Each month, we love highlighting one of the moving companies in our network for their extraordinary commitment to fighting hunger in their community. Who won our heart this month? Northshore Moving Company, a United Van Lines agent located in Hammond, Louisiana, has been named February's Mover of the Month!
In 2021, we have completed so many food drives and food transports thanks to the help of our amazing movers. However, Northshore Moving has stood out amongst them all. On February 17, they answered a call from North Shore Food Bank and assisted in a food transport of 9,650 pounds! This food rescue provided 8,041 meals.
In Louisiana, over 750,000 people are struggling with hunger, with 270,000 of them being children. To make things worse, this past year two winter storms have wreaked havoc across the southern part of the United States. Northshore Moving said they knew they were needed.
“We work very closely with the nonprofits in our community, so we get firsthand insight to the struggles of our neighbors. In this case, we were honored to partner with a local food bank to secure almost 10,000 pounds of food that was desperately needed within the community. We’re scheduled to pick up another 10,000 pounds soon!” said Christopher Calamari of Northshore Moving Company.
Since joining the Move for Hunger team in 2019, Northshore Moving Company has collected a total of 15,401 pounds of food, providing almost 13,000 meals to those in need. “Partnering with Move For Hunger allows us to join in the mission of moving companies all over the country working together to reduce food waste, and fight hunger in our local community,” said Christopher Calamari. Thank you so much, Northshore Moving Company, for doing your part during these difficult times.
