If this isn’t a feel-good story, folks, I really don’t know what is. I was so touched when I read an article from The Good News Network telling the tale of a moving company assisting victims of domestic violence free of charge, I had to share it with all of you.
“Since the recent launch of the program, College HUNKS Hauling Junk & Moving has already completed over 100 free moves for those who are fleeing an unsafe situation in the U.S. and Canada.
“This new program is even more important as more cities are going into lockdown and victims can end up being trapped during the pandemic without relief.
“Five years ago, another moving company, Meathead Movers, began offering free moves to people in abusive homes. Last year they donated more than $150,000 worth of moving services, partnering with eight domestic violence shelters in Central and Southern California.
“Now, College Hunks Hauling is extending the same kind of help across their 131 franchise locations in the U.S. and Canada, offering the use of trucks and labor at no cost,” the article says.
The article goes into detail as to how to apply for the program.
And, College Hunks offers many more altruistic services.
“Beyond domestic violence assistance, College Hunks has also provided trucks for transporting COVID-19 testing supplies and other medical equipment, for relocating beds and goods from one hospital to another, and delivering water to healthcare workers.
“In addition, they have also been donating 2 nutritious meals for every completed job to Feeding Children Everywhere—with over 1 million meals donated since the program began.
“College HUNKS Hauling Junk & Moving was originally founded by two college buddies, Omar Soliman and Nick who began using a beat-up cargo van to haul furniture. H.U.N.K.S. becoming an abbreviation for Honest, Uniformed, Nice, Knowledgeable, Service,” explains the article.
A round of applause for College Hunks, please and thank you.
