The holiday season is undeniably underway, and that means not only personal efforts to bring joy to others, but also corporate efforts. FedEx Corporation is pitching in this year with an added environmental message: two hybrid-electric trucks are traveling around the country, helping local charities along the way. The "FedEx Special Delivery" trucks are helping in drives to collect toys, food, and clothing that will be distributed by local agencies and charitable organizations. See the FedEx press release and the FedEx Special Delivery Web site.
