Moving? Don’t Throw out Food, Donate It to Move for Hunger

8 03 2012

Excel Moving & Storage is pleased to announce its three office locations in Raleigh and Greensboro, N.C., and Charleston, S.C., has joined the Move for Hunger initiative. On moving day the Allied drivers with Excel Moving & Storage will not only move out your furniture and boxes, but will take any unwanted, non-perishable food items to the local food bank, free of charge.  The Raleigh movers are excited to join the growing fleet in the Move for Hunger network along with the Greensboro movers. They will join Move for Hunger’s 250 moving companies in 40 states in the fight to end hunger.  The Charleston movers want to make a positive impact on the hunger problem in America.    

“It is rewarding to know that we are part of something that can directly impact our community,” said Jeff Hatley, vice president of sales at Excel Moving & Storage. “With one in every six Americans struggling to find their next meal and one in seven Americans relocating each year, how could we not be motivated to do our part in the fight against hunger? I encourage all families that work with us to donate their non-perishable food items to this worthy initiative and help end hunger in the Carolinas.”

The Raleigh movers will work with the Food Bank of Eastern and Central North Carolina.  The Guilford County Food Pantry looks forward to receiving donations from the Greensboro movers. Meanwhile, the Lowcountry Food Bank of South Carolina will work with the Charleston movers.  This initiative has been in operation for two years, and has already donated more than 400,000 pounds of food to families in need.
