Mesa Moving & Storage Ensures Homeless Shelter Can Continue Providing Meals

July 21, 2020 | 5:57pm

In the heat of the summer, during the peak of the busy season for our moving partners, we were thrilled to see Mesa Moving & Storage of Grand Junction, Colorado, answer our call to assist a local homeless shelter move its food from their existing kitchen to their new residence facility.

Now, while moving is kinda what Mesa Moving & Storage does (and they’re really good at it, by the way), it’s a little more challenging to move a pantry full of food in 100 degree heat with very little notice.  However, that’s exactly what John Moats and Brandon Brown did.

On July 11th, they arrived at the Homeward Bound Day Shelter and loaded up more than 3,600 lbs of food.  It took several hours, but the end result was worth it.  We’re excited to see Homeward Bound Day Shelter move operations in their new facility and begin serving meals to those struggling with hunger.


Mesa Moving & Storage joined our efforts in 2016 and has always been eager to help feed their community in every way possible. We are truly grateful for their support!
