There are more than 665,000 people in the state of Maryland who are food insecure, including 1 in 7 children. The stat is scary, but the good thing is that companies like Ramar Moving Systems are recognizing the urgency of the problem and taking action.

The Ramar team has been a part of our network for years, but this November they hosted their very first food drive. Their goal? To completely fill a truck with nonperishable food items and deliver them to the Frederick Rescue Mission.

It was a great way to kick off the holiday season, for sure, and we are very happy to report that their goal was reached! Ramar Moving Systems collected an awesome 3,060 pounds of food, which is enough to provide 2,550 meals for Maryland families in need.

Fill-A-Truck food drives are an easy way to collect lots of food in just a few hours, which is why they are so exciting! They are also perfect for our movers, considering they already have trucks on hand. Thank you so much to Ramar Moving Systems for taking the time to make a difference. All the food you have collected will change the lives of so many people in your community, and we are so proud to have been a part of it!
