FedEx Office three year grant and Volunteer Project
The official grand opening of FedEx Office’s new headquarters was held on Wednesday, Oct. 28 in Plano with hundreds of guests invited to tour their beautiful new building. In addition to comments by Mayor Harry LaRosiliere and FedEx CEO, Brian Philips, there was a special presentation to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Collin County. CEO Philips announced a three year grant of $50,000 per year for the next three years to be used for expansion of mentoring and academic programs as well as providing volunteer opportunities for FedEx Office employees to help at BGCCC facilities. On Thursday, Oct. 29 over 170 FedEx Office employees worked at the Plano Branch helping with improvements to the facility inside and out. The major project was updating the Technology Center with new flooring, painting walls, building computer cabinets and preparing for the installation of new computers. Volunteers also painted many other rooms, installed ceiling tiles, and worked outside the building putting in plants and landscaping.
A special Thanks to this organization and the hundreds of volunteers who saved the BGCCC thousands of dollars with all their improvements to our Plano Branch.
