Can you believe it's September already? The year has flown by so fast, yet there's so much more to do to ensure even more Americans go to bed with a good meal in their bellies. I'm pleased to announce that Move For Hunger just turned 3 years old a few weeks ago. In that time we have grown to work with over 350 moving companies and 180 real estate professionals in 44 states across the US. And it's official: we have now delivered over 700,000 lbs of food - which is enough to provide over 500,000 meals to those in need!
We had an incredibly busy summer of food drives. In fact, we held close to 40 food drives between May and August across the country. We're lined up to hold 15 for the month of September and hopefully another 15 for October. These food drives help us raise greater awareness about hunger while engaging different members of the community to take action! If you are interested in holding a food drive, please email Amy at Events@moveforhunger.org
We've launched a Real Estate Program which is rapidly gaining steam. Realtors across the nation are joining our efforts and becoming a force in our hunger relief efforts. Realtors meet with their clients regularly and have a unqiue opportunity to educate them about the needs facing their communities. If you are a realtor interested in joining our fight, Click Here.
We have a lot more fun stuff planned through the holidays and into next year. Remember, we couldn't do what we do without your support!
