A Culture of Giving
At Ridgewood Moving Services, we have a very real commitment to community service.
Ridgewood Moving Services (RMS) and our President, Cindy Myer, are committed to giving back to the communities we serve. An active philanthropist, Ms. Myer served on the board of the Center for Hope and Safety (formerly Shelter our Sisters); sponsors the annual Toy Sale at the Paterson Boys and Girls Club; actively participates in Move for Hunger; and donates the services of her company’s trucks and materials to numerous shelters, hospitals, and charitable organizations throughout Bergen County, New Jersey, and donates as well to United Way, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, veterans organizations, and local police and fire departments.
RMS asks clients to think about families in need before throwing out gently used items they no longer want. RMS will provide free boxes and deliver furniture and other items to people in the community in real need. It gratifies all of us at RMS to be part of an organization that incorporates community as an integral part of how we do business every day.
Move for Hunger
Ridgewood Moving Services (RMS) encourages clients to pause before they discard non-perishable food items when they move. Working with Move for Hunger, a nonprofit organization working with the relocation industry to pick up unwanted, unopened non-perishable food from those who are relocating, RMS can arrange to have the food items delivered to local food banks, where they can be used by families in need.
Center for Hope and Safety
RMS President Cindy Myer served on the Board of the Center for Hope and Safety (formerly known as Shelter Our Sisters), Bergen County, New Jersey’s leading full-service 501c3 agency for victims of domestic violence. CHS raises awareness, provides services, and educates community members about domestic violence, providing a comprehensive umbrella of support services to help women and their dependents attain safety, build a strong foundation for healing, gain self-reliance, and stop the cycle of violence.
Annual Paterson Toy Sale
RMS is proud to be a sponsor of the Annual Paterson Toy Sale for several consecutive years. Since its inception in 1984, the Paterson Toy Sale has grown from a three-table, two-hour event for children to a two-day family event requiring two moving vans to deliver thousands of donated toys that are sold at a nominal fee to local residents. Volunteers run the sale and all material and services are donated, enabling all proceeds to go directly to the Center of United Methodist Aid to the Community (CUMAC), a Paterson-based food and clothing pantry, and the Paterson Boys and Girls Club.
