Los Angeles, California, UNITED STATES

LOS ANGELES, April 29, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NorthStar Moving® Company, the leading eco-luxury mover in California, has teamed up once again with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage for their third annual "Let's Send Hunger Packing!" food drive to feed hungry children in Los Angeles and Orange Counties.

"Last year we were thrilled to collect over 8,000 pounds of food which provided 6,487 meals to the area's hungry children," said NorthStar Moving Co-Founder Laura McHolm. "This year we need your help to feed even more kids as the statistics are still astounding! One out of four children in LA County and one out of five children in Orange County struggle with hunger and that struggle increases when school is out for the summer, eliminating access to a school sponsored meal a day. We're asking everyone to help us 'Send Hunger Packing!!' Simply take your non-perishable donations to your local participating Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage office. Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage offices in Los Angeles County and Orange County will be competing to collect the most food donations for their local food bank, so help your local branch office win!"

The battle to raise the most food donations begins May 1 and runs through June 20th. Donations will be accepted at 36 Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage offices. The Los Angeles County Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage offices' donations will benefit the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank and the Orange County offices' donations will benefit Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County. NorthStar Moving will honor the winning offices, one in each county, with a monetary donation to their local food bank in their name.

"We are thrilled to be working with NorthStar Moving for the third year for this worthy cause," said Jeff Culbertson - Executive Vice President Southwest Region, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. "NorthStar Moving has been a great partner through our Concierge program over the years and we are excited to continue the partnership as we give back to our local community."

NorthStar Moving will pick-up and transport all of the donated items to the two food banks. Donations can be dropped off at any of the participating Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage offices and can also be dropped off at NorthStar Moving's headquarters at 9120 Mason Ave., Chatsworth, California.
