The United Methodist Disaster Relief Warehouse in Decatur, Alabama responds to countless natural disasters per month, including tornadoes, storms, hurricanes, earthquakes, and the latest epidemic, Ebola. They hand out food, building materials, birthing kits, layette kits, school supplies, health & hygiene kits, sewing kits and cleaning buckets with, you guessed it, our trash bags!
The entire operation is staffed and run by an army of 900 rotating volunteers with an average age of 74. This is a kind, giving group that genuinely promises on their website: “If a group [of volunteers] is coming in the winter, a pound cake would be graciously shared with all.” But don’t let their age fool you. This is a capable, group of action.
No. It’s not “free.” (That’s too obvious.) What’s the word? “Fast.” People want their order fast. They want it shipped fast, the same day preferably, and for it to arrive the next. At the very latest, two days. If they have to wait three days, forget it. You’ve lost that customer.
Shipping giants UPS and FedEx recognize this demand for urgency and both carriers have gone the extra mile by offering same day delivery. However, if you can wait till the next day, there’s a slew of other delivery services that all smell of speed for you to choose from, including First Overnight®, Priority Overnight®, Standard Overnight®, Express Critical and Next Day Air Early A.M.
