Crown Moving & Storage held a Thanksgiving food drive.

Crown Moving & Storage, a Wheaton World Wide Moving agent, has been a long time partner of ours and they have done a lot of amazing work in the Indianapolis community. This year, they felt it was imperative to hold a food drive and lend a helping hand to the families in their community.

From October 29-November 9, Crown Moving & Storage hosted a Thanksgiving food drive to help provide holiday meals for their neighbors in need. They also recruited several local businesses to assist with the effort. The Wheaton/Bekins corporate office, New York Life, and VMS Biomarketing all held food drives, as well!

More than 3,000 lbs. of food were delivered to the local food bank.

When all was said and done, more than 3,000 lbs. of stuffing, cranberry sauce, gravy, canned vegetables, instant potatoes, pie filling, and other non-perishable food had been collected, which is enough to provide 2,500 meals! Crown Moving & Storage personally delivered all of the donations to St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry.

Crown Moving & Storage was one of the first companies to join our network back in 2009. Over the past 9+ years, they have delivered more than 9,300 lbs. of food – that’s the equivalent to 7,700 meals.

910,000 people in Indiana face hunger every day, including 1 in 6 children. We’d like to extend a huge THANK YOU to Crown Moving & Storage, and to everyone at Wheaton/Bekins, New York Life, and VMS Biomarketing for helping set the table for families in your community!
