Another spring has passed, and we are proud to announce we had another successful year running our Movers for Moms campaign at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK locations all across the country!
It was year 12 of Movers for Moms, a program we designed to help provide essential care items for mothers who are facing the horrible situation of homelessness or domestic abuse. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK franchise locations partner with local businesses and organizations to set up collection sites in their community before taking the items and delivering them to local women’s shelters on or around Mother’s Day.
As a company that was founded by a mom and her children, we believe strongly in the importance of moms everywhere and want to make sure Mother’s Day is special for them.
“[Our Movers for Moms program] was great for 2019,” said Fabiola Simon, the marketing coordinator for the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Treasure Coast, Fla., location. “We partnered with multiple businesses in our area to set up the collection sites, and this program is great because it puts an emphasis on giving back to those in need.”
With the program continuing to grow each year and awareness spreading about the cause, our numbers continue to grow, and 2019 was one of our best years yet.
-383,236 total items collected across the system
-1,212 total collection sites (894 collection sites and 318 TWO MEN AND A TRUCK locations)
-163 different women’s shelters supported
-Top 3 collection sites: Huntsville, Ala., Treasure Coast, Fla., Jacksonville, Fla.,
“This year’s Movers for Moms campaign went fantastic,” said Stephanie Mills, the marketing and communications director for the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Huntsville, Ala., location. “We had so much support from the beginning. In the first few weeks, we started to gather partners and had different companies and organizations calling us daily to get involved. We ended up with more than 140 partners and more than 23,000 donations gathered to benefit women and children living in Downtown Rescue Mission’s Owen’s House! We’re so thankful for how generous this community is.”
Movers for Moms is yet another chance for the entire TWO MEN AND A TRUCK family to get out and make a difference, and the response across various communities is always positive.
“The response is always beyond what we could ever imagine,” Mills said. “We wanted to double what we did last year, and we exceeded those expectations! Our community was all in and ready to give back for this campaign.”
Thanks to everyone who helped participate and set up collection sites for 2019’s Movers for Moms – without you, none of this is possible! We are looking forward to doing even bigger and better things in 2020. If you are interested in learning more about Movers for Moms or looking to get involved, click here.
