   For Hunger, a nationwide hunger relief organization that works with the

   round service programs with Move For Hunger. As part of the
   partnership, Atlas and its agents are building awareness of hunger in the United States and encouraging household move
   customers to donate unused food items to local food banks upon embarking on a household move.

   Atlas' kick-off food drive provided meals to families and individuals in 33 counties across Indiana, Kentucky and Illinois.
