Young Philanthropists Set an Inspiring Example of Generosity

When brothers Aaron and Evan Steed started Meathead Movers as high school students in 1997, their wages often consisted of $20 and a pizza. Now, it’s the largest independent moving company in California.

Meathead Movers operates with a big heart. The company has made giving back an integral part of what they do. In fact, their “Move to End DV” initiative, supported by French Hospital, recently made national headlines for helping victims of domestic violence move out of their living situations at no charge.

This compassionate spirit is spearheaded by Aaron and Evan Steed. Aaron serves as President and CEO of Meathead Movers and Evan as Co-Founder.

Their generosity is driven by a simple formula: “#1: It’s the right thing to do. #2: We can.”

About ten years ago, as the Steeds looked for further opportunities to give back to their local community, they felt that contributing to a commendable health care organization was a natural decision.

Beyond financial support, the Steeds demonstrate their belief in French Hospital through many forms of service. Meathead Movers donates valuable time and services to fundraising events hosted by the hospital. Aaron also became a member of the French Hospital Community Board.

Aaron has been personally impacted by his involvement with French Hospital. In passing through the hospital lobby one day, he overheard a woman tearfully explaining how the Hearst Cancer Resource Center had supported her mother, who was battling cancer. Aaron realized the person talking was one of his employees.

“There’s actual heart and humankindness at French Hospital. It’s not just a buzzword,” says Aaron.

The Steeds have set an inspiring example as young philanthropists in their ongoing support of French Hospital and many other organizations in the San Luis Obispo community and beyond. 

Their response to “Why?” is simply a question: “How could we not?”
