Ward North American and Move For Hunger Renew Partnership to Fight Hunger As Food Insecurity Levels Rise in U.S.

SAN ANTONIO, Texas -- Ward North American, a national moving company with more than 40 years' experience, announced it has renewed its partnership with Move For Hunger, a national hunger relief non-profit organization. As a partner, Ward North American will continue to support Move For Hunger's efforts to fight hunger and reduce food waste.

Due to the current pandemic and economic crisis, many families have been left struggling to put food on the table and are turning to food banks in record numbers. The Move For Hunger and Ward North American collaboration will help food banks across the country meet the unprecedented demand they are facing.

People throw away a lot of things when they move, including perfectly good food - food that could be delivered to a family in need rather than just left behind. With this simple observation, Move For Hunger was born and in 2009 they started building a network among relocation professionals to collect those food items and deliver them to food banks across the country. The network has grown to now include more than 1,000 moving companies, many of the world's leading relocation management companies, and more than 1,500 multi-family apartment communities.

To date, Move For Hunger's network has collected and delivered more than 19 million pounds of food - providing 15.8 million meals.

As members of the Move For Hunger network, Ward North American and their multiple locations educate their customers about the issues of hunger and food waste and encourage them to donate their unopened, non-perishable food items on moving day. The service is free to their customers and turns every move into an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of the less fortunate. They also provide Move For Hunger with additional support by organizing food drives and by assisting with transportation for larger food recovery efforts. In June 2020, Ward North American was recognized for their extraordinary dedication to fighting hunger and named Move For Hunger's Mover of the Month.

"Ward North American has been a valuable partner since 2015 and their support has never been more important than it is right now," said Adam Lowy, Executive Director and Founder of Move For Hunger. "They recently assisted with our pandemic relief efforts and delivered more than 24,000 pounds of food to various social service organizations throughout Texas. We are extremely grateful for all their hard work and proud to call them our partner."

"During this pandemic, our local food banks and community organizations that provide meals and food for those in need, are under tremendous pressure" said Kevin Ankenbauer, President of Ward North American." Our partnership with Move for Hunger has helped us provide increased support to these critical resources in our communities"

Through the support of partners like Ward North American, 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.

About Move For Hunger:

Move For Hunger is a national 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that has created a sustainable way to reduce food waste and fight hunger.

iConnect Launches Remote Technology Systems for Companies to Take Employee Temperatures and to Handle Bill of Lading Process to Combat COVID-19

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- iConnect, a technology company that creates tracking systems for data collection, has developed two programs that will help mitigate the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). The PIP-ILI System (Possibly Infected Person-Identify, Locate, Isolate) was created to assist companies in taking proactive and preventative measures to protect their employees, as well as the public, from COVID-19, with two products: TrackYourText and NoTouchBOL.

Both products are able to identify when a "Possibly Infected Person," (PIP) is showing symptoms of COVID-19 or has a persistent fever.

TrackYourText was developed for employers to take the temperatures of their employees from their mobile phones, collecting that information, as well as their location data, which is then displayed on a PIP-ILI map, per state, in order to track and monitor possibly infected persons. Each day, companies are able to send bulk text messages, simultaneously, to each of their employees, with a link, where they input their temperature, in addition to their location, if required by the company.

TrackYourText also returns data without the use of a GPS tracking app. While this monitoring system might be mandated by companies and considered a crucial step towards protecting their staff, employees should be informed that TrackYourText does not install any tracking tools on their phones, and they have the right to choose whether they will respond to or share their private information with this voluntary technology.

NoTouchBOL is a logistics system that prevents carriers from having direct contact with shipping personnel that are required to sign bill of ladings. NoTouchBOL also captures the location of carriers, tracks their route, monitoring if they have had direct contact with previous freights they have picked up and delivered. This information is then displayed on a PIP-ILI map, per state, tracing their exact route. The map can be used to show if an employee, from another company, who might have come into direct contact with the carrier, is diagnosed with COVID symptoms, and when and where possible infection might have occurred. Both the carrier and employee can then immediately be identified as possibly infected persons.

"We have a long-standing tradition of helping those in need in the San Diego community," said Jeremy Day, General Manager, Ace Relocation Systems. "This event fits right in with that. We are thrilled to participate."

"It's all about feeding the hungry," said Jeff Nadeau, General Manager, Dewitt Move Worldwide.
