'I have been amazed and so touched by Coldwell Banker’s and the community’s passion and generosity in assisting with feeding hungry children. The food we collected will provide 3,796 meals!' said NorthStar Moving Co-Founder Laura McHolm.

NorthStar Moving® Company, the leading eco-luxury mover in California, announced today that their first annual “Let’s Send Hunger Packing” summer food drive competition in partnership with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage raised 4,556 pounds of food to feed hungry children in Los Angeles and Orange Counties.

Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage offices in LA County and Orange County have been competing for over a month to collect the most food donations for their local food bank. NorthStar Moving has tallied the collected food for each office and is very pleased to announce the winners. The “Food Donation Heroes” that collected the most food in their county are San Marino Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage for Los Angeles County and Laguna Niguel Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage for Orange County. NorthStar Moving will give each of these award-winning offices lunch for their entire staff.

NorthStar Moving also awarded Gabriel Castelli of Coldwell Banker Concierge for making this food drive partnership possible, as well as Rachel Burnard of the Hancock Park North Coldwell Banker office, Mary Ann Campaigne of the Laguna Niguel Coldwell Banker office, Joella Merten of the Arcadia Coldwell Banker office, and Kristin Schmidt of the San Marino Coldwell Banker office with the “Super Volunteer” award for their dedication, enthusiasm and tireless work to collect donations to feed hungry kids.

“I have been amazed and so touched by Coldwell Banker’s and the community’s passion and generosity in assisting with feeding hungry children. The food we collected will provide 3,796 meals!” said NorthStar Moving Co-Founder Laura McHolm. “The demand for food for children in Southern California has tragically continued to grow much faster than resources, so every single can or box of food we deliver to our local food banks helps. I was shocked to learn that one out of four children in Los Angeles County and one out of five in Orange County are at risk for hunger every day. As a community, we can make a difference in the lives of our communities’ children. This was our first summer food drive, it went well beyond my expectations and I am so moved by everyone involved who helped make it such a success. Thank you so very, very much! And, I look forward to next year! And by the way, just because this summer’s food drive is over, doesn’t mean you can’t go online and donate directly to your local food bank. Let’s Send Hunger Packing for good!”

NorthStar Moving delivered all of the donated items to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank and Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County.
