In our business of buying and selling homes, we understand the process. There are so many items on your “to do” list it can be pretty overwhelming! From getting movers lined up to taking things to Goodwill, from packing and purging clothing and trinkets, to getting your mail forwarded and more. The last thing you want to worry about is the food that is in your home. What will you do with it? Throw it out? Don’t do that! Your friends at Leigh Brown & Associates have a great solution… DONATE IT!
We are thrilled to announce that we have partnered with Move For Hunger. Move For Hunger is a national hunger relief organization that since 2009, has delivered more than 19.2 million pounds of food to food banks across the United States and Canada. That’s the equivalent of 16 million meals.
More than 40 million Americans face hunger every day. Meanwhile, 40% of the food produced in the United States every year is wasted. Move For Hunger offers a sustainable solution to this inexcusable paradox.
Our network of socially-responsible relocation companies provides their customers, clients, and residents with the opportunity to donate their food when they move. Members of Move For Hunger also volunteer to host/assist with community food drives, participate in cause marketing campaigns, and create employee giving programs.
Instead of throwing away your non-perishable food, you contact a mover* who is a partner with Move For Hunger, their team comes and packs up your items, and then takes them to our designated beneficiary – Second Harvest. It’s that simple! And just think, by participating, you are joining the fight against hunger in our local communities.
Did you know…
- In North Carolina, more than 1.8 million people are living in a situation where they may/may not have food to put on their tables tonight?
- And more than 1 in 4 children goes to bed hungry every night?
Let’s change this! Do not throw away your food when you are moving, join forces with our team and let’s help our community in a meaningful way!
*If you prefer to bring your non-perishable items to our One Community Real Estate® office, that’s fine too!
