Chipman Relocation & Logistics and Move For Hunger Announce Turkey Drive to Fight Hunger In Sacramento

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Chipman Relocation & Logistics Sacramento - a Full-Service Mover, Storage and Logistics Company, and Move For Hunger - a national hunger relief non-profit organization, announce a local Thanksgiving food drive that will fight hunger and reduce food waste throughout the city.

With estimates showing that the number of Americans facing hunger in 2020 could increase by 46% - that's 17 million more people - the collaborative efforts of Chipman Relocation & Logistics Sacramento and Move For Hunger have never been more important than they are right now.

The Thanksgiving food drive event will be held on Tuesday November 10 and Wednesday November 11, 2020 at the Chipman Relocation Sacramento location at: 1620 National Drive Sacramento, CA 95834 from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. both days.

The company is holding a COVID-friendly and contactless Thanksgiving Meal donation drop off. Requested items include all of the fixings for Thanksgiving meals, including: turkeys, canned beans, canned cranberry and other non-perishable items. Chipman Relocation is encouraging the local Sacramento community to get involved and help our other community members during this difficult time by dropping off non-perishable Thanksgiving themed items to their office during the requested days & times. All food will be donated to the Sacramento Food Bank.

The COVID-19 Pandemic has had a massive economic impact and has drastically increased the need for emergency food assistance nationwide. Move For Hunger has provided more than 2 million meals to food banks across the United States since March, but the non-profit organization relies on the support of partners like Chipman to help coordinate food rescues, organize food drives, and expand its network.

"More than 37 million Americans were food insecure even before the pandemic, and we know that number has increased substantially," said Adam Lowy, Executive Director/Founder of Move For Hunger. "We are so grateful to Chipman and their employees for stepping up and helping us fight hunger during this unprecedented crisis."

First Ever Rose City Truck Pull to be Held on September 12

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Move For Hunger and the Portland Relocation Council announced today that the first-ever Rose City Truck Pull, presented by Chipman Relocation & Logistics, will take place on Thursday, September 12 from 1 - 5 p.m. The event, in which teams of 5-10 will compete to see who can pull a moving truck 100 feet in the fastest time, will be held at Golden Valley Brewing Company (1520 NW Bethany Blvd., Beaverton, OR, 97006).

Proceeds from the event will benefit Move For Hunger, a national non-profit organization that has created a sustainable way for the relocation industry to reduce food waste and fight hunger.

Chipman Relocation & Logistics, a professional moving company based in Portland, will provide one of their trucks for the event. As a member of Move For Hunger's national network of relocation professionals, Chipman Relocation & Logistics provides their customers with the opportunity to donate unopened, non-perishable food during the moving process and volunteers to deliver the donations to the local food bank, free of charge.

More than 510,000 people in Oregon, including 1 in 6 children, do not have reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food. Meanwhile, 40% of all the food produced in the United States each year is wasted. The funds raised at the Truck Pull will support Move For Hunger's hunger relief and food recovery programs in Oregon and nationwide.
