Spokane Valley mover finds food to donate

SPOKANE — A Spokane Valley moving company found many of its customers were leaving behind food they didn’t want to take with them.

Action Moving Services president and general manager Jeff Gish told The Spokesman-Review that he hated to see it go to waste. So now, the mover drops the food off at Second Harvest food bank. Last year the movers collected enough to provide about 2,400 meals.

Gish’s company also has helped an elderly couple organize a garage sale before their move.

That kind of help earned Action Moving Services this year’s AGORA Award for community service given by Greater Spokane Inc., the regional chamber of commerce and economic development council.
