For the fifth year in a row, the National Association of Senior Move Managers (NASMM) held their "100 Can Challenge." Members of their network were encouraged to hold food drives and collect at least 100 cans of non-perishable food to show their support for Move For Hunger. This year, 33 companies across the United States participated in the 100 Can Challenge and collected more than 7,000 lbs. of food, a new record!
A huge thank you goes out to everyone who helped organize these food drives, those who donated, and all of our movers who took the time to deliver donations to various food banks. A grand total of 7,064 lbs. of food was delivered to food banks and pantries nationwide, that's enough to provide nearly 5,900 meals!
One of the participants, Comfort Moves LLC, decided that they weren't going to stop at just 100 cans. This Houston-based senior move management company was able to double their 100 can goal, and deliver both food and toiletries to their local food bank! Their CEO, MaryLynne Cappelletti, said that her company is committed to fighting hunger year-round.
"Many of our clients have pantries and freezers full of food they don't want to move to their new homes," Cappelletti said. "Going forward, we will ask them to donate that food and we will then happily deliver their donations to East Spring Branch Food Pantry in their names."
It's always great to see so many different members of our network coming together for the fight against hunger!
