We are so excited to announce that more than $10,500 were raised to benefit Move For Hunger at the 1st annual New Jersey Truck Pull, which was held on August 4 at Crown Relocations’ offices in Keasbey, NJ.
Never heard of a truck pull before? Here’s how it works: teams of 5-10 compete to see who can pull a moving truck 100 feet in the fastest time. And trust us, it’s as much of a challenge as it sounds!
The day started off with some rain showers in the morning, but ultimately the skies cleared and it turned into a pretty hot day for our truck pull teams. Imagine how strenuous pulling a 14,000+ lbs. moving truck would be...and now imagine pulling all of that weight in this humid summer weather!
None of this would have been possible without our generous sponsors! We are so grateful for the support from Victory Packaging, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, GDK, PetRelocation, Wheaton World Wide Moving, Thurston Transportation, and AIT Worldwide Logistics.
A huge thank you to Crown Relocations for hosting this event and being one of our most valued members! Since joining our network in 2010, they have collected more than 205,00 lbs. of food, providing more than 171,000 meals to families in need! Your dedication to the fight against hunger and food insecurity is truly inspiring!
We would also like to express our gratitude to our Truck Pull MVP and Crown Relocations' general manager, Bob Leotti, for all of his help with organizing this event! From handling all the event logistics over at Crown to spreading the word throughout the community, this event would not have been such a success without you!
Beyond raising money for a great cause, this truck pull event helped us raise awareness about hunger and food insecurity in America & expose more people to Move For Hunger’s mission!
We can not wait to see what next year has in store! We are fortunate to have incredible partners across the country who help make events like this a reality. If you’re interested in holding a fundraiser for Move For Hunger in your city, please let us know!
