College Hunks Hauls Away Hunger by Donating More than Three Million Meals to U.S. Hunger
College HUNKS Hauling Junk and Moving recently reached the THREE MILLION mark in food donations to U.S. Hunger. The purpose-driven full-service moving company has been a long-time supporter of the nonprofit that strives to end childhood hunger.
“Food meets a fundamental need, and we are honored to do our part to help fulfill this necessity for children and families. This milestone is incredibly special to us, as we’ve been proud partners of U.S. Hunger for more than six years, ” said Nick Friedman, Co-Founder and Visionary of College HUNKS. “Our teams have demonstrated their dedication to the communities we serve throughout the years, not only by supporting our national partners, but also committing their time and resources to local causes. Community is at our core and our teams have stepped up to the plate and been active in upholding these key values that have made our organization what we are today.”
“Understand it’s not just about food. We should be solving hunger by solving housing, healthcare issues, and other socio-economic issues (such as transportation and more). We need to begin addressing these issues historically," said by CEO Rick Whitted.
One in four people struggle with food insecurity or are unsure of where they will get their next meal. For more than a decade, U.S. Hunger has activated more than 800,000 volunteers to distribute more than 150 million meals across the globe. They provide access to nutritious meals for low-income families and individuals. To date, they have distributed meals in 53 countries and all the U.S. States, as well as Puerto Rico.
In addition to U.S. Hunger, College HUNKS also supports Goodwill Industries, Habitat for Humanity ReStore®, and programs that help victims of domestic violence. Every year, College HUNKS works with local shelters to provide free and discounted moves for survivors of domestic violence, so they may relocate to a safer environment. Local College HUNKS locations also support area charities, churches, and other community initiatives such as various volunteer work for different Hunger Projects around the US.
