Veteran’s Day is later this week and here at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, we prioritize the annual recognition of the incredible efforts made by the brave veterans of this country.
We believe strongly in this and do our best to our best to ensure they receive the proper celebration when possible. However, many veterans don’t come home to celebration at all and instead, find themselves in unfortunate situations filled with hardships after their time in the military has ended.
As a company who is committed to giving back to the community – and with the struggles that veterans face when returning to normal life – we used this inspiration to form one of our branded campaigns, Movers for Military.
This was designed by us with a focus on our franchises working within their communities to collect and deliver essential care items to veterans who need them most. Franchises partner with local organizations to set up collection sites where members of the community can drop off these essential care items, which are later delivered and donated to veteran’s shelters.
“Any time we can help or assist veteran or service members, it is a good thing,” said Jeff Walker, a veteran and franchisee at our TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Colorado Springs location. “It is a small way to serve our country.”
With a number of franchise locations employing veteran staff members in a variety of positions, it’s a natural fit for our frontline staff members as they work to give back during the fall season.
“Both myself and Franchisee Alan Oversmith come from military families, so we are both very passionate about this campaign,” said Charlene Bush, marketing manager for all four TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Southeast Michigan and Boston locations. “In addition, we have several veterans that now work at each of our locations as movers or drivers. This campaign is a great way to both honor them and show our appreciation for their service to our country.”
This campaign is a great opportunity for members of our frontline staff to get out in the community and partner with them to make a difference. The break from the normal day-to-day job is welcomed by our movers and drivers, and they love helping out and making life a little better for our veterans.
“Our movers and drivers love helping with the different campaigns we run, so I get a ton of support from both management and our frontline staff,” Bush said. “I was very pleased with each campaign and the amount of donations we were able to deliver.”
