Phoenix, AZ, February 12, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Prudential Arizona Properties sales executive Linda Salkow is on the move to combat hunger across the country. The busy real estate sales executive joined the board of directors of Move For Hunger, a nationwide organization that helps people who are moving donate their non-perishable food to those in need.
“In the past 12 years of selling real estate, I have seen many families at a loss with what to do with the food from their pantries when they leave. They can’t take it, but don’t want to throw it away,” said Salkow. “Move For Hunger has partnered with moving companies to deliver those non-perishable items to food banks in their local communities. It is a great way to give to those in need.”
Move For Hunger operates in cities across the country and was recently recognized at the American Giving Awards with a $125,000 grant from Chase Bank. The organization has partnered with 260 moving companies in the U.S. to provide complimentary boxes for non-perishable food items and deliver the boxes to local food banks.
Falkow said she looks forward to sharing her unique perspective in real estate to benefit Move For Hunger. “I understand the process, and stress, of moving out of a home. So much food is wasted every year in Phoenix alone by people who just don’t know what to do with it when they move. Move For Hunger provides an incredible service and I hope to help the organization feed even more people.”
Salkow specializes in the community of Desert Mountain, and has consistently been ranked among the top three real estate sales executives in Scottsdale’s prestigious 85262 zip code since she began working in the area in 2000. She has sold more than $200 million in Scottsdale and Paradise Valley real estate.
