Dircks Provides Super Service and All-Star Treatment

PHOENIX – Dircks Moving, Logistics and Real Estate provided moving, storage and distribution services for the NFL’s Environmental Program following Super Bowl XLII and assisted the Phoenix Suns with boxes and delivery of canned food to New Orleans in honor of the 2008 NBA All-Star game.

The NFL choose Dircks Moving to supply collection and storage services for several donated materials following various Super Bowl events including the big game itself. Items such as decorative and building materials, office supplies and other reusable’s were collected and will be distributed to several regional non-profit groups. Some of these materials will be reused while others can be used as fundraising auction items.

“Running events while keeping the environment in mind is very important to the NFL. We are grateful to Dircks for donating their services to assist with this endeavor,” said Jack Groh, NFL Environmental Director.

Dircks Moving, a proud partner of the Phoenix Suns, donated boxes used to collect non-perishable food donations at the Suns vs. New Orleans Hornets home game on February 6, 2008 and provided transportation of the boxes to Southwest Airlines at Sky Harbor Airport. Several Suns players loaded the boxes onto a Southwest Airlines flight headed to New Orleans on February 11, 2008. The food donation was made to the Covenant House New Orleans as part of the Sun’s community service initiative during the 2008 NBA All-Star Weekend. “Dircks enjoys the opportunity to work for causes that help our environment as well as those that assist the less fortunate. Behind the scenes, the NFL and NBA do wonderful work and we are always thrilled to be included”, said Executive Vice President Rick Dircks. In addition to the Suns, Dircks Moving partners directly with MLB’s Arizona Diamondbacks, ECHL’s Phoenix Roadrunners and Arizona State University Athletics.
