Each month, we highlight one of the moving companies in our network for their extraordinary commitment to fighting hunger in their community. We are excited to announce that Just-In Time Moving & Storage, has been named our Mover of the Month for April 2020!
Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Just-In Time Moving & Storage has been delivering emergency food bags from the United Food Bank's warehouse in Mesa, AZ to its drive through distribution center. The crew has been making bi-weekly deliveries for the Food Bank, which has seen an exponential increase in the number of people who need assistance.
In April, Just-In Time Moving transported more than 127,000 lbs. of food, which provided approximately 105,000 meals to children, families, seniors, and vulnerable communities who are facing hunger during the pandemic.
"Just-In Time Moving & Storage was founded on the principles of treating others like we want to be treated," said George Phillips, Business Development Manager. "Giving back to our community is a big part of that, and Move For Hunger gives us the platform to be able to help the most."
Maricopa County has one of the highest rates of food insecurity in the country. More than 570,000 people in the county, including 1 in 5 children, were facing hunger even before COVID-19 shut down businesses, closed schools, and disrupted the food supply chain. It's clear that we'll be dealing with the impact of the coronavirus for months to come, and Just-In Time Moving & Storage has pledged to help for as long as they have to.
"We are very grateful that the American Moving & Storage Association introduced us to Move For Hunger," Phillips said. "We look forward to working together for a long time to help reduce food waste and fight hunger."
In addition to the award, Just-In time Moving & Storage will also be receiving Move For Hunger truck decals for their entire fleet.
Congratulations to Just-In Moving & Storage on this much-deserved recognition! Thank you for helping us fight hunger during this difficult time.
