DALLAS – FedEx Office announced that the company is hiring some unconventional holiday help – from some of the NFL’s most talented players. FedEx Office is recruiting NFL players in six cities across the United States to help customers pack and ship their holiday gifts.
The announcement comes as part of the FedEx Office “Pack and Ship with the Pros” promotion, which gives customers across the country a chance to win a trip to Super Bowl XLIV, tickets to the 2010 Pro Bowl and other prizes, by simply signing up and shipping their gifts and everyday packages at any FedEx Office this season.
To kick off the program, NFL players will huddle with team members at FedEx Office locations in Dallas, Houston, Chicago, Miami, San Francisco and Washington, D.C. to learn how to pack, ship and deliver a winning holiday season for its customers. During the multi-city event, individuals will have the opportunity for some of their favorite players to pack and ship their items, as well as getting the chance to win autographed NFL merchandise just for stopping by the centers.
“This is a fun, unexpected way to interact with fans during the holiday shopping season, and I’m looking forward to learning from the real pros,” said Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten. “I’m usually focused on delivering a great on-field performance, but if everything goes well, I just might try my hand at delivering packages.”
The FedEx Office Pack and Ship with the Pros promotion is a national sweepstakes that runs from now through December 31. For each qualifying package sent during that time, FedEx Office customers will be given a code printed on their receipts, which can be entered online at http://www.fedex.com/rewards for a chance to win one of dozens of prizes, including a trip to Super Bowl XLIV, the 2010 Pro Bowl or a $100 Visa Gift card.
