Third time’s the charm! Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Los Angeles and Orange Counties has once again teamed up with NorthStar Moving® Company, the leading eco-luxury mover in California for its annual “Let’s Send Hunger Packing!” food drive to feed hungry children.

The battle to raise the most food donations began on May 1 and runs through June 20. Donations will be accepted at 36 Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage offices in Southern California. 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. NorthStar Moving will honor the winning offices, one in each county, with a monetary donation to their local food bank in their name. Laura McHolm, co-founder of NorthStar Moving, said that she hopes to exceed the food collected last year.

“We collected over 8,000 pounds of food last year, which provided 6,487 meals to the area’s hungry children,” she said. “This year we need your help to feed even more kids as the statistics are still astounding! One out of four children in LA County and one out of five children in Orange County struggle with hunger and that struggle increases when school is out for the summer, eliminating access to a school sponsored meal a day.”

Jeff Culbertson, executive vice president of the Southwest Region of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, added: “We are thrilled to be working with NorthStar Moving for the third year for this worthy cause. NorthStar Moving has been a great partner through our Concierge program over the years and we are excited to continue the partnership as we give back to our local community.”

Culbertson and McHolm are asking everyone to participate in the ‘Send Hunger Packing’ drive by simply bringing in non-perishable food donations to their local participating Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage offices in Los Angeles County and Orange County. NorthStar Moving will pick-up and transport all of the 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. It’s truly a moving cause…don’t miss your chance to get involved!
