Ewing Moving & Storage, Inc. Is Making Summer Cool for Memphis Teens

(Memphis, TN)—Ewing Moving & Storage, Inc. began its 2015 summer employment program this month with 17 young men. Their ages range from 16 – 19 and each one is learning about the moving industry through an entry level mover position. The young men work Monday through Friday helping to relocate Ewing’s residential, commercial, and corporate clients. 
 
The summer employment program participants were selected from applicants at the Memphis District Laymen’s Job Fair held in April and young men who attend Progressive Baptist Church who expressed an interest in having a job. Charles L. Ewing, Sr. is the founder and CEO of the company and has hired youth to work for him since it began in 1980. However, this year he decided to do it on a larger scale than in previous years. He was partially motivated by the influx of negative youth activity brought to light by the local media. Ewing, Sr. also serves as the president of the Memphis District Laymen, a religious organization whose mission is to “Unify the men of the Memphis District Association in Christian brotherhood for the purpose of mentoring, evangelizing and nurturing young men, in order to strengthen our churches while helping our communities.”
