NorthStar Moving and Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Partner for Fifth Annual Food Drive to Feed Hungry Kids

Hunger Doesn't Take a Vacation; NorthStar Moving’s Let’s Send Hunger Packing Food Drive Assists Hungry Children this Summer

/EIN News/ -- Los Angeles, CA, May 24, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NorthStar Moving® Company, the leading eco-luxury mover in California, has teamed up once again with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Greater Los Angeles and Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Orange County for their fifth annual "Let’s Send Hunger Packing!” food drive to feed hungry children in Los Angeles and Orange County. The 2017 food drive kicked off May 22 and runs through June 16 to ensure donations are available to kids during summer vacation.

“In the summer, local food banks struggle to keep shelves stocked,” said Move for Hunger Founder and Executive Director Adam Lowy. “Families with children who receive free or reduced-cost breakfast and lunch at school now need to find a way to replace those meals during the summer. They need to turn to their local food pantry for assistance. Compounding the problem is the fact that food banks typically see a decline in donations during the summer months. That's why it's so important to take action now. The Let’s Send Hunger Packing Food Drive is a great way to help stock local food banks this summer and it has been for the past five years.”

Donations will be accepted at 27 Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage offices. The Los Angeles County Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage offices’ donations will benefit the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank and the Orange County offices’ donations will benefit Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County. The Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage offices will be competing to raise the most food donations. NorthStar Moving will honor the winning offices, one in each county, with a monetary donation to their local food bank in their name.

“One out of four children in Los Angeles County and one out of six children in Orange County are at risk of going to bed hungry tonight,” said NorthStar Moving Co-Founder Laura McHolm. “We are thrilled to partner with Coldwell Banker for our fifth year to bring awareness and some relief to this critical need. It's heartbreaking that children are hungry right in our backyard. Our hope is to raise as much food as we can through our friendly competition. Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage is a stellar partner. We love that they share our desire to make a difference in the communities we both serve. But it's not just up to Coldwell Banker, we are asking everyone to please join us in sending hunger packing! By donating even one food item to your local Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage office you help feed a hungry child.”

“NorthStar Moving has been a loyal partner through our Coldwell Banker Concierge® program over the years and we’re thrilled to continue the partnership as we give back to our local communities,” said Robert Foster, president, Greater Los Angeles, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. 

“There’s no cause that’s closer to our hearts at Coldwell Banker than serving needy residents in our local communities, especially children,” said Jamie Duran, president, Orange County, Riverside County and San Diego County Companies, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.

NorthStar Moving will pick-up and transport all donated items to the two food banks. Donations can be dropped off at any of the participating Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage offices and can also be dropped off at NorthStar Moving’s headquarters at 9120 Mason Ave., Chatsworth, California.
