It’s been a busy summer for Kate Giddings, a student in Laguna Niguel, California. Kate is part of a local non-profit called Girls with Goals. Girls with Goals is a growing community of women helping, encouraging, and celebrating each other as they work toward their personal and professional goals.
Kate and her friends from Girls for Goals decided to host a Spread The Love Food Drive to benefit a local church. Their food drive was a huge success, collecting over 350 jars of peanut butter & jelly.
Our moving partner All-Ways Moving & Storage, a National Van Lines agent, joined in to help transport all of the boxes to their local church, Saint Killians. Their pantry has been accepting food donations during this COVID-19 pandemic.
Food drives like these mean a lot during these unprecedented times. Unfortunately, over 267,000 people in Orange County are food insecure. Due to Girls with Goals and All-Ways Moving & Storage partnering together they have provided over 291 meals to those in need. We cannot thank Kate enough for taking the initiative to make a difference in her local community.
The COVID-19 Pandemic has left a massive economic impact and has drastically increased the need for emergency food assistance nationwide. Move For Hunger is actively searching for ways to meet the demand, but we're going to need your help.
