Relocation Industry Titan Joins Nationwide Fight Against Hunger
Brookfield Global Relocation Services Partners With Move For Hunger
Woodridge, Ill. (December 10, 2012) - Move For Hunger is proud to announce that Brookfield Global Relocation Services has officially become a Champion Level partner for 2013. Continuing their socially conscious leadership within the relocation industry, Brookfield Global Relocation Services is demonstrating a commitment to fighting hunger.
“With more than 50 million Americans struggling to find their next meal, this partnership with Brookfield Global Relocation Services could not come at a better time,” said Adam Lowy, Executive Director of Move For Hunger. “This new relationship with a trusted global mobility leader will significantly strengthen our capacity to connect members of the relocation industry to the food banks and pantries that serve the hungry across North America.”
While one in six Americans struggles to find their next meal, one in seven relocates every year. Members of the Move For Hunger network are committed to turning every move into an opportunity to help someone in need. When a move takes place, oftentimes a family will have a pantry full of food which they would prefer not to include in their relocation. Brookfield Global Relocation Services, aligned with Move For Hunger, has partnered with their transportation suppliers offering to collect non-perishable food items from the relocating family and delivering the donations directly to local food banks.
“As one of the largest global employee relocation services providers, our company is uniquely positioned to play a key role in the Move For Hunger program,” said Rick Schwartz, president and CEO, Brookfield Global Relocation Services. “Working through our vast network of transportation companies and real estate partners, we have the ability to impact food banks in all parts of the country. Not only does our participation contribute to feeding thousands of people, it fits right into our primary objective of corporate citizenship in support of the communities in which we serve. We are as passionate about our charitable endeavors, and now our partnership with Move For Hunger, as we are about our commitment to deliver a Premier Service® experience to all of our relocation clients.”
As partners of Move For Hunger, the transportation companies aligned with Brookfield Global Relocation Services will be joining the 400 moving companies and 250 real estate professionals across 44 states that have incorporated philanthropy into their daily operations.
Move For Hunger is a non-profit organization that partners with relocation, transportation and real estate companies across North America to pick up unwanted, unopened food from those who are relocating and deliver it to local food banks. To date, Move For Hunger is working with over 650 partners in 44 states and has collected more than 830,000 pounds of food.
