Cancer research fundraising a mission for Perry Moving [Marriottsville/Sykesville/Woodstock]

While October is generally known as Breast Cancer Awareness month, I would like to take this opportunity to celebrate a local business that raised funds for the Susan G. Komen Foundation for Breast Cancer Research.

Perry Moving & Storage, is at 8005 Dorsey Run Road in Jessup. However, the Perry Family lives in West Friendship and has much to be proud of. With every move completed during the month of October, Perry Moving and Storage donated $25 for breast cancer research with a grand total of $2,875 in donations. In addition, staff members wore bright pink shirts for the month to advocate for this worthy cause.

This disease has affected many of the staff and family members and they are committed to fighting breast cancer. Perry Moving & Storage is a Howard County-based, third generation, family owned and operated moving and storage company.

The Perry family has been in the moving and storage industry since the early 1920's. While the company began in Nyack, N.Y., Rich Perry, brought the family business to Maryland in 2001. Today, Perry Moving and Storage is one of the most renowned residential and commercial movers in the Baltimore-Washington area, offering everything from local and long distance moves, to short and long term storage.
