FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SPRINGFIELD, VA, May 26, 2015 – - Interstate Moving | Relocation | Logistics (MoveInterstate.com) announced today that it has been named a 2015 Cornerstone Awards Finalist by SmartCEO Magazine. The award recognizes the region’s businesses and leaders who have made a positive impact on job creation and retention, market competition, and philanthropy. The winners be announced and honored at a luncheon in August. 

SmartCEO's Cornerstone AwardsWe’re honored to be named a Cornerstone Awards Finalist by SmartCEO,” says Arthur E. [Bud] Morrissette IV, Interstate Managing Director. “Washington is a special place; it’s a place where people want to live, and grow. And Interstate is proud to be a part of a thriving region that provides countless opportunities for businesses like ours to connect with one another, and the community at large,” adds Morrissette.

Interstate has strong ties to the community, which isn’t surprising, given the company’s 70-plus-year history of service to the Washington, D.C. metro area. One of the company’s notable partnerships is with George Mason University, where Interstate has created scholarships, internship opportunities, and has been a generous sponsor of Mason’s Intercollegiate Athletics program.  Interstate has also been instrumental in facilitating Patriot Packout, a program that encourages students to donate or recycle unwanted items as they move out for summer. In just eight short years, the initiative has resulted in the donation of over 72,000 pounds of food, clothing, and appliances to families in need. The program has received a great deal of praise, and last year, Interstate was awarded the prestigious John C. “Jack” Wood Award for Town Gown Relations by the university.
