Shipper Contributes to Higher Education

Shipper contributes to higher education

Many individuals and corporations donate resources annually to support higher education. Such generosity helps ensure that the youth of today has a good chance at a bright future. For one shipping company, a special type of donation has helped expand student training beyond what can be learned in a traditional classroom.

FedEx has been in the process of decommissioning its Boeing 727 aircraft fleet for some time. The multi-year process replaces the aging craft with more spacious, fuel efficient models. As the company drops the 727s from their fleet, it has donated a large number of them to schools and other organizations for training purposes.

The donated aircraft provide students with hands-on training that goes beyond what can be learned exclusively in a classroom setting.

What other types of equipment do you think could be donated by corporations to improve student education?
