AVE Holds 5th Annual Hunger Action Month Food Drive

November 19, 2019 | 3:08pm

As a partner since 2015, AVE has never let us down. Every September to celebrate Hunger Action Month, AVE organizes food drives to be held at each of their locations, and this year was no exception.

AveHungerActionMonthFoodDrive2019-Union(1).jpgAll 13 of AVE’s properties participated in this year’s food drive, spreading from New Jersey and Pennsylvania to California. At the end of the month, the donations were totaled and the properties collected 2,480 lbs. of food combined, which is enough to provide more than 2,000 meals! The drives were a complete success, as the properties were able to donate 500 lbs. more than they did in 2018.

The food drives were made possible with the help of several of our moving partners, who volunteered to deliver all of the donations to local food banks.

Shamrock Moving & Storage of San Francisco volunteered to pick up the donations from 2 properties and deliver them to San Francisco Marin Food Bank.

Crown Relocations of New York picked up food from 3 different locations and delivered them all to Community FoodBank of New Jersey.

Harrington Moving & Storage proceeded to pick up donations from the Florham Park location, to also deliver them to Community FoodBank of New Jersey.

The Gentle Giant Moving Company of Philadelphia volunteered to pick up the donations from 2 more properties, and then delivered them both to Philabundance.

Two Men and a Truck of West Chester/Philadelphia picked up donations from the Lansdale property, and delivered them to The Salvation Army in West Chester.

Last but not least, Wayne Moving & Storage, an Atlas Van Lines agent, picked up food from 4 locations and dropped them off at the West Chester Food Cupboard.

More than 41 million Americans, including 1 in 6 children, face food insecurity. Thank you to everyone at AVE, and to all of our moving partners, for fighting hunger during Hunger Action Month!
