Memphis moving company ships hurricane relief to Florida

MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Big League Movers is looking to do something big to help those affected by Hurricane Ian, so the local moving company is collecting take-out items in Fort Myers, Florida.

Over the next three days, a moving truck travels through the Mid-South, reaching three locations in the hope that you will donate generously. Collecting enough items to fill the 16-foot truck will be a community collaboration.

“Just bringing the community together as one, and as we bring them together as one, every little bit counts,” said Lauren Mead of Big League Movers.

In addition to non-perishable food, there are many things that are needed: toilet paper, paper towels, feminine products and baby diapers will be directed 1,000 miles south to one of the most hard hit.

Even small things can make a big difference – Mead said her 6-year-old donated shoes she grew up wearing.

There is still time to give

Thursday, the truck is traveling to the Northwest Mississippi Realtors lot along Highway 51 in Nesbit, Mississippi from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. On Friday, it will be at the University of Memphis game at Simmons Bank Liberty Stadium from noon to 19h.
