North Aurora, IL, April 10, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Zippy Shell Fox Valley donated moving services to the REALTOR® of Fox Valley’s (RAFV) local food drive to benefit Move for Hunger and the Northern Illinois Food Bank. The donations will be used to help over 50,000 people throughout Kane County and the rest of Northern Illinois that do not know where their next meal will come from.
The RAFV food drive began March 3 and collected food items from REALTORS® and clients throughout the Fox Valley. Zippy Shell Fox Valley then picked up the donated items at the RAFV office in Geneva and delivered them to the food bank.
The RAFV boasts membership from many local real estate offices that extend in a 40-mile stretch along the Fox River Valley. Since its founding in 1921, RAFV has been “the Voice for Real Estate in the Fox Valley.” They have a vibrant Young Professionals Network and work heavily in the political arena defending and promoting the rights and well-being of real estate agents throughout the region.
“We love to be involved in the communities we serve,” said Todd Temaat, owner of Zippy Shell Fox Valley, “so we’re always looking for ways to help and the fact that RAFV teams up with Move for Hunger to deliver food to the Northern Illinois Food Bank is right in our sweet spot.”
Move for Hunger reports that about 14% of people in Illinois do not know where their next meal will come from and food drives like this help raise community awareness in addition to adding much-needed food to the food bank’s shelves.
