Since joining Move For Hunger in 2012, A+ Moving and Storage has embraced the fight against hunger by providing all of its customers the opportunity to donate unwanted food to their local food pantry during their move. To date, A+ has collected more than 7,000 pounds of food, which equals more than 5,800 meals, for the Fayetteville Urban Ministry. As an added service, A+ Moving and Storage generously donates their time, services, equipment and supplies to their neighbors by organizing food drives in the Fayetteville community. A+ Moving and Storage also puts food collection boxes in apartment building lobbies across Fayetteville to encourage residents to donate to others in need.
“Move For Hunger is an excellent program,” Jerry Hare, owner of A + Moving and Storage. “All you have to do is put together a little bit of time, put forth a little bit of effort and want to give back to the community. It’s all about giving back to your community.”
The family-owned and operated moving company has been an interstate agent for Wheaton World Wide Moving since its inception in 2003. Wheaton World Wide Moving is a founding partner of Move For Hunger since it was established in 2009. A+ joins AMWAT Moving & Warehousing in Tallahassee, Fla. and Crown Relocations in Keasbey, N.J. as the third Wheaton interstate agent to earn the title of Mover of the Year from Move For Hunger.
The Mover of the Year Award was presented at the annual American Moving & Storage Association (AMSA) Convention and Expo on March 22 in New Orleans, La. in front of the leaders of the relocation and storage industry.
