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 2020!
The food drive that Quality Move Management is being honored for was actually held in November and December, but the results were just too outstanding to ignore!
For the third year in a row, QMM held a holiday food drive at their offices in Brampton, Calgary, Edmonton, and Vancouver. And, once again, the 4 branches combined to collect an ENORMOUS amount of food. This year, more than 62,000 lbs. of food was donated overall, which was a new record and nearly 5,000 more lbs. than they collected in 2018! Thanks to Quality Move Management's incredibly generous team, nearly 52,000 meals were provided to Canadians who are food insecure.
Although all of the locations made an impact, the Vancouver crew once again stood head and shoulders above the rest by bringing in more than 38,000 lbs. of food, which was more than 2x than the next closest branch (Edmonton, 16,517)!
The food drive ended on December 28, and we didn't get the results until after the new year. Call it a technicality if you must, but Quality Move Management was once again the clear choice for January's Mover of the Month!
During this food drive's 3 year history, QMM has collected more than 171,000 lbs. of food. According to Parthiv Pandya, QMM's Marketing Specialist, giving back to the community is an obligation they take seriously.
"We believe giving back to the community is a crucial part of being an ethical business," Pandya said. "Therefore, we strive to make a positive impact on our customers and in our communities. The fulfilling feeling of giving back and contributing to society is unparalleled."
In addition to the award, Quality Move Management of Vancouver 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 food waste and fight hunger all across Canada!
