OCALA, FL — FedEx managers from around Florida and as far away as Pittsburgh volunteered at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Marion County in February as part of their commitment to community service. About a dozen managers spent the day painting in the Dr. H.L. Harrell Teen Center Unit in Ocala.
The team of managers led by Mr. Martinez meets regularly to study ways to improve customer service at local FedEx stations. “We have a meeting once a month throughout the state and we usually try to incorporate a community service event as part of our meeting,” said Byron Martinez, a Senior Manager at FedEx in Miami. His team has served Boys & Girls Clubs in Tampa, Orlando as well as North Carolina.
“We we appreciate the Club letting us come over,” Mr. Martinez said. “It brings us back to reality. We are blessed and fortunate to have a job, and to have the opportunity to help and give back.”
