It’s estimated that around 12.3 percent of households in the United States went hungry every single day in 2016, a growing epidemic that various organizations are working hard to combat across the nation. In Florida, the numbers are just as grim—with more than 2.8 million people and one in five children going hungry every day.
Move for Hunger is a program that partners with local moving companies across the nation. The organization holds events and fundraisers to raise money and collect food items, and also arranges for pick-up, delivery, and distribution of its donations to food banks all over the USA and Canada.
This year, First Class Moving Systems is proud to be a part of Move for Hunger’s movement towards a food-secure nation. We’re especially excited to be a part of this year’s very first Tampa Truck Pull event, a fundraising effort that will help to fight hunger and food insecurity in our own community.
About the 2019 Tampa Truck Pull
On Saturday, December 7th, 2019 starting at 11am, First Class Moving Systems will host the first-ever Tampa Truck Pull to benefit the 501(c)(3) non-profit organization Move for Hunger.
The event will be hosted by Tampa Joe's Restaurant and Bar at 9316 Anderson Road in Tampa, Florida. The public is welcome to attend, and a crowd of over 200 people is expected to show up for the event. A truck pull is an exciting, community-building event and fun-filled competition. People can enter their teams to participate in the event, which involves a competition against each other to see which team can pull one of First Class Moving System’s 26,000lb moving trucks a distance of 100 ft. in the fastest amount of time. The event will feature 8-10 teams of 10 persons max. The team that does this the quickest wins a $500 prize, a trophy, and TShirts, second place wins $250. In addition, the truck pull event will include a fun day of prizes, awards, food, and drinks.
Only one team will be named Truck Pull Champions of 2019. If you’d like to enter your group into the competition, contact us at First Class Moving Systems for more information.
The event is also looking for vendors and sponsors.
