White Glove Moving joins move for hunger

VERO BEACH — White Glove Moving, Storage, and Delivery of Vero Beach has joined the nationwide network of relocation companies dedicated to ending hunger in the communities they serve.

White Glove Moving has joined forces with Move For Hunger, a non-profit that works with relocation companies to get unwanted food from families who are moving to those who need it.

The crew of White Glove Moving will now be collecting any food items their clients won’t be taking with them and delivering the donations directly to Treasure Coast Food Bank.

Treasure Coast Food Bank, together with more than 200 partner agencies, distributes millions of pounds of food annually throughout Indian River, St. Lucie, Martin, and Okeechobee counties.

“We’ve always encouraged those leaving our area to donate their unused non-perishable food, and many individuals do so through our annual Farewell Food Drives. We welcome the efforts of White Glove Moving to help secure more food for those in need on the Treasure Coast,” said Treasure Coast Food Bank CEO Judith Cruz.

“As a company, we feel blessed to have the work and referrals of fellow Treasure Coast residents and businesses. We are thrilled that by helping people and families move, we can also help end hunger and make a difference in the lives of those who need it during difficult times,” added Phil DeLange, President of White Glove Moving.

“More than 18 percent of Florida’s population lives at risk of hunger. Every day, more than 3 million people struggle to find their next meal, including 1.1 million children. It has never been more important for the more fortunate members of the community to lend a hand to those in need,” said Gavin Christiansen, director of operations at Move For Hunger.

“We are thrilled to have White Glove Moving join us in the fight to end hunger. With such devastating hunger statistics at both the local and national level, their efforts will provide crucial support to Treasure Coast Food Bank’s mission to feed the hungry,” Christiansen explained.
