FENTON, Mo., May 13, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vanliner Insurance Company, a leading insurer for the moving and storage industry, is pleased to announce it has strengthened its partnership with Move For Hunger, a non-profit organization with a mission of fighting hunger in local communities.
Adam Lowy, a third generation mover as well as the Founder and Executive Director of Move For Hunger, has teamed up with moving and storage companies across the country to gather unwanted, non-perishable food items from those who are moving and deliver it to local food banks. Since its inception, Move For Hunger has provided enough food to feed over 2.4 million people and works with over 600 moving companies.
Vanliner has been a supporter of Move For Hunger over the years and in 2014, it plans to elevate its partnership through additional sponsorship and active involvement in the organization's activities. More than 120 Vanliner employees have joined together to form a "Move For Hunger" committee to develop planned activities to help support the cause.
"Everyone at Vanliner is energized about our commitment to Move For Hunger and our ongoing relationship with Adam Lowy," said Ray Wise, President of Vanliner. "Adam recently spoke at one of our all-employee meetings and was met with widespread enthusiasm by the Vanliner team. This resulted in the formation of a special 'Move For Hunger' committee that is currently developing initiatives, including food drives, races, and other fundraising activities. I am very proud of our team who, in addition to our corporate donation, has chosen to donate their time and efforts to help those in need. Move For Hunger is an excellent way for Vanliner to partner with the moving and storage industry to give back to the community by fighting hunger both locally and throughout America."
