Merchants Moving & Storage is proud to be a locally owned Boise based company since 1944. We are committed supporters and partners to local community. Here are a few of the organizations we support.
Move for Hunger
Since 2012 Merchants Moving & Storage has partnered with Move for Hunger. Move for Hunger is a non-profit organization that works with relocation companies to collect non-perish food items and delivers it to food banks across North America. When our customers are moving and they have unopened non-perishable food items they want to discard our crews will pack it up and deliver it to the Idaho Food Bank. In the fall we have a Fill the Truck Food Drive held at Albertsons locations where we collect food for the Idaho foodbank. We also have virtual food drive where people and go online and donate directly to the Idaho Foodbank. Since 2012 we have delivered 17,452 lbs. of food to the Idaho Food Bank that equals 20,942 meals to Idaho families in need.
Festival of Trees-St Alphonsus Hospital
Merchants Moving & Storage is honored to be involved with the Festival of Trees for the past 33 years. Our drivers and trucks help deliver the beautifully decorated tress to their new homes. As a favorite holiday event the Festival has raised more than $8 million dollars to improve healthcare in our community.
