Mark Your Calendars for NASMM's North American Food Drive — May 2017
Mark you calendars! NASMM's North American Move for Hunger Food Drive is quickly approaching. Our annual drive is scheduled for the month of May, May 1st - May 31st so start planning now! All contributions are welcomed and appreciated! Just 10 cans of food make an impact! Imagine what we could do if each NASMM member company contributed just 100 cans.

There are many ways to collect food. Of course, you can run your own food drive in a community you serve or within your own living community, but you it doesn't have to be a grand initiative. Keep it simple! Consider your own pantries, ask your team to bring in a certain number of cans, or ask your movers to bring food to your next job. Any effort helps those in need!

Remember, each contribution makes a difference! It takes us all. More information coming in March!
