Student Athletes Helping Victims of Domestic Violence
For the victims of domestic violence who want to leave their situations, escape can be difficult, especially if it is to be done in secret. Packing and moving in the middle of the night with very little help or support is often the only option that people are left with. In California, one company is aiming to change that.
A moving company called Meathead Movers, staffed entirely by student athletes, has turned their company into a mission of sorts. Their goal is to help domestic violence victims get out of their situations and on with their lives. In each city where Meathead Movers is active, they have partnered with a local domestic violence shelter. They promise to help anyone in need break away from the cycle of violence.
Not only do the movers at the company help people settle into their new homes, but they deliver gifts and necessities to families who are being serviced by the local shelters when no other transportation is available. The company is receiving national attention and, to date, more than 100 companies have pledged to do their part in the fight to move the abused from their homes and into better lives.
Anyone who has a good or service to offer is invited to do so. The need of victims is great, and the more people and companies that step up, the better these people can be serviced. If you own a business and would like to pledge your assistance, you can do so by clicking here.
