The Paxton Companies Receives Move For Hunger™ Awards

12/9/2020 Agents-and-the-Industry-Paxton-2-(1).png
A guiding principle of the Paxton Companies continues to be giving back to the communities in which they
serve. This dedication to social causes is a top priority that resonates throughout the company and is recognized through their involvement with Move For Hunger™, a non-profit organization that has created a
sustainable way for the relocation industry to reduce food waste and fight hunger.

Paxton is proud to receive Move For Hunger’s 2020 Hunger Fighting Hero Award and February’s Mover of
the Month Award for their help in collecting nearly 15,000 pounds of food from a local event and delivering it to food pantries and shelters in need. This single donation provides over 12,000 meals to children, families, and
individuals in need throughout local communities in just one month alone.

“We are extremely proud of this accomplishment, but the year is far from over,” said Bill Paxton, Chief Operating
Officer of Paxton Companies. “We’re looking forward to supporting Move For Hunger’s goal and help fight to end food insecurity even more in the year to come.”

One of Paxton’s core values is a dedication to corporate social responsibility. Over the course of Paxton’s
partnership with Move For Hunger, enough food has been collected and delivered to create over 100,000 life-saving meals for the community! Paxton also participates in a host of community service events throughout the
year designed to benefit both the local and global communities alike.
