Move for Hunger: Mover of the Year!

White Glove Moving, Storage & Delivery is proud to be named “Mover of the Year” for the nationwide non-profit, Move for Hunger.  Recognized as the official charity partner for Bekins Vanlines, Move for Hunger, mobilizes the relocation industry to fight hunger and reduce food waste. To date, the network has collected more than 6,000,000 pounds of food that is more than 5,000,000 meals!

As an active participant, White Glove works with customers in the moving process to donate unwanted- food so it can be put in food pantries rather than landfills.  Since 2013, White Glove has helped ensure over 100,000 lbs. of food has gotten to the Treasure Coast Food Bank and other food distribution points to help families who are food insecure.

Though customers who move help supply a steady stream of non-perishable food items throughout the year, the biggest impact are the two community-wide food drives our moving company hosts. By working with our local chambers of commerce and contacts, an email and social media campaign is released at the start of summer break and again just before Thanksgiving. The request is simple: Care to be a food drive box host?  For those who commit, which dozens do, the logistics are simple. White Glove Moving delivers empty boxes and a few weeks later returns to pick up full boxes. Many businesses and communities use hosting a box to reach out to others and get their staff, customers and neighbors to donate food.  Once the food drive concludes all businesses who contribute are recognized publicly and some are even featured on local radio.

Currently over 50 businesses are hosting boxes with pick up scheduled the week of December 12th.  The goal is to reach 2,000 lbs. of food to help ensure as many folks as possible enjoy a delicious holiday feast.  Thank you to all who are participating throughout the Treasure Coast.  Participating businesses are broken down by city:

Summer Food Drive was a Tremendous Success!

Over 40 businesses throughout the Treasure Coast participated in the 2018 Summer Food Drive to benefit the Treasure Coast Food Bank and the 200+ soup kitchens and food pantries they support. Along with the donations of several moving customers, White Glove Moving & Storage was thrilled to exceed the 1,000 lb. goal by more than double. With three full pallets, the community wide effort yielded almost 2,400 lbs. of food which equates to roughly 1,900 meals.

White Glove Moving, agent for Bekins Vanlines, hosts two food drives each year as part of Move for Hunger; one in the summer and one in between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Now in its sixth consecutive year, participation continues to grow. As the food drive hosts, White Glove delivers boxes to all participating locations and customers then arranges for pickup of the full boxes a few weeks later; making it easy and fun for all who commit to the cause.

Rebecca Rodriguez with the Treasure Coast Food Bank accepts the delivery with White Glove staffers Jeff and Peter.
