FedEx special delivery of blankets for Christmas

January 3, 2012

blanketA small shipment, but one with a lot of heart surrounding it.  We received a request from Mimi Gallagher in Maple Grove, MN asking for FedEx to help ship blankets to an Indian Reservation in Manderson, SD.  Her 12 year old daughter, Rose, had seen a special on the extreme poverty.  She rallied her friends to make 170 blankets for a special delivery before the Christmas holiday break for the local school children.  Mimi sent a local news link on how the project became a reality.

The blankets shipped out of Maple Grove on Friday, December 11th.  We were indeed honored to make this special delivery in time for Christmas.
