Movers For Meals®

In 2020, we decided to participate in the national Movers For Meals® program! We held a food drive leading up to the Thanksgiving holiday and donated all of our collections to the Rockford Rescue Mission. The mission focuses on feeding the homeless and those in need in our community. This year has been particularly hard on everyone but has disproportionately impacted low-income families and the homeless population. We partnered with Womanspace of Rockford and our generous customers to collect over 100 pounds of food!.

Movers for Mutts® is an annual fall community outreach program with the objective to provide animals living in shelters with necessary items such as food, distilled water, cat litter, cleaning supplies, pet toys, and other essential items. PAWS Humane Society of Rockford will once again be the recipient of the donations collected during our 2019 collection drive.

Thank you to our 2019 partners and the community for another successful campaign! We were able to donate 735 items which exceeded our goal of 500!

    Rockford Rescue Mission

    The Rockford Rescue Mission provides services to the homeless, near-homeless, addicted, and working poor in our community. They do this in various ways, but the most well known in their community meal program. A free, hot breakfast, lunch, and dinner are provided every day to anyone in the community who needs it. They serve approximately 400 meals per day as well as offering special holiday banquets. They also offer both a Men's and Women's Crisis Center which provides safe shelter, food, and clothing, as well as life-skills training, community resources, and medical services to homeless people in the community. We partner with the Rescue Mission by donating food collected through our annual Movers for Meals® Program, as well as offering our moving trucks and movers free of charge to pick up large items community members want to donate.

    PAWS Humane Society

    PAWS Humane Society is a volunteer organization completely supported by donations based in Rockford, IL. PAWS was founded in 1988 as a spay/neuter assistance operation and has since grown into a full-service humane society. Their mission is to promote, support and provide for the humane treatment and welfare of animals in Winnebago County and the surrounding areas. They work towards a day when there is a home for every pet, and domestic animals are no longer euthanized simply because they have no home. PAWS Humane society was the recipient of all donations collected for our 2018 Movers For Mutts® program.
