FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

North Billerica, Massachusetts– Personal Movers, a family owned and operated moving company based in North Billerica, MA has joined forces with Move For Hunger, a nationwide, non-profit organization that works with relocation companies to fight hunger.

Relocating is a hectic time for everybody and people often take this opportunity to throw away a variety of items.  Unfortunately, many people also clean out their pantries and discard perfectly good, unopened food items. 

The Personal Movers team will now be asking its customers to donate those unopened food items to help hungry families living in the area. Personal Movers will deliver all the food donated by their clients directly to the Merrimack Valley Food Bank, providing much needed meals to the needy while saving the food bank valuable resources.

“With over 700,000 people in Massachusetts relying on the food bank for support, it has never been more important to work together to help the needy in our community,” says Adam Lowy, executive director of Move For Hunger.  “We are so happy to have Personal Movers join the Move For Hunger family and expand the fight against hunger to Northeastern Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire.”

Personal Movers’ professional staff will assist in the packaging and transportation of all food donations to the food bank. With 1-in-7 Americans relocating every year, movers like Personal Movers that are involved with Move For Hunger have a real opportunity to provide assistance to the millions of Americans struggling to find their next meal.
