Each month, we recognize one of our outstanding movers for going above and beyond in the fight against hunger. For March, Dodge Moving and Storage won that honor for providing over 6,000 meals to local food insecure communities.
Located in Missouri, the Mayflower Van Lines agent transported over 7,200 lbs from the ArCANtecture event at the Unigroup Conference in early March. The donations were delivered to the St. Louis Area Food Bank.
ArCANtecture is a team building event hosted by Move For Hunger, where employees of an organization create buildings out of cans of food. These structures are judged based on creativity, the amount of food used, and the stability of the design. The winning team receives medals and secures bragging rights for the rest of the year! The food used to create the structures is then donated to a food bank of the winning team’s choice!
Dodge Moving and Storage has been part of the Move For Hunger network since 2014, and has helped collect and transport more than 15,700 lbs of donations to local food banks and pantries. That will provide over 13,100 meals! They participate in the fight against hunger through donations transports, as well as hosting their own food drives! Their Thanksgiving Food Drive collected nearly 1,250 lbs of food for those in need.
“We were motivated to join the Move For Hunger network based on the high need we see for those struggling to support themselves, and their families, for a basic necessity of putting food on their table,” said Barb Willbrand, Director of Office Administration.
“It is especially important to give back to others right now due to the inflation increase in our economy in 2022. Community outreach and charity support is very important to the Dodge Team. We enjoy the comradery this allows us to experience as a team, and the satisfaction we feel when we know we have made a difference with our efforts.”
We are so thankful for Dodge Moving and Storage and their dedication to fighting hunger, especially since over 800,000 people are food insecure in Missouri. Congratulations on being named Mover of the Month for March!
