We’re proud of our partnership with Move For Hunger, a non-profit organization that works with relocation companies to collect non-perishable food from people who are moving and through local food drives, and then donates those items to food banks and food pantries across the United States and Canada.
When you consider that in the United States alone more than 41 million people are at risk of hunger, 1 in 6 children go to bed hungry and 40% of the food produced is wasted, the effort takes on more urgency. And we’re happy to play a pivotal role in helping to solve this crisis.
Needless to say, it’s satisfying to see the results we’ve all achieved working together. Through the first quarter of 2021, our colleagues and the members of our Weichert Move Network have helped collect approximately 38,412 pounds of food for 32,010 meals. Year to date, we’ve helped collect 46,564 pounds of food for 38,803 meals.
“When we announced our partnership with Move For Hunger, we asked our Weichert Move Network members and our colleagues to support this effort through the collection of donated food and participation in local and national food drives,” said Will Vogt, Weichert Move Network’s Director of Operations. “Of course, they embraced the effort enthusiastically and the results have truly been stellar!”
Added Chris Brunone, EVP Talent Development and Colleague Engagement: “We never cease to be amazed and humbled by our colleagues’ commitment to positively impacting the lives of others, be it employees being relocated around the globe or families in need in their respective communities.”
