Each month, Move For Hunger highlights a moving company that has gone above and beyond with their work to fight against hunger. For December, Humboldt Moving & Storage was awarded the honor for their hard work over the holiday season.
Over Thanksgiving, the Bristol Lodge Food Pantry, in Massachusetts, was in need of food ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday for their food insecure communities. After learning of their need, Humboldt Storage & Moving donated 2,425lbs of food, equalling 2,000 meals, collected from their Thanksgiving food drive to the pantry.
But they didn't stop there! Jim Sullivan, the President of Humboldt Moving & Storage, and his family volunteered their time to help distribute the food the Saturday before Thanksgiving with the mobile market.
“Humboldt has a long history of creating meaningful partnerships that benefit members of our community,” says Jim Sullivan, president of Humboldt Storage and Moving. “We have been very successful in mobilizing the resources of our moving company here in Boston to make an impact for those in need as well as the people we serve.”
“Working with Move for Hunger on our recent food drive was the perfect fit. Because of our extensive network here in Boston which includes many real estate professionals, we were able to tap into other motivated organizations and individuals to make a significant impact this year when we feel the need for basic food items has increased."
In Massachusetts, nearly 500,000 people are food insecure, including 1 in 11 children. Every donation transport our network makes helps put food on the table for families who don’t have enough.
