TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Founder Mary Ellen Sheets had a vision when she first started this brand, one that has stuck with us since day one and has shaped who we are.
Not only were we going to be the most reliable movers nationwide – we were going to make an impact in our communities.. Mary Ellen donated her first $1,000 in profit to 10 different charities in the greater Lansing, Mich., area where TWO MEN AND A TRUCK all began. Since that day, our brand has continued with that commitment, since donating more than $3 million to organizations who support those who need it most.
We’ve also partnered with many great organizations over the years – like Convoy of Hope and Cheeriodicals – but along the way, we’ve decided to create our own branded programs to give back.
There are four fall campaigns and our franchises choose one to run in their local communities:
–Movers for Military: A fall collection drive created to show support for the brave men and women who sacrificed to protect our freedoms.
–Movers for Meals: Created to support families in the community facing hunger by partnering with schools, business, food pantries, and local shelters or food banks to collect non-perishable food items.
–Movers for Mutts: Created to raise donations for local shelters or organizations who care for and foster stray animals.
–Truckload of Warmth: A collection drive for new and gently used winter clothing, such as coats, hats, gloves, and scarves.
“We really are the ‘Movers Who Care®’,” Bush said. “We need to live that out, and it needs to be a part of our culture. I believe when we run these campaigns, it builds trust within an organization, as well as in the community, when TWO MEN AND A TRUCK is helping people and lending support.”
