As a long-standing success story that began here in South Florida, their Eagle-emblazoned moving trucks are a familiar sight on our streets: Superior Moving & Storage. Specializing in residential and business, long and short distance moving, as well as storage, we're used to seeing them hard at work around town. However, on Saturday, May 8, 2010, their business was purely benevolent, providing trucking services to assist with the Stamp Out Hunger food drive.
Organized by the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) the Stamp Out Hunger food drive was a thriving success for its eighteenth year. Each year, residents place bags of non-perishable food items next to their mailbox which letter carriers retrieve in the course of their daily mail delivery service. All food collected is taken to the food bank, sorted and distributed to over 800 non profit organizations including: food banks, pantries and shelters that service children, families, the elderly and people with disabilities in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties. The NALC food drive is the largest single day food drive in the country and last year, over 1 million pounds of food was collected in South Florida, alone.
Superior Moving & Storage was proud to be responsible to transport large amounts of food items from a Coconut Creek post office to the food bank in Hallandale Beach. Driver, George Braga said, "It was definitely fun to be a part of this event. When I pulled up and other volunteers saw the big moving truck, they started clapping!" George continued, "I would like to be a part of this Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive again and next year. I am going to suggest we use our biggest tractor trailer."
When I conveyed George Braga's remarks to Anthony Aglione, the president of Superior Moving he responded, "I am proud of George's attitude. Our men are used to home owners putting their trust in them. The job is far more than moving items from one location to another. Our men also need to be patient and understanding of the stress our clients are under during the course of a move. To hear George's genuine sense of happiness after participating in this event gives me a sense of pride that he is part of our hard-working, caring team of professional movers.
