Meet Andrew Rozzi!

Andrew works for Gentle Giant Moving Company, located in Boston, New York, Chicago, Seattle, Washington D.C., Charlotte, and San Francisco. “The core of our mission statement is to invest in employee growth and development, which in turn results in an exceptional customer experience. We want to make every customer a customer for life.” For 35 years Gentle Giant has strived to change the negative perception of the moving industry by hiring athletes and investing in their development and training to deliver exceptional service to customers. Gentle Giant has always worked with charitable organizations, like Move For Hunger. Andrew says, “we ally ourselves with organizations who require services that are in line with our core business.” This includes working with hunger outreach groups, aid for victims of domestic abuse, and our dedicated team called Hands of Change works with seniors that are moving to assisted living or downsizing due to loss in the family. So how Did Gentle Giant partner with Move For Hunger?

Andrew first learned about Move For Hunger when he was working in Washington D.C. and helped to launch the initial partnership for a pilot partnership in 2014. Gentle Giant aims to help in the communities that they do business, the model is simple and allows for sustained growth. Gentle Giant and Move For Hunger are a great match especially because the athletic community can participate in events hosted by Move For Hunger, like the Rock n Roll ½ Marathon. When asked how partnering with Move For Hunger has personally affected him, he responded saying the following. “Working for such a fantastic company is great. Learning the ins and outs of running a small business is great. But finding a partner with whom we can actually begin making meaningful change in the lives of those less fortunate in our city givers the great work a real sense of purpose.” After telling Andrew that Gentle Giant has collected 15,531 lbs of food to be donated from local food drives to a food bank, he said that the couldn’t be prouder!

Move For Hunger would like to extend a huge thank you to Gentle Giant for your partnership and all that they have done and will continue to do in the fight against hunger.
