16 Apr A Partnership to be Proud of: Move for Hunger
One of the many events we attend each year is the annual American Moving and Storage Associationconference. As we walked the floor of the exhibition hall this year and networked with customers, prospects and potential partners, we had the good fortune to meet the incredible team from Move for Hunger.
The connection between the non-profit and moving is one that is rooted in founder Adam Lowy’s family, who has owned a moving company for over 90 years. The organization’s network of participating movers pick-up unwanted, non-perishable food items from individuals and families who are moving and deliver them to local food banks. It’s a simple concept and one that has provided over 1.3 million pounds of food (enough for one million meals) to food banks nationwide in just three years of operation. Originally concerned with getting members due to limited resources, Move for Hunger now boasts more than 500 moving companies in its network, covering 47 states. And, Move for Hunger also recently expanded its reach into real estate.
Inspired and – pardon the bad pun – moved by our conversations with the Move for Hunger team we immediately committed our support as a Signature Partner. Right now, we’re just getting started on a few programs we can activate locally to support our food banks and we’re encouraging our partners to also lend their support to such an incredibly great cause. Stay tuned for more updates! We are thrilled to have met the Move for Hunger team and we look forward to activating locally and helping spread the word.
