Hope arrives with a moving truck.

A Florida family-owned and operated business since 1995, American Van Lines, continues giving back to the communities in which they work and travel.

In 2023, national charity Be Strong and American Van Lines partnered to ensure that young people and their families would have access to the support and resources they need. They didn’t stop there, they kept on trucking!

The truth is, there are moments of opportunity to help people during travel.

Anthony DiSorbo, CEO of American Van Lines, and Ashleigh Cromer, CEO of Be Strong, explored the potential to help more people. “We were both motivated by the idea of the intersection of opportunity and help, where American Van Lines is at the center,” Cromer shared.

They were inspired by what could happen when the young person who’s sitting in traffic, fighting a silent battle, and looking for a sign of hope, but who lacks support, a trusted adult, or a friend, looks up and sees a decal on the back of an American Van Lines moving truck, offering help anytime, anywhere in the US. This opens a door to an opportunity to reach someone when they’re hurting and feel alone.

Cromer expressed, “As someone who relentlessly fights for our young people and has battled depression throughout my life, I’m grateful for American Van Lines’ willingness to use their influence to spark hope and connection when someone is least expecting it.”

As Desmond Tutu said, “hope is being able to see that there is light, despite all of the darkness.” The hope of this partnership is to spark interest that results in lives being saved and improved.

“As a husband and father, I take responsibility to do all that I can to help our young people and communities,” DiSorbo shared. “Our partnership with Be Strong is a personal passion and area of impact that I want to be a part of.”

In April 2024, American Van Lines did something that is already resulting in lives being impacted. They added decals about the Be Strong App to their entire fleet of vehicles.

The addition of these decals raising awareness of the free help that’s available through the app reflected on Be Strong’s April 2024 impact report the organization’s highest monthly downloads so far this year! This proves that through collaboration, innovation, and the willingness of a generous company, we can collectively do more to serve our communities!
