ASBURY PARK, N.J., March 14, 2016 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Move For Hunger today announced that it has again been selected to receive the annual J.L. Simmons Non-Profit PR Grant for 2016.

About the Non-Profit PR Grant:
The Non-Profit PR Grant™ program was originally launched in 2000 to help assist U.S. 501(c)3 worthy causes to raise awareness, attract halo sponsors, and better connect with donors and volunteers. Other PR industry firms have since copied the name, but ours is the original.
Starting in 2013, the Grant was re-named after the company co-founder, the late Dr. J.L. Simmons, PhD, who passed away in 2003. Now the Neotrope PR Grant program is known as the “J.L. Simmons Non-Profit PR Grant.”
With this cause-related marketing grant program, Neotrope has been honored to help many worthy causes in past years, including the Bob Moog Foundation, Camp Blue Skies, Children Awaiting Parents, Girls Write Now, Move for Hunger, National Inclusion Project, Pacific Pinball Museum, Special Equestrians, Starlight Children’s Foundation, World Savvy and dozens more (use of any org name does not imply endorsement).
