Beltmann Relocation Group of Atlanta Help Floridians Recover From Hurricane Irma
As Hurricane Irma was preparing to make landfall in Florida, Beltmann Relocation Group Atlanta was preparing for the worst. The Atlanta branch purchased $10,000 worth of water and food, which they planned to deliver to the areas that were most severely impacted once the storm had passed.
Early reports had projected that Miami would bear the brunt of the storm. If the models held true, then Pompano Beach, home to one of Beltmann’s branches, would almost certainly get hit hard as they sit merely 30 miles from Miami. Beltmann believes in giving back to the communities they serve, so their original plan was to deliver the supplies to community around their sister branch. Hurricane Irma, however, weakened and took a different path. At that point Brett Battina, President of Beltmann Relocation Group, contacted partner Move For Hunger to find out what food bank needed this massive supply of food and water the most. The organizations teamed up and sent the 23,000 lbs. of cargo Beltmann had at their warehouse 553 miles to Treasure Coast Food Bank in Fort Pierce to help the families in need.
There is clearly still a lot of work to be done in Florida, not to mention Texas and Puerto Rico, as the people there continue to recover from these devastating storms. We are proud to have companies like Beltmann Relocation Group on our team - who are able and willing to respond rapidly during this time of need.
