In May, our friends at Darby Development Company held a fundraiser at 10 properties in South Carolina. Any resident who made a $10 donation to Move For Hunger was entered into a raffle for a chance to win a 50" HD-TV!
Twenty-five residents entered the contest and donated a grand total of $760! Erin Thompson was the lucky winner of the brand new television. All of the donations will go to support our hunger relief and food waste reduction programs.
“The Team Members and Customers of Darby Development are enjoying our partnership with Move For Hunger," said Darby's Vice President, Victoria Cowart. "What they do is a mission match for our industry -- an easy fit, an easy lift, and they’re just great to work with! It’s a winning partnership for us, and we look forward to many years of great community support efforts.”
Darby Development Company is a member of our Multi-Family Apartment Program. When residents at the participating properties move out, they are given the opportunity to donate any non-perishable food they don't want to take with them. One of our local transportation partners volunteers to pick up all of the donations and delivers them to the food bank.
Nearly 680,000 people, including 1 in 6 children, in South Carolina are food insecure. Thank you so much to Darby Development Company and their residents for this amazing contribution to the community and for their commitment to our cause.
