"Over one million children in Southern California lack access to food," says Adam Lowy, executive director of Move for Hunger.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 10, 2014
NorthStar Moving® Company, the leading eco-luxury mover in California, has teamed up with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, with the support of Move for Hunger, for their second annual “Let’s Send Hunger Packing” summer food drive to feed hungry children in Los Angeles and Orange Counties.
"Over one million children in Southern California lack access to food," says Adam Lowy, executive director of Move for Hunger. "We are thrilled to support NorthStar Moving and Coldwell Banker to help change this troubling statistic and send hunger packing!"
The battle to raise the most food donations begins June 16 and runs through August 15. Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage offices in Los Angeles County and Orange County will compete to collect the most food for their local food bank. Donations will be accepted at 36 Coldwell Banker area offices. The Los Angeles County Coldwell Banker offices’ donations will benefit the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank and the Orange County offices’ donations will benefit Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County. NorthStar Moving will award the winning offices, one in each county, with their choice of either: lunch for the entire staff or a $1000.00 donation to the food bank in their name.
“It is devastating to think that even one child goes to bed hungry at night and it is unimaginable to think that almost 700,000 children in Los Angeles County and 1 out of 5 children in Orange County are at risk of being hunger every day,” said NorthStar Moving Co-Founder Laura McHolm. “Those statistics are even more heart breaking in the summer when many children loose access to their school sponsored one meal a day. Please join us in making sure every child has enough to eat every day.”
According to McHolm, last year the program raised 4,556 pounds of food and this year they are looking to surpass that. Please bring non-perishable food items to your local Coldwell Banker office or NorthStar Moving headquarters to feed a child in need.
“We are thrilled to be working with NorthStar Moving again this year for this worthy cause,” said Jeff Culbertson, executive vice president, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. “NorthStar Moving has been a great partner through our Concierge program over the years and we are excited to continue the partnership as we give back to our local community.”
NorthStar Moving will pick-up and transport all of the donated items to the two food banks. Donations can be dropped off at any of the Coldwell Banker offices and can also be dropped off at NorthStar Moving’s headquarters at 9120 Mason Ave., Chatsworth, California.
