Pete’s Moving Services Holds 2nd Fill-A-Truck of 2018!

Pete’s Moving Services helped us get 2018 off to a great start AND made sure we finished strong! The National Van Lines agents earned Mover of the Month honors after hosting their first-ever Fill-A-Truck way back on January 20, and that event was such a success that they could hardly wait to do it again!

The Modesto, CA movers had originally planned to hold the food drive during the weekend before Thanksgiving but, unfortunately, it had to be postponed due to the wildfires. With thousands of families displaced as a result of the disaster, Pete’s Moving Services knew it was more important than ever to give back to the communities they serve.

So on December 8, Pete’s Moving Services parked one of their trucks outside of O’Brien’s Market, and challenged shoppers fill the trailer with non-perishable food. Although they didn’t quite get a full load, the crew did manage to collect more than 225 lbs. of food, which will provide 185 meals for their neighbors in need! Pete’s Moving then delivered all of the donations to the Second Harvest Food Bank of San Joaquin and Stanislaus Counties, which partners 90 agencies in the region.

More than 217,000 people, including 1 in 5 children, in the Central Valley face hunger each day. Thank to you everyone at Pete’s Moving Services for taking action, all year long!

We want to help YOU host a food drive, too! Let’s get started today!
