Salvation Army.

Their donation will come in the form of in-kind transportation, which will be a huge help to our work. It’s usually extremely expensive and inefficient to ship materials long distance when they can be bought locally to the disaster site. But there are some things, such as technologies, medical supplies, specialized items, or scarce materials, that are not readily available and must be transported from afar.

The Salvation Army in Japan is working diligently at several sites assisting survivors. Besides blankets, they have not yet requested additional materials from our Salvation Army World Service Office (SAWSO) here in the United States. If and when they do express additional needs over the course of rebuilding, we are prepared to respond quickly.

We are extremely grateful to FedEx, whose donation will go a long way in supporting Japan recovery.

During times of disaster, The Salvation Army provides relief in the form of warm meals, snacks and beverages to families and individuals who have lost everything. Relief can also mean basic materials such as clothes, blankets, and toiletries. Relief can be as simple as providing a presence, a hug, or a prayer.

Relief can also mean a new home for a family in need!
