INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — FedeEx made a special delivery on Thursday to an organization that helps those in need.

The Salvation Army Indiana Division received a new disaster response vehicle during a special celebration Thursday morning. Troy Riggs Directory of Public Safety for Indianapolis and Vice President for FedEx David Leech were among the guest speakers.

FedEx has donated 20 disaster vehicles to The Salvation Army. The vehicles serve on the front lines of disaster and can serve up to 2,00 meals a day. The vehicles helped during the southern Indiana tornado outbreak a few years ago.

“We are so humbled to receive such a generous gift from FedEx,” said Major Bob Webster Divisional Commander for The Salvation Army Indiana Division. “Being able to respond quickly and effectively serve the victims of a disaster is something we take a lot of pride in. This vehicle will help The Salvation Army continue to do that in years to come.”
