Move For Hunger and Chadwell Supply Announce Collaborative Effort to Fight Hunger Nationwide

TAMPA, Fla. -- Chadwell Supply, a trusted MRO source of maintenance supplies for multi-family properties and Move For Hunger, a national hunger relief non-profit organization, have announced a new partnership that will help provide much-needed assistance to food banks across the United States. This collaboration will enable Chadwell Supply to support Move For Hunger's food rescue programs and encourage the clients, associations, and property management companies they work with to integrate the Move For Hunger model into their moving out process for residents.

People throw away a lot of things when they move, including perfectly good food. Move For Hunger's network of more than 1,000 moving companies, more than 1,500 multi-family apartment communities, and many of the world's leading relocation management companies, volunteer to collect this unopened, non-perishable food and deliver it to their local food banks. To date, Move For Hunger's network of relocation professionals and multi-family properties has collected and delivered nearly 18 million pounds of food - providing 15 million meals - to food banks and pantries across the United States and Canada.

"Partnering with Chadwell Supply both complements and advances our mission, so this collaboration was a natural fit," explains Adam Lowy, Executive Director and Founder of Move For Hunger. "By combining the strength of our network of multi-family apartment communities and relocation companies with Chadwell Supply's network and partners within the multi-family industry, we have the ability to get a large amount of food to those who need it most."

"Chadwell Supply is excited to partner with Move For Hunger and share in both their mission and their unique service to our multi-family customers," said Pete Wheeler, Chadwell Supply's Vice President of Marketing. "This is a perfect combination of our company culture meshing with the relationships we have with our customers. We will be able to intercept food that would otherwise be tossed out and help reduce food waste while fighting hunger in our communities."

More than 37 million Americans were food insecure before the COVID-19 pandemic and it is estimated that the number could increase by 17 million this year, totaling 54 million. "As a result of the pandemic, we are facing, potentially, the greatest hunger crisis of our lifetime," continues Lowy. "Chadwell Supply understands the need is more critical than ever and is committed to helping Move For Hunger provide meals to those struggling to put food on the table."

Through the support of partners like Chadwell Supply, Move For Hunger can continue to feed more and empower more to fight for the families, children, seniors, and vulnerable communities who lack reliable access to affordable, nutritious food.

Move For Hunger is a national non-profit organization that has created a sustainable way to reduce food waste and fight hunger. We have mobilized the leaders of moving, relocation, and multi-family industries to provide their customers, clients, and residents with the opportunity to donate their food when they move. Members of Move For Hunger also organize community food drives, participate in awareness campaigns, and create employee engagement programs.

Chadwell Supply began with three brothers determined to make good on a promise - to always value their profession, community and most of all, each other. Keeping time-honored traditions alive, the second generation now operates Chadwell Supply. The "Chadwell Family" has extended to include hundreds of employees working hard to lead the MRO industry, serve customers, and supply multi-family housing facilities from warehouses located in fourteen branches across country (and growing!).

Mullen’s Miracles foundation announces the activation of its second stage to nourish the needs of those in crisis

ATLANTA, Ga. -- Mullen's Miracles announced today the activation of its second stage as a newly established non-profit organization dedicated to nourishing the needs of those in crisis. Mullen's Miracles is providing individualized options, respective support systems, and support provisions to those on the edge, to those assisting others in crisis and to those that have lost a loved one to suicide.

Kathy's only child Eric William Mullen took his life on 10-02-18. This decision shattered her world. As an extension of her motherhood to Eric, family, and friends, Kathy is committed to finding a way to help others have the support they need when in a crisis and reduce loss through suicide. This commitment she made to Eric has become her guiding light. She formed Mullen's Miracles and has personally funded the first two stages of all the work that has occurred.

Taking the time to develop the organization correctly, Kathy is building her non-profit with authenticity and an authority to ensure every aspect of her organization can have the benefits available to those seeking what Mullen's Miracles offers.

"From aligning the programs and offerings to the compliance and messaging, the board members, core teams, and branding and marketing; this organization is being structured with the authority that will allow us to help all those who need it while honoring Eric and his memory. With every step and in every stage, I am committed to growing Mullen's Miracles into a legacy organization that will serve nation-wide well beyond my involvement," says Founder and Executive Director Kathy Mullen.

This stage of Mullen's Miracles includes building up the overall architecture of the programs that have been identified, while focusing on the operational elements, growing the team and the board. An array of content will be distributed across numerous online channels through blogs, audios, images, and videos, sharing the message and methodology.

The third stage is the birthing and launch of the core programs, directory, and the organization as a whole on Friday, October 2nd, 2020. This date coincides with the second anniversary since Eric's passing, bringing a new healing and added meaning to that date.

In this present stage, Mullen's Miracles is building requesting support in spreading its message, growing its team, and connecting its directories to more resources for those in need of them. Mullen's Miracles is a humble organization founded on a personal mission and vision. It is open to adding, supplementing, and expanding ideas that will allow it to reach and aid those in need.

Learn more about joining the team, the directory, adding to the programs or volunteering at https://mullensmiracles.org/.

Mullen's Miracles is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in the state of Georgia, USA.

We can finally do just that and looking forward to helping students have the unique Young Americans conservatory style program of study," he added.

The compressed schedule leading up to August 10, means interested students need to contact the college immediately to ensure their place, he noted. The admissions web site is at https://yacollege.edu/auditions-admissions/

Rooted in an exceptionally well-regarded program of arts education, travel, study, and personal development begun in 1962 by founder Milton C.

St. Louis Firm Mentoring Complete, Associated Colleges of Illinois Partner, Offer Career Mentoring Program for College Seniors

ST. LOUIS, Mo. -- A St. Louis firm, Mentoring Complete (https://www.mentoringcomplete.com/), has partnered with Associated Colleges of Illinois (ACI) (https://acifund.org), a Chicago nonprofit, to offer a Career Mentoring Program to match Illinois college seniors with business mentors. The mentors help guide the seniors as they launch careers.

Funded in part through a National Venture Fund grant from the Council of Independent Colleges (https://www.cic.edu), Washington, D.C., the new mentoring program will be available through career services offices at ACI's 27 member colleges and universities (https://acifund.org/member-college-directory/).

ACI provides scholarships and emergency financial aid to first-generation, low-income students attending private colleges and universities in Illinois, plus career services and peer mentoring for students. Mentoring Complete has considerable experience in successful business and corporate mentoring programs. Clients include Enterprise Holdings, New York Power Authority, OhioHealth and Reach International.

"The design of the program creates consistent interactions, so the mentor and mentee have opportunities to assess how things are progressing, and make adjustments along the way," said Aaron Adams, partner and mentoring expert with Mentoring Complete. The students and their career mentors can also discuss areas of development most important to the student, and the seniors develop a better understanding of how to translate what they have learned in the classroom into the workplace, he added. In some cases, mentors can help mentees find future career opportunities.

"The Career Mentoring Program helps get college seniors engaged at a high level with mentors in their chosen career fields, and helps them begin successful careers and be productive citizens," said Mick Weltman, ACI executive director. Career mentoring complements other components of ACI's College-to-Career program offerings, he said. They include Work and Life Skills Boot Camps, and ACI's Career Development Conference and Career Expo, which help students prepare for careers; micro-internships through Parker Dewey, which help students get valuable work experience while in college; and ACI's job-postings page (https://acifund.org/jobs-and-internships/), which announces positions available for alumni of ACI-affiliated schools.

For the fall term, career mentoring dates are Sept. 15, 2020 to Dec. 15, 2020. Spring program dates are Jan. 15, 2021 to April 30, 2021. ACI will work with career services teams at member colleges and universities to publicize the new program and recruit mentees, who will be placed with potential mentors as available.

ACI will also reach out to corporate sponsors and strategic partners to recruit experienced mentors. People interested in becoming mentors should apply though the career mentoring website (https://www.get.mentoringcomplete.com/aci-business-mentor). Mentors will be paired with mentees for one semester based on availability.

About ACI:

Associated Colleges of Illinois (ACI) is a collaboration of 27 private, independent colleges and universities, representing more than 70,000 students. Established in 1952, ACI supports member colleges and universities by advancing independent liberal arts and sciences education and helping underserved students succeed in college, career and life.
