Logistics gives back

Here's our monthly roundup of some of the logistics community's good deeds and donations.

By DC Velocity Staff

  • FedEx Ground, the small-package ground unit of FedEx Corp., has honored 24 individuals for displaying selfless courage and promoting human welfare above and beyond basic human responsibility. Awardees, who provide pickup and delivery services, rescued people in life-threatening situations, including highway and industrial accidents, lost children, medical emergencies, and house and vehicle fires.
  • Old Dominion Freight Line Inc. donated a tractor to the Johnston Community College Truck Driving School in support of the school's driver training program for soldiers. The school's eight-week program is geared toward helping exiting military members and their spouses earn a commercial driver's license. The first of the school's six courses kicked off in August at Fort Bragg, N.C.
  • The Motorola Solutions Foundation's 2013 Innovation Generation grants will provide $4.4 million to more than 100 organizations that ignite passion and interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) subjects and careers for teachers and students, especially girls and underrepresented minorities.
