Shleppers gives back. Caring for the community is part of who we are, as a company and as New Yorkers. Our city has some of the greatest attractions in the world, but we’ve also had some of the greatest disasters. Throughout it all, New Yorkers have come together to face the challenge head on. Shleppers will always be there, proudly doing our part. Here’s what we’ve been up to lately:
Like many of you, we are devastated over the war that continues to unfold in Ukraine. Our hearts go out to the Ukrainian people, many of whom have had to flee their homes with only what they can carry.
As a company, we strive to be more than a bystander in times of crisis, so we partnered with local businesses to help with their efforts. Shleppers helped to deliver donated supplies that included wheelchairs, walkers, canes, and rehab equipment from the Jewish Home At Rockleigh, a not-for-profit skilled nursing and rehabilitation home in Northern New Jersey, to the AFYA Foundation who then transported them to areas where Ukrainian refugees are in need. A gesture that we hope will help to make a difference.
Giving back to the community is what Shleppers Moving & Storage is all about.
Shleppers Moving and Storage is committed to caring for the community – and fighting hunger is something that is near and dear to our hearts. We are honored to be presented with the Hunger Fighting Hero Award by the non-profit Move for Hunger.
Move For Hunger is a national non-profit organization that has created a sustainable way to reduce food waste and fight hunger. Often, people are not aware of all the excess items they throw away while in the process of moving, and it is often food that can be delivered to a family in need.
We make donating food simple; all you need to do is set aside all your unwanted, nonperishable food items during your next move, and our movers will pack up your food and deliver it to a local food pantry.
Caring for the community is part of who we are as a company and as New Yorkers. You can feel good when you choose to move with Shleppers.

Shleppers Moving & Storage has partnered up with The Kanbar Kopel Team to organize a clothing drive to benefit The Bottomless Closet. The Bottomless Closet is all about empowering women and preparing them for job interviews by providing resume help, workshops, and the appropriate attire. This organization has been running for over 20 years and continues to help enable New York City women in need to enter the workforce and become successful. Even though this global pandemic continues to evolve and impact many of our lives in many ways, the Bottomless Closet keeps providing crucial services to the women in need.
Operation Santa is a very special program coordinated by Community Mayors, Inc to bring holiday joy to children with disabilities. Shleppers has proudly provided trucks, volunteers and logistical support to Operation Santa for 11 years in a row.
This year was particularly wonderful: over 4,000 kids were on site at JFK airport, bursting with excitement as Santa arrived on a Delta jet. The kids were smiling and full of joy as they received a gift from Santa – truly one of the best sights of the season.
We were very happy to shlep the presents for Santa so the reindeer can be well rested for Christmas Eve – and look forward to doing this again next year!
Kids Kloset provides diapers, underwear, socks and other clothing items for children in need. They needed a truck and driver to collect donated items throughout the city in time for their annual event, the WJCS Kids Kloset Fashion Show. Shleppers was happy to do so!
For the second year in a row, Shleppers proudly participated in the Cheryl Diamond NYC 5K Schlep. This race is a fundraiser for breast and ovarian cancer research. Breast cancer affects 1 in 8 women nationwide, and 1 in 7 women in the Jewish community. We helped by providing help with logistical setup, breakdown and route coordination.
Leana Peltier, a science teacher at Sleepy Hollow School, coordinated a team of teachers and students who collected school supplies for Clear Creek High School in Houston, TX, which had been devastated by Hurricane Harvey. The Sleepy Hollow students, many of whom had been impacted in some way by Superstorm Sandy, wrote letters of encouragement and support for their Texan counterparts. Shleppers donated the boxes and shipping supplies used to send the donations to Clear Creek.
Business has never been just about making money. Business is about doing the right thing.
Shleppers provided manpower, trucks and storage space during the initial rescue efforts and subsequent months that followed the tragic disaster of September 11th. This event strengthened and redoubled our commitment to the true partnership that exists between Shleppers and the City of New York.
