NorthStar Moving Wins 2022 Disruptor Award for Social Responsibility

Los Angeles Business Journal honors NorthStar Moving for outstanding green practices & philanthropic work

Los Angeles, CA, Dec. 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NorthStar Moving® Company, the leading eco-luxury mover in California, is honored to announce that they won the Los Angeles Business Journal 2022 Disruptor Award for Social Responsibility. 

In an award ceremony, the Los Angeles Business Journal celebrated their annual 100 Fastest Growing Private Companies in Los Angeles list, and honored a specific group of Industry Disruptors selected by the editors from those ranked companies. The editors chose NorthStar Moving as the winner of their 2022 Disruptor Social Responsibility Award for their steadfast commitment to corporate citizenship, changing the moving industry through charitable contributions.

NorthStar Moving contributes time, services and financial support to over two dozen community-focused charities and socially-conscious organizations. One example is the non-profit organization Miry’s List, which gathers essential household needs for vetted refugee families to help them rebuild their lives in the United States. NorthStar Moving provides free services to store  essential household items and deliver them to the new homes of the refugee families. Holding another special place in the hearts of the NorthStar Moving team is Claire’s Place Foundation. NorthStar Moving Co-founder, Laura McHolm, was on the founding board and now serves as Chairman of the Board of Directors. Founded by thirteen-year-old Claire Wineland who was born with cystic fibrosis, the foundation provides financial assistance to families so they can afford to sit bedside while their family member is in the hospital. 

“Since our founding, we have been in the business of giving back,” said NorthStar Moving Co-Founder Laura McHolm. “Winning the Los Angeles Business Journal's 2022 Disruptor Award for Social Responsibility is certainly a badge of honor. It means we rocked the boat, we did something different. My father taught me: you shouldn’t worry about sales, you should worry about making people happy; and, Ram Katalan and I founded NorthStar Moving knowing we would do just that each and every day. Sometimes, we give financial support; sometimes, we donate our moving and storage services; and sometimes, we use our marketing and public relations team to shine the light on amazing charities doing the hands-on work in our community. Our hope is that all businesses will discover how easy it is to always find ways to help. We’re proud to partner with many charitable and socially conscious organizations who share our vision of working every day to make the world a better place. 

NorthStar Moving and all of the honorees are featured in the Los Angeles Business Journal’s December 12, 2022 issue.
