  • Handling Hunger Together in our 58th Year


    Carolina Handling is celebrating its 58th anniversary in 2024 with a yearlong campaign, entitled Handling Hunger Together, to help eliminate food insecurity in our local communities.

    According to Feeding America, more than 44 million people in the U.S. face hunger each year, including 1 in 5 children. In 2022, 49 million people turned to food banks, pantries and community organizations to help feed their families.

    About 8 million pounds of food was collected and delivered to feeding organizations in 2023, according to Move for Hunger, with food banks in need of pallet jacks, forklifts and other material handling equipment to move non-perishables and fresh produce.

    That’s where companies like Carolina Handling can help, so in honor of our 58th year in business and our 2024 Handling Hunger Together campaign, we’re giving away 58 motorized pallet jacks to hunger relief organizations throughout our territory.

    These 2016 and newer, used Raymond 8210 electric pallet jacks with battery packs will be awarded on a first-requested basis to qualifying organizations. Please complete and submit the online form below to apply.
