We are, of course, extremely thankful to have a network of more than 950 moving companies that have committed to reducing food waste and fighting hunger, but we are always extra appreciative of the ones who are willing to lend a helping hand at a moment's notice. That's exactly what happened when Anchor Moving & Storage, an Atlas Van Lines agent, stepped up to help their neighbors in need last month.
Balford Farms had collected a plethora of chocolate milk that they wanted to donate to their local food pantry, Touch New Jersey -- nearly 3 tons worth! Unfortunately, neither Balford Farms nor Touch NJ have the ability to transport such large quantities. When we reached out to Anchor Moving & Storage, based in nearby Moorestown, NJ, they were more than excited lend a helping hand! On April 18, their crew delivered 61 cases of half-gallon bottles of chocolate milk to Miguel's Pharmacy in Camden, where the beverages were immediately distributed to families in need. This was an especially thoughtful gesture during Easter weekend! Eleven days later, Anchor delivered another 98 cases of half-pints.
Thank you so much to Anchor Moving & Storage for delivering a grand total of 5,590 lbs. of chocolate milk to your neighbors in need! Special thanks go out to Balford Farms, Touch New Jersey Food Pantry, and Miguel's Pharmacy, as well, for your assistance!
