Apex Moving & Storage has certainly made a lasting impact in Puyallup, WA since joining the Move For Hunger network in 2015. They have been working very closely with the Puyallup Food Bank to collect food from large warehouses in the Northwest. Apex Moving & Storage makes between three to six trips per month from these local warehouses to pick up and deliver the food to Puyallup Food Bank. Over the past few months, they have transported 186,000 lbs. of non-perishable food items – that’s enough to provide 155,000 meals for their neighbors in need!

Apex Moving & Storage is no stranger to lending a helping hand. In 2015, their president, Dean Savage, and his wife, began partnering with God’s Food For Life (GFFL), a group at their church that distributes food to local families in need on a monthly basis. They decided to help transport the food being collected from the Puyallup Food Bank to GFFL for distribution.

Apex Moving & Storage also volunteers to help out with the Washington State Fair’s First Day Food Drive every year. Anyone who donatesfood during the first two hours on the first day of the fair is given free admission, a strategy that has proven to be successful again and again. Last year, nearly 6,600 lbs. of food was collected at the entrance that Apex was in charge of, which is enough to provide 5,660 meals! All of the donations go to support the Puyallup Food Bank.

Helping transport non-perishable food items to local food banks is a wonderful way movers in our network can get involved! We always love to see our movers making a difference in their community. Thank you to Dean Savage and everyone at Apex Moving & Storage for leading the way!
