ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS, NJ:  RESOURCES Real Estate seems to be everywhere these days, most recently in Atlantic Highlands where their new office opening offered more than one reason to celebrate.

As a renewal of their community partnership with Move for Hunger, a nonprofit organization based in Neptune, NJ, Resources Real Estate agents were joined by members of the community, family and friends at the Wine Bar, also in Atlantic Highlands, for an evening of cocktails, refreshments and a food drive.

More than 440 pounds of food were collected, which is enough to provide 360 meals for families in need. Move for Hunger works with relocation companies to help fill the pantries of our nation’s food banks.

Resources Real Estate presented the organization with a check for $2,000 as a token of their partnership and support.

“We at Resources appreciate what Move for Hunger stands for and wanted to support their efforts,” said Carolynn Diakon, Broker-Senior Partner. “Rather than have the opening of our new office be all about us, we felt it made sense to join forces with another group of people who are working to make a difference in people’s lives.”

Move for Hunger is an ingenious concept, says Thomas McCormack, Broker-Managing Partner. “When an individual or a family moves and has unwanted non-perishable food that would otherwise be thrown out, Move for Hunger movers pick up the food and deliver it to local food banks — it’s so simple but very effective.”

Resources Real Estate Moves For Hunger

Premiere Real Estate Office Partners With Non-Profit To Feed the Hungry

RUMSON, NJ – Move For Hunger is proud to announce that Resources Real Estate is now a Signature partner of Move For Hunger for 2012. Resources Real Estate offers full service marketing and listing for both buyers and sellers throughout Monmouth County.  The support of Resources Real Estate helps Move For Hunger to continue the fight against hunger and spread awareness of the growing hunger problem in New Jersey and across the United States.

“We are thrilled to have Resources Real Estate, one of the relocation industry leaders, working with us to fight hunger across America,” says Adam Lowy, executive director of Move For Hunger. “Their enthusiastic support will help us to expand our network and deliver food to those who need it most.”

“It’s a wonderfully simple concept,” said Carolynn Ozar Diakon, broker and senior partner of Resources Real estate.  “As a partner of Move For Hunger, Resources Real Estate agents at each of our offices in Rumson and Monmouth Beach will provide hunger awareness materials to out clients, educating them to the local need and urging them to donate any food they won’t be taking with them when they move.”

“Moving is a chaotic time and often people need to get rid of a ton of ‘stuff,’” said Thomas McCormack, broker and Managing Partner of the agency. “Unfortunately much of that ‘stuff’ is food that could go to a family in need. The relocation companies aligned with Move For Hunger ask their customers to donate any unwanted food during the moving process.”

“With over a 1,000,000 food insecure people in New Jersey, it has never been more important to come together to help the less fortunate,” added Diakon.  “Resources Real Estate has always been a strong community supporter and the instant we learned of the program, we signed on.”

The continued support of partners like Resources Real Estate, allows Move For Hunger to make an impact for the millions of Americans struggling to find their next meal. For more information Move For Hunger, and the support of our partners please visit www.MoveForHunger.org.
