Move for Hunger

Move for HungerHolman Moving Moves for HungerSocial media is great for so many reasons. It’s perfect for staying in touch with friends both near and far, it’s great for storing photos and videos and sharing them, it’s helpful for business both new and old AND it’s a great way to spread awareness and raise money for a good cause. Those of you who are active on social media may have seen videos of friends and coworkers recently completing the “Ice Bucket Challenge” to help strike out ALS. While there are varying opinions on the validity of the challenge, the statistics speak for themselves. Since July 29 of this year, donations to the ALS Association have reached 13.3 million dollars, up from 1.7 million dollars during the same time period last year. That’s incredible! Reading about the statistics and the challenge, and participating myself, got me thinking more about another cause worthy of recognition. Move for Hunger has been near and dear to our hearts here at Holman for years now and I thought today would be just as good a day as any to give it some attention.

Holman Moving Delivers 474 Pounds of Food to Delaware and New Jersey Food Banks

Holman Moving Moves for HungerWe have a lot to be thankful for here at Holman Moving Systems. As part of our commitment to Move for Hunger, we ran our second annual holiday campaign to collect as many food donations as possible for our local food banks. We are thrilled to report that our offices in New Castle, Delaware and Hackensack, New Jersey together raised 474 pounds worth of food for the Food Bank of Delaware and the Center for Food Action in New Jersey, which tops last year’s collections by 74 pounds. More importantly, these donations will provide 360 meals to families in need in Delaware and the NJ and NY metro market.

Move Out Hunger this Holiday Season!

It’s that time of year again! By now you probably know we are committed to Move for Hunger, a non-profit organization that works with moving companies across the country to pick up unwanted, unopened food from those who are relocating and deliver it to local food banks across the country. We were honored to be the first mover in Delaware, and among the first movers in New Jersey, to join the program. To date, we have dropped more than 600 pounds of food to our food banks – the Food Bank of Delaware in New Castle, DE and the Center for Food Action in Englewood, New Jersey.
