FedEx Teams up with the Washington Redskins to Tackle Hunger at FedExField

Thanksgiving is approaching, and as we think about the hearty feast that awaits us, it’s important to celebrate the holiday by not just giving thanks – but showing thanks for what we have. Part of FedEx’s way of showing our thanks is by giving back to the communities in need.  For the one out of seven households across the U.S. that is food insecure, Thanksgiving has a deeper meaning.
