Residents at Gateway 505, a multi-family apartment community in Salt Lake City, recently donated more than 200 lbs. of food as part of our COVID-19 relief campaign! That's the equivalent of 170 meals! All of the donations were delivered to the Utah Food Bank, courtesy of our friends from Mountain States Moving & Storage.
As a member of our Multi-Family Program, Gateway 505, a Greystar property, asks all of its residents to donate their non-perishable food when they move out. When a resident gives notice that they will be moving out, the Gateway 505 staff provides them with a food collection bag. Residents are asked to place any unopened, non-perishable food that they'd like to donate into the bag, and then simply leave it in the apartment unit. After they had collected several bags, the team at Gateway 505 contacted us and we arranged for the donations to be picked up and delivered to the food bank. It's that simple.
More than 1,500 multi-family apartment communities are now members of the Move For Hunger network and together they have provided 127,500 meals to families across the United States. Thank you to everyone at Gateway 505 for your commitment to our cause during this difficult time.
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.
