Giant Moving Company, CYCLE Kids Partner

 “Natural” is the word that comes to mind when president and founder, Larry O’Toole, talks about his decision to incorporate charitable work into the culture at Gentle Giant Moving Company.

In 2005, Larry and his team established the Gentle Giant Charitable Foundation to strengthen their community involvement.
