FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - January 10th, 2020, Santa Barbara, CA - Hazelwood Allied Moving and Storage was presented the 2019 Hunger Fighting Hero Award for assisting with the food drive organized by Move for Hunger on Christmas. The award, given by Move for Hunger’s Executive Director, Adam Lowy, acknowledges the company’s commitment to fighting hunger.

Hunger is a widespread social issue that affects many men, women, and children across the United States and the world. In fact, there are an estimated 41 million Americans that suffer from food insecurity every single day, which means that around 12.3 percent of American households were food insecure in 2019.

“We are grateful to be able to give back to this community, and especially pleased to be able to contribute to such an important cause,” says Casey McCann, owner of Hazelwood Allied.

In 2009, a non-profit organization called Move for Hunger was created in response to this growing epidemic. The program utilizes a network of over 1,000 relocation companies like Hazelwood Allied Moving and Storage, to collect donated, non-perishable food items from people moving their homes and businesses to new locations.

As a moving company in Santa Barbara, Hazelwood Allied contributed the boxes needed to hold the donations for the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County. As a result, it collected 289 lbs. of food and helped provide 240 meals to the local community.
