As a member of our Multi-Family Apartment Program, residents at Crest on Providence Apartments all have the opportunity to donate their food when they move. When a resident gives notice that they will be moving out, the property management team at Crest on Providence provides them with a recyclable food collection bag. The residents are encouraged to place any unopened, non-perishable food that they would like to donate into the bag and leave it in the unit before they go. It's a simple, safe, and sustainable way to reduce food waste and fight hunger.
Our partners from Gentle Giant Moving Company in Charlotte volunteered to pick up the bags and delivered them all to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina. A grand total of 85 lbs. of food was donated, which will provide 70 meals to families, children, seniors, and vulnerable communities during the COVID-19 crisis.
Food banks all across the country are facing an unprecedented demand right now. Thank you so much to the staff & residents at Crest on Providence Apartments, and to Robert Farnum and the crew at Gentle Giant Moving Company, for doing your part to support your community during these difficult times!
The COVID-19 Pandemic has left a massive economic impact and has drastically increased the need for emergency food assistance nationwide. Move For Hunger is actively searching for ways to meet the demand, but we're going to need your help.
