We want to use our good fortune and resources in order to move others.
We’re moved by what we see in our community. Our amazing clients share our commitment to community and together we’ve moved happiness into corners of the community that could really use a smile. One of the things we’ve discovered about moving is more stuff gets thrown out on moving day than any other day of the year. Rather than scrambling to find a solution for outgrown clothes and furniture, we make the donation process simple. When cleaning out your pantry, there’s no need to throw that food away. With your help, we’ll move that food to hungry children’s tables. Our clients turn their hand me downs into hand me ups. Our team members’ passions for the community are simply contagious. Their causes are our causes. We’ve had the wonderful privilege of helping further projects we’re all passionate about. Each organization or cause has a special place in our hearts and keeps us moving to do more:

Every night, one out of four children in Los Angeles goes to bed hungry. We can’t rest knowing that. Our clients can’t either. Together, we work with Move For Hunger to help fill the pantries of our nation’s food banks.

Fighting hunger by working together one move at a time isn’t the only way to feed children. In recent years, we’ve partnered with Bristol Farms to hold a holiday food drive in the local community.
