JK Moving Services Honored for Its Philanthropic Investments in the DC Region by Washington Business Journal

STERLING, Va., June 07, 2024–(BUSINESS WIRE)–JK Moving Services, a global moving, storage, relocation, and logistics enterprise, was named a Top Corporate Philanthropist in the greater DC region by the Washington Business Journal. The company was recognized for its $632K in corporate donations in 2023 that largely supported efforts to end hunger through the nonprofit JK Community Farm. These investments placed it among the top 30 philanthropists compared to other extra-large employers and were part of the company’s $40M overall donations last year, which also included the cash value of land donations.

“We are honored to be recognized by the Washington Business Journal once again for philanthropy. Our commitment to corporate citizenship and sustainability is a shared endeavor ingrained in the very fabric of our organization—including our giving and volunteer efforts. We work to be great stewards for our community, focusing on reducing food insecurity and preserving the region’s natural assets,” said JK Moving Services CEO Chuck Kuhn.

Among JK’s most significant contributions to community welfare and environmental sustainability is the JK Community Farm, a nonprofit it founded and continues to support. Spanning 150 acres, the farm cultivates over 50 varieties of vegetables, fruits, proteins, and herbs, and is the largest chemical-free nonprofit farm in the nation. The farm relies on thousands of hours of volunteer labor from the community, local companies, and JK employees to meet its goals. The farm’s primary mission is to donate 100% of its produce to local food banks and pantries, including Loudoun Hunger Relief, Food for Others, Arlington Food Assistance Center, and DC Central Kitchen. Since its inception, it has distributed more than 1 million pounds of vegetables and protein to families facing food insecurity. In addition to donating the land, JK also conserved the land so that it will be protected in perpetuity from development.

Over the past decade, JKLH—part of the JK enterprise—has placed more than 22,000 acres of its purchases—nearly one-third in the Northern Virginia region—into conservation easement, ensuring vulnerable vistas and habitats are preserved and protected for future generations. Examples include: 128-acre Loudoun riverfront property that was donated to NOVA Parks; 135-acre Westpark golf course in Leesburg that is being transformed into a park; 87-acre JK Black Oak Wildlife Sanctuary; 56-acre Oakland Farm, a Potomac riverfront property; and 42 acres in St. Louis, one of Loudoun’s first African American townships, to protect it from development.

JK, along with its sister companies CapRelo and JK Land Holdings, employs nearly 1,200 people—a majority of whom live in the Washington, DC metropolitan region. The company has won numerous awards, including being recognized in prior years by the Washington Business Journal as a Best Place to Work and Top Corporate Philanthropist.
