14 Atlantic Relocation Systems Branches Take the 100 Can Challenge!

Atlantic Relocation Systems, an Atlas Van Lines agent, has provided more than 80,000 meals to people all across the United States since joining our network in 2013. One of the reasons they have been able to have such an incredible impact is that all of their branches are dedicated to giving something back to the communities they serve. That passion and collaboration was on full display recently, when every Atlantic Relocation Systems location decided to take our 100 Can Challenge!

From November 1-December 31, all 14 branches were challenged to donate 100 non-perishable food items to help provide meals for their neighbors in need. We’re happy to report that 13 of the 14 offices reached that goal, and most went above and beyond 100 items! Nearly 10,000 lbs. of food was collected overall, led by the Tacoma/International branch, which donated an incredible 3,780 lbs. of food! Each office delivered their donations to a local food bank.

More than 41 million Americans face hunger each and every day, including 1 in 7 children. We know that it’s going to take more than a few food drives to solve this problem, but we are grateful to have partners like Atlantic Relocation Systems, who are dedicating time and resources to do their part!
