Each month, we highlight one of the moving companies in our network for their extraordinary commitment to fighting hunger in their community. We are excited to announce that Quality Move Management of Vancouver, an Allied Van Lines agent, has been named our Mover of the Month for January 2019!
Quality Move Management's (QMM) four branches have combined to collect more than 120,500 lbs. of food since 2012 — enough to provide 100,000 meals.
One of the big keys to QMM’s success is their annual holiday food drive. In 2017, they collected more than 52,000 lbs. of food, which is an incredible accomplishment! Yet, QMM wasn’t satisfied, and they pledged that they’d be able to do even better in 2018.
From November 1-December 28, QMM’s branches in Brampton, Calgary, Edmonton, and Vancouver collected donations of peanut butter, tuna, canned fruit/vegetables, and other non-perishable items to help provide meals for their neighbors in need. Over the course of those 2 months QMM’s clients, owner-operators, and suppliers donated more than 57,400 lbs. of food, nearly 47,000 lbs. of which was collected by the Vancouver branch!
“We at QMM make a conscious effort to give back to the communities in which we operate,” said Tim Nager, President of QMM. “We encourage volunteerism in our company and I was confident that with our company’s resources and passionate employees, we would be capable of something significant in terms of an overall contribution.”
“We strive to make a positive impact on our customers and in our communities,” said Roy Phelps, Chief Commercial Officer of QMM. “We’re humbled by the opportunity to help so many families fight food insecurity and we are fortunate to have amazing clients and vendors that really made this donation possible.”
In addition to the award, Quality Move Management will also be receiving Move For Hunger truck decals for their entire fleet.
Congratulations to Quality Move Management on this much-deserved recognition! Thank you for helping us reduce fight hunger in Vancouver and all across Canada!
