When I first took over William C Huff Moving and Storage 30 years ago, it was just a small, 2 men/1 truck company. I got engaged using our company to help our communities. I remember supporting the NH State Realtors’ Association’s annual convention by literally building a portable putting golf course and bringing it to the convention as a way to boost entertainment and bonding with Realtors and vendors. It was a big hit and for the next several years one of the featured events at the annual convention was the William C Huff Company’s “Champagne Putting contest”.
When word got out that we had a portable putting course, one of our staff member’s mom, who was on the board of directors for the NH State Special Olympics, asked if we could set it up for their annual competition at the university track and field venue. It was such a big hit with the special Olympians that long lines formed and the volunteers would have to “pry” the athletes away to go and do their scheduled events. This began our involvement with supporting the community, almost 30 years ago. Over the years our NH and FL offices have been involved with literally 40 or more community non-profits. This has helped our staff and our community to really understand the real needs of others while making a difference, one event and activity at a time. About 9 years ago, during the height of the last “great” recession, corporate America began using “giving back” as a way to popularize themselves with an increasingly more sophisticated consumer who wanted more than just buying a product, but rather wanted to “bond” with companies who gave back to their community. Many, many studies over the past several years indicate that more and more, consumers want a buying experience that tells them they are helping to make a difference. This, of course, has prompted many companies to “join the band wagon” of being involved with community. This is a good thing, however many companies align themselves with a non-profit, volunteer their staff to participate in fund-raising but, don’t really engage. Here are 5 ways moving companies give back in Naples, Florida; more specifically, how William C Huff Companies gives back.
By installing a 137 kw solar power system over 2 years ago, the William C Huff Company has saved over 520,000 pounds of CO2 from going into our atmosphere.
For several generations children born into “at risk families” end up being a burden on society when they reach adult-hood. One group of at risk children, children in foster care, graduate less than 50% from high school and less than 3% from college.

Not just donating money for the academic mentoring program but by donating services to move, store and facilitate the many needs of the organization.
