The Cartwright Companies is proud to announce their recent partnership with a national non-profit organization, Move for Hunger.  As Move for Hunger’s newest Signature Partner, Cartwright will champion the charity’s efforts in the Kansas City area and nationwide.

Move for Hunger’s goal is to increase contributions to local food banks by collecting unwanted food items from people when they move.  The Cartwright Companies donated $1000 through its corporate fund, The Cartwright Foundation, which will help the charity in their efforts to spread their message across the United States.

“It is with great pride that we welcome The Cartwright Companies to our family,” says Adam Lowy, executive director of Move for Hunger.  “The generous support of leaders of the transportation industry like Cartwright will help bring relief to millions of Americans most desperate for our help.”

Andy Cartwright, President of The Cartwright Companies, stated, “The Move for Hunger story is another example of our employees recognizing and helping fulfill a need in their communities.  The Cartwright Foundation has a history of providing financial assistance to worthwhile causes in both the transportation industry and the community at large.”

Since there isn’t a network of agents participating in the Kansas City area, The Cartwright Companies will contact all local agents on Move for Hunger’s behalf to spread their message.  Cartwright will also reiterate the charity’s message to their larger network of agents nationwide.

The Cartwright Companies will continue to participate in these types of initiatives in the future and further its position as an upstanding member of the greater Kansas City business community.  The third-generation, family-run company and all of its employees are committed to ensuring a better future for tomorrow.
