To be awarded, the community named has gone above and beyond, and we want to highlight all of the amazing work that is being done to help fight hunger! 

For September of 2022, Move For Hunger is excited to announce that Cortland Bear Creek is our Community of the Month! We are so happy to have Cortland Bear Creek in our network of amazing companies, communities, movers and more! Cortland Bear Creek is managed by JVP Management and is located in Euless, Texas.

Cortland Bear Creek joined the Move For Hunger network back in May and has helped collect and donate nearly 850 lbs of food - over 700 meals! - to help feed their community! This September, Cortland Bear Creek held a Can Castle food drive where event participants brought in canned food donations, which were then used to creatively structure castles. Donations were then transported by Budd Van Lines - Southeast Operation Branch, part of Budd Van Lines

“I am so proud of my team and our community for being so involved in the food drive and so willing and eager to assist and give as much as they were able to help others and very proud to work for a company that encourages and allows us to participate in such a great program," said Trish Jenco, Community Manager. "We had such a great experience that the team has already started planning another food drive for the upcoming holidays.

We are so grateful for Cortland Bear Creek and all of their hard work this month. We’re excited for what food drives they’ll plan in the future with our partnership!

In Texas, more than 3.7 million people, including 1 in 6 children, are food insecure. Move For Hunger is working hard to eliminate hunger in Texas. Since our inception in 2009, we’ve delivered over 2 million lbs - more than 1.6 million meals - of food, with over 21,000 lbs, over 17,000 meals, in 2022 alone.
