Ace World Wide Moving & Storage is being recognized as the recipient of Move for Hunger’s 2013 Atlas Van Lines Mover of the Year award. This merit distinguishes the top participating Atlas Van Lines agency for ongoing efforts to prevent hunger in its local community. To date, Ace World Wide Moving & Storage has accumulated more than 4,200 pounds of non-perishable food for the Las Vegas area.
“Ace World Wide Moving & Storage is honored to contribute to Move for Hunger’s nationwide project to fight hunger,” said Wade Bute, director of operations at Ace World Wide Moving & Storage. “Our staff is always happy to extend our services to the organization and give to others when it’s needed most.”
Ace World Wide Moving & Storage has hosted events in 2013 including a fall food drive in partnership with Downtown 3rd Farmers Market, community garage sale, and vendor fair food drive with the Nevada Professional Facility Managers Association to build awareness and gather necessary items. In addition, Ace World Wide Moving & Storage makes a conscious effort daily in conjunction with surveyors, coordinators, moving and packing crews, managers and owners to encourage household moving customers to donate unused food items to local food banks upon embarking on a move.
“Ace World Wide Moving & Storage of Nevada has been an unbelievable partner in our fight against hunger,” said Adam Lowy, executive director at Move for Hunger. “In the few years they've been participating, they have delivered thousands of pounds of food to their local food bank, which is enough to feed more than 2,700 individuals in need. They are a representation of how to create an impact year-round.”
Ace World Wide Moving & Storage is among more than 600 moving companies that help create one of the nation’s largest, year-round service programs with Move For Hunger. The agency is continuously seeking new, creative ways to give even more to Move for Hunger – whether through events or partnerships with organizations and businesses.
