From March 1-20, Five Doors Network, an affiliate of Keller Williams, held a “Ton of Luck” food drive at five locations across the United States. Five Doors Network challenged their employees to collect 2,000 lbs. of food - 1 ton. Not only did they meet their goal - they exceeded it! Nearly 3,000 lbs. of non-perishable food and essential items was collected overall, which will provide 2,000+ meals to families in need!
Five Doors Network is a membership group of top producing real estate teams. The COVID-19 Pandemic has led to an unprecedented situation in which many have found themselves without a source of income, and our most vulnerable populations have become even more susceptible to experiencing food insecurity. This inspired Five Door Network’s employees, members and growth partners to help.
“We wanted to focus on giving back to the communities we practice real estate in and provide certainty during a time of fear,” said Seth Campbell, Founder and CEO.
"It is our responsibility to be the local neighborhood support champions," Campbell continued. "The First Responders are tending to the sick, the fires, the emergencies. Our job is to step up and pour into the communities we serve through the toughest of circumstances. As real estate agents, we are the trusted resource for so many, being the resource connectors for our neighbors, our communities, our cities.”
Keller Williams of Clarksville, TN collected 1,117 lbs. of food and household items, Keller Williams of Fayetteville, AR collected 911 lbs., Keller Williams Daphne/Fairhope, AL collected 300 lbs., Keller Williams of Omaha, NE, and Keller Williams of Tacoma, WA each collected 200 lbs. Our partners from Bekins Northwest volunteered to pick up the donations from the Tacoma office, but Keller Williams representatives from each of the other 4 locations personally delivered their donations to the local food banks.
Five Doors growth partners, members, and employees at these locations truly appreciated being a part of such a wonderful event.
"It has been great to see everyone unit through tough times," said Arielle Kennedy, Executive Assistant in the Fayetteville office. “We collected more than 900 pounds of food and have helped so many families in our area.”
“It is our privilege to help alleviate food insecurity for families during this unsure time, especially with children out of school and most parents forced to work from home or unemployed,” said Keli Robinson, Growth Partner at the Daphne office.
There are more than 40 million Americans who are food insecure, including 1 in 6 children, and that number is increasing every day. Food banks and pantries are serving people in record numbers, and we are so proud to work with organizations like Five Doors, who recognize the urgency of the crisis and are taking action.
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 need your help.
