Crown North America moves to end hunger
July 11, 2012
Los Angeles, July 11, 2012 – Crown Relocations announced that Crown North America have chosen Move For Hunger, a nonprofit organization, as their premier corporate social responsibility charity for 2012.
By teaming up with Crown Relocations, Move For Hunger is able to create one of the nation’s largest year-round service programs. Crown has picked up unwanted, nonperishable food items from those who are relocating, boxed the food donations during the moving process, and has been delivering them to local food banks where they will be sorted and distributed to families in need.
"We are thrilled to have the support of Crown Relocations," said Adam Lowy, executive director of Move For Hunger. "We love their enthusiasm and are looking forward to collecting a great deal of food for those struggling in our communities."
The donations Crown has collected have already helped thousands of families in North America. By the end of the 2012, Crown’s goal is to collect a total of 6,420 pounds, or about 2,912 kilograms, of food which would provide approximately 5,000 meals to those in need. So far in 2012, Crown has already collected 2,604 pounds, or about 1,182 kilograms, in total. This has provided over 2000 meals to help feed the hungry. In addition, Crown Relocations 's partnership with Move for Hunger will soon help launch a similar program in Canada.
Rónan Kelly, president of Crown Relocations, North America, stated: "Over the years, we’ve seen so much waste in our industry. Even if we’re able to collect just a few cans of food a week, it will go a long way in helping struggling families in the communities we serve."
