In alignment with the mission to build strong partnerships with Supportive Housing Organizations, Lauren Castle, national accounts manager for CORT, recently took a personal approach and participated in the San Francisco half marathon to raise money for Move For Hunger.
Move For Hunger is a non-profit organization that mobilizes the relocation industry to fight hunger and reduce food waste. Founded in 2009, the program connects with organizations within the relocation industry to provide boxes and supplies to property management companies and facilitates the means to get the food to local food banks, playing an integral role in hunger relief at the grassroots level.
Suffering from a broken hip only a year prior to completing the half marathon, Castle was presented an opportunity she could not refuse when asked to participate as part of the Move For Hunger team.
Within her personal network, Castle raised $2,500 and CORT matched it. Through her fundraising efforts and CORT’s contribution, Castle donated a total of $5,000 to support Move For Hunger’s programs to fight hunger and reduce food waste across the United States.
Thank you to Lauren Castle and Move For Hunger for supporting this worthy cause!
