We were in the midst of serving dinner to about 45 hungry and poverty stricken people, when I saw the Harrington trucks pull up. At first, I had no idea what was going on. I watched as moving men unloaded the moving trucks with cartons of food.

Leading moving enterprise, Harrington Moving & Storage initiated a state wide food drive. Harrington collected canned and packaged foods, and delivered it to local soup kitchens.
Harrington is notably recognized for its various charity endeavors. The company seeks to initiate altruistic projects, and give back to its' New Jersey community. This month, Harrington set up ten stations throughout New Jersey, where its staff members and client volunteers collected food for the needy.
Harrington is always looking for new ways to give back to the community. "I could not be more proud to be part of such a benevolent enterprise. New Jersey has been my home for almost all my life, and I feel that it is only appropriate that I give back to it. My movers were so helpful, and many worked on their day off to complete this mission. I am so appreciative of their passion for our charity work, and unending devotion when completing these projects." says Harrington President, Jeff Harrington.
Each of the ten food drive stations consisted of a Harrington truck, to place the food, Harrington staff, to transport it, and Harrington clients, to collect it. The Harrington volunteers worked together to successfully complete the benevolent endeavor. The company advertised for the event, by creating s fliers, and giving them out to local residents.
"I read that Harrington was collecting packaged foods, so I immediately went to my local supermarket. I delivered the food to the Harrington Food Drive station on Wright Debow Rd, and I was so impressed. Everyone was working hard, and I felt inclined to help out. I ended up staying for three hours, and I documented exactly what foods were being loaded onto the trucks. I was also ordered to dispose any out of date foods, which unfortunately I saw a lot of." says Harrington customer Maria Restrago.
The food drive ran for about 8 hours, and was successful in collecting an array of foods. All foods donated were fresh, packaged, or canned. Upon closing of the drive, all food was delivered to various different New Jersey soup kitchens. The Harrington Movers delivered the food, and unloaded it in the soup kitchens.
"We were in the midst of serving dinner to about 45 hungry and poverty stricken people, when I saw the Harrington trucks pull up. At first, I had no idea what was going on. I watched as moving men unloaded the moving trucks with cartons of food. They brought the food inside, and explained that it was donated by many New Jersey families. I completely broke down in tears, this food was desperately needed. Juan, a Harrington mover, ended up staying to help us serve dinner. Harrington is a selfless moving company, and I will forever remember how their food drive fed hundreds of people," says New Jersey soup kitchen volunteer Laura Millstein.
