On January 9, 2017, CASA’s second annual Soup-er
Bowl food drive will kick off, and this year, St. Pete Moving and
Storage is proud to be a participant. This year’s drive goes through
February 28, 2017, and this drive is designed to bring aid to CASA’s
100-bed, emergency domestic violence shelter.
It is a shocking statistic that approximately 30 percent of women and 15 percent of men will, at some time in their lives, be victims of domestic violence. In order to escape their abusers, it is helpful for victims to have the means to find alternative housing, food, and other care. In the instances where those means fall short, though, CASA strives to bridge the gap.
In addition to collecting non-perishable foods throughout the drive, CASA is aiming to raise the necessary funding to be able to buy and provide fresh and nutritious foods all year long for people staying at the shelter.
St. Pete Moving and Storage’s Involvement
At St. Pete Moving and Storage, we’re happy to contribute to the community in whatever way we can, and that’s why for this drive, we’re not only donating our time and effort, but moving boxes and packing help. As professional movers in the Tampa Bay and St. Petersburg area, we know that packing and moving things to where they need to go is a critical service, and when it comes to this food drive, collecting the non-perishable food is just a start.
With our help, the food gets help going where it needs to be--at CASA’s shelter for domestic violence.
Throughout the months of January and February, CASA asks the Tampa Bay area to continue giving its support for the men, women, and children, who need our help.
