As we wrap up the summer season and head into fall, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®’s efforts to give back to the community are ramping up.
This is an ongoing mission for our company throughout the year to do our part in giving back, but the fall season is an especially prudent time for participation in our fall cause campaigns. Our founder, Mary Ellen Sheets, made giving back to our local communities a top priority for our franchises, and this mission has continued since the mid-1980s.
In addition to our four, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK branded fall campaigns, we also have great relationships with organizations such as Cheeriodicals and Convoy of Hope. We work year-round with these organizations to donate our resources to aid in their missions. At TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, donating our resources to such great causes is an effort our team is especially passionate about.
Find out more below about the four fall campaigns our franchises run in their local communities each year.
Movers for Meals®
The goal is to support families in the community that face hunger by partnering with schools, businesses, and other organizations. These organizations gather and deliver non-perishable food items to food pantries and local shelters that will then help support people within the community that are in need. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK assists with this process by delivering these items to food banks for those in need.
Movers for Mutts®
This is a program created by TWO MEN AND A TRUCK in order to help local animal shelters or organizations who care for and foster stray animals. This program is hosted each fall and partners with local businesses, schools, and organizations to collect food, toys, and other essential items pets may need while waiting for their forever homes.
Movers for Military®
We also believe it’s important to give back to the brave men and women who have served this country. Local TWO MEN AND A TRUCK locations partner with schools, businesses, and veteran’ shelters to collect essential care items each fall and deliver them to veteran’s shelters the week of Veteran’s Day. The Movers for Military® program helps care for the brave veterans that have fought for our freedoms.
Truckload of Warmth®
This program was made to support local shelters by providing warm clothing to those in need. This includes new or gently used coats, hats, gloves, scarves, and anything needed to stay warm. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK partners with local schools, businesses, and organizations to collect these essential items each fall. Next, they are donated to the local homeless shelters.
Giving back to our communities is a mission we don’t take lightly and we hope to inspire others to do their part in giving back as well!
