Meathead Movers Announces Seventh Year of Supporting Local Women’s Shelter

Meathead Movers (MHM) has announced that they will continue their support of the Women’s Shelter Program of San Luis Obispo County, providing free moving services to victims of domestic violence. The alliance between the community organization and MHM was formed in 2000 as a way for the company to provide support to local residents affected by violence.

“We have actually been offering this service ever since we started the company in 1997, but with our affiliation with the women’s shelter we can provide a more comprehensive service to these in a time of need,” said Aaron Steed, President and CEO of Meathead Movers. He adds, “We were overwhelmed by how many phone calls we received from women in domestic violence situations looking to find help to get out. The Women’s Shelter is there for these women, and we want to make sure they know that we’re here for them, too.” Steed encourages women in a domestic violence situation or who know someone who is to utilize this service for a “happier healthier life.”

According to the Woman’s Shelter of San Luis Obispo’s website, domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women, more than muggings, stranger rape, and car accidents combined.

Meathead Movers provides the equipment, including boxes, and services for free to women who need to leave their home in order to flee domestic abuse.

Since the community program began, Meathead Movers has donated over $50,000 in free services to residents within San Luis Obispo County and has successfully aided in the relocation of dozens of woman.
