Long Island Based National Facility Service Firms Announce Fourth Annual ‘Food Drive’ Now A ‘Thankful Event’

MEDFORD, N.Y. -- Professional Retail Services (PRS), Retail Security Services (RSS), and Retail Mechanical Services (RMS) are affiliated national facility service companies based in Long Island. The three entities have teamed up for the fourth year in a row to honor their tradition of giving back to the community.

This year, in place of a traditional food drive where employees, friends, and family donate food items; the three affiliated companies decided to fund the event's donations and rename the "Food Drive" to a "Thankful Event."

The food items packaged as meal kits will feed 600 Suffolk residents this holiday season. The kits will be donated and delivered to the William Floyd School District and HELP Suffolk on November 23rd for disbursement. Each meal kit includes two boxes of stuffing, two boxes of mashed potatoes, two desserts, four cans of vegetables, one can of cranberry sauce, two boxes of corn muffins, two packets of gravy, and one 8 - 12 lb. frozen turkey.

Kathleen Larmour, president and founder of all three companies, had this to say regarding the beloved event:

"We have many reasons to be thankful, and what better way to celebrate that than to rename our event while keeping our yearly tradition of helping those in need.

"Many have endured financial hardship due to the pandemic, which is why we decided that funding this event and not having friends and family donate was appropriate."

Larmour added, "This year we are extremely thankful for our loyal employees, customers, and service partners. This would not have been possible without them."

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.

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."

ACE Home Services Hosting St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance Food Drive to Help Fight Hunger

PHOENIX, Ariz. -- It's that time of year again! ACE Home Services is hosting a food drive for St. Mary's Food Bank in order to help alleviate hunger within the community.

ACE Home Services is a top HVAC and Plumbing company servicing the Phoenix Metro area. For years since it was founded, they have provided homes with quality AC and Heating facility maintenance, equipment installation, and repair, ensuring smooth operation in homes.

As part of their Corporate Social Responsibility and intervention, the company announced they will be hosting the food drive starting Monday, October 12, 2020 and ending Saturday November 21, 2020. ACE Home Services will offer significant discounts to clients in return for food donations. ACE Home Services will also have internal staff competitions during the food drive to help achieve our overall goal of receiving over 200 lbs of food items.

Currently, 1 in 4 children, 1 in 5 Arizonians, and 1 in 7 seniors within Arizona live in poverty. It is our goal to assist St. Mary's Food Bank Alliance as they distribute 48,000 Emergency Food Boxes per month to support those in need throughout Arizona.

This is the 10th Annual St. Mary's Food Bank Drive hosted by ACE Home Services and they are proud to be in a position to contribute to those less fortunate once again. In last year's event, the company was able to gather about 100 lbs of food items.

For the food drive this year, they promise to do even better. ACE Home Services is providing this support because they're not just about serving customers but also about showing humanity and kindness and accessing the energy in sacrifice and giving.

Good examples of food items to donate are:
* Canned vegetables, especially those without added salt.
* Fruits canned in juice, unsweetened applesauce, 100-percent fruit juice and dried fruit such as raisins or craisins.
* Canned meats and fish, such as chicken, ham, beef, tuna and salmon. Do not donate meat canned at home.
* Peanuts and peanut butter.
* Whole grain, low-sugar cereals such as plain instant oatmeal, whole grain Os and bran flakes.
* Whole grain or enriched pasta and instant rice-either brown or enriched. Boxed noodle and rice dishes can be an easy starting point for a one-dish meal.

* Spaghetti sauce, salsa and canned beans, including baked beans.
* Reduced-sodium broth and soups.
