Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 09, 2014
NorthStar Moving® Company, the leading eco-luxury mover in California, announced today that it was awarded the “2014 Hunger Fighting Hero Award” by Move for Hunger for their commitment to fighting hunger in Los Angeles and Orange Counties.
The Fighting Hunger Hero is awarded to organizations that host a successful event to fight hunger in their area. NorthStar Moving’s second annual “Let’s Send Hunger Packing” food drive competition in partnership with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage raised 8,109 pounds of food to feed hungry children in Los Angeles and Orange Counties. The overwhelming volume of food collected and the awareness the company raised for hunger earned NorthStar Moving the award.
"We are thrilled to be a part of the positive impact that NorthStar Moving has had on their community,” said Move For Hunger Director of Operations Dan Ratner. “By raising over 8,000 pounds for the food insecure, they have taken massive strides towards reducing food insecurity in LA and Orange Counties. We look forward to continuing our partnership and watching as NorthStar Moving’s hunger relief efforts continue to grow!"
“I was so overwhelmed with the amount of food we raised this year and now I am so overwhelmed that an organization that fights hunger everyday is recognizing our efforts,” said NorthStar Moving Co-Founder Laura McHolm. “It truly takes a team of dedicated and caring people to raise that much food and together with our team at NorthStar Moving and the amazing team at Coldwell Banker we raised enough food for 6,487 meals! “I am so touched by the award, but more importantly I hope the recognition will build excitement for next year’s Let’s Send Hunger Packing food drive and keep everyone donating to their local food banks throughout the year. Let’s send Hunger Packing! ”
