Mesa Moving and Storage of Whitefish, MT held their first Thanksgiving Fill-a-Truck Food Drive on Saturday, November 16 from 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM at their local Safeway supermarket.

Mesa Moving and Storage strives to serve their local community in as many ways as possible. While this was their first time hosting a Fill-a-Truck, it will not be the last,  according to General Manager, Marie Lewis.

Mesa provided customers with a list of the most desired non-perishable food and toiletry items. The Whitefish community stepped up, helping to fill box after box, and in just four hours, Mesa collected more than 1,520 lbs. of food, which will provide 1,200 meals! A team of Mesa employees happily delivered all donations to the North Valley Food Bank.

More than 11,500 people in Flathead County are food insecure, including 1 in 6 children. Many thanks to Mesa Moving and Storage of Whitefish for making this food drive a great success!
