Local Meatheads donate time and ability to a good cause

Local Meatheads donate time and ability to a good cause

IMG_1686-200x300They stress that their employees are well mannered, clean cut and strong. An image that folks trust. When they aren’t carrying your property to their trucks the movers are jogging back inside. Meathead Movers was started by Aaron & Evan Steed in 1997. Their company has grown to become one of the most respected local moving companies in California.

They have recently teamed up with a California non-profit that works in domestic violence-prevention, Good Shepherd. Domestic violence situations are complicated. Victims often fall into patterns that make escaping the violence difficult. Often they feel that they are trapped with no where to go and no means to physically leave. They often don’t have the ability to pack up their life, their belongings, and move it to a different location. It can be a daunting task for a woman and her kids to pack and move in the ofttimes very brief window of time before the abuser returns home.

The Steeds realized that they had a valuable resource that could help; strong, athletic men who believe that real men don’t hit women and that real men help others. Meathead Movers are offering to move someone in a domestic violence situation for free. Working with Good Shepherd, someone in a domestic violence situation can apply for Meathead Movers to help them escape to a better living arrangement, whether moving in with relatives, into a shelter or to an apartment or house.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
