Part of the mission at Gentle Giant Moving Company is to be a positive member of the communities we serve. To assist with this effort, Gentle Giant joined a national partnership last year with Move For Hunger, a non-profit organization that works with relocation companies to collect non-perishable food items and delivers the items to food banks all across North America. This partnership has allowed Gentle Giant to make a huge impact on every community we serve across the country by helping collect food to help feed the hungry families.
With the support of Move For Hunger, Gentle Giant is able to help our customers donate thousands of pounds of food simply by explaining the program before the move and leaving them with an empty box to fill in the kitchen. Gentle Giant collects these donation boxes after the on-load and transports them to food banks at no charge.
Being a committed partner to Move For Hunger has given Gentle Giant unique opportunities throughout the year to get involved with community events. These events, in addition to our customers’ donations, gave Gentle Giant a total of over 56,000 lbs of food, which is roughly 47,000 meals for those in need!
These are some of the biggest highlights from Gentle Giant’s first year as a National Partner:
- Philadelphia Moving Company Gentle Giant Saves 8,000 Pounds of Corn
- Gentle Giant Moving of Brooklyn Nets Nearly 3,000 LBS of Food at NYC Triathlon
- May Mover of the Month: Gentle Giant Moving Company of Washington, D.C.
- A Giant Effort: Nearly 9 Tons of Food Rescued in Seattle
This coming year will add even more events in local communities, including Rock N Roll Marathons, Grocery Store Fill-A-Truck Food Drives, and more!
