The month of May is known for blooming flowers and no more April showers, however, did you know that May is also National Moving Month? As the end of the school year rolls around, the month of May marks the beginning of the busy summer moving season. Amidst the chaos of the busy season, Quick and Careful Moving took the time to support a cause that needs more attention than ever during the summer months.

Quick and Careful Moving partnered with Brookside Elementary School in Grand Rapids, Michigan to host a “Fill-a-Truck” food drive from May 1322. Students, parents, teachers, and members of the local community all came together in order to “fill a truck” parked outside of the school with non-perishable food items. Together, they collected 450 pounds of food– or 375 meals–for those battling food insecurity in the Grand Rapids community. Quick & Careful Moving personally delivered all of the donations to Kids Food Basket.

In addition to the truck, Quick & Easy Moving also provided fun festivities for children, including games, activities, ice cream, and even appearances from a few superheroes!

Over 1 million people, including 1 in 5 children, in Michigan battle food insecurity every day. Thank you to our friends at Quick & Careful Moving and Brookside Elementary School for joining the fight to end hunger!
