Corwin donated a kidney to help fellow FedEx team member Mark Orris (right), who suffered from a hereditary condition that caused his kidneys to fail.
It was no empty gesture when Glenda Corwin told longtime friend and fellow FedEx employee Mark Orris she'd give him a kidney if he asked.
He asked, and she gave, during surgery in a Cleveland, Ohio hospital on March 16.
On Tuesday, FedEx Corp. executive vice president T. Michael Glenn presented Corwin with the company's Humanitarian Award for a selfless deed demonstrating "the true fabric of FedEx, what distinguishes us from other businesses."
