DULLES, Va. (PRWEB) September 13, 2019
ShoreView Moving and Storage and Bayshore teamed up with Move for Hunger in May to deliver thousands of pounds of non-perishable foods to families in need as part of the 27th annual Letter Carrier’s Stamp Out Hunger® Food Drive.
The two moving companies received donations collected by postal workers in May 2019 during their local mail routes. The moving teams at Shoreview and Bayshore helped to transport over 112,000 pounds of non-perishable goods from the Stamp Out Hunger® food drive this summer, equivalent to 93,000 meals.
According to Move for Hunger, an organization that connects moving companies to communities in need, food banks face their greatest need during Summer months when low-income children are no longer receiving free or reduced cost meals from school. Summer being “moving season”, is the best time for moving companies to collect the greatest amount of non-perishable food items. Movers, like ShoreView, ask their customers to set aside any non-perishable foods that the families are not bringing with them to their new home.
The Stamp Out Hunger campaign allows letter carriers in more than 10,000 cities across the U.S. collect non-perishable food donations left by mailboxes and at local post offices every second Saturday in May. Moving companies like ShoreView and Bayshore donated their time to ensure these donations reach communities in need by delivering the food items to local food banks.
