DONATE to Community
At All Canada Moving we strongly advocate for the less fortunate in the communities we serve.
Once a month, all Canada Moving volunteers two men and a truck to help Non Profit Societies in moving their larger or heavier items within their facilities or to other locations within the locations we serve on Vancouver Island. Visit our Facebook page to view the next time All Canada Moving schedules the volunteer day.
You too can make a difference in your move.
The following are non profit organizations who the serve community in a specific way, that we will deliver your unwanted items to when you move with All Canada Moving.
Loaves & Fishes:
When people move, they discard food that could be given to a family or one in need rather than be thrown away. When you move with All Canada Moving, we will collect your non-perishable food donations on moving day and deliver them to Loaves and Fishes who feed thousands of people in our community.
Items most needed year round are: Canned Vegetables and Fruit/Canned Beans/Canned Fish/Pasta and Pasta Sauce/Peanut Butter.
For further information on the services Loaves & Fishes provides to the less fortunate in our community and how you can help them in other ways, please visit their website at: http://www.nanaimoloavesandfishes.org/
