Giving back to our communities in 2018

-Written by Erik Sargent

At TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, while we always focus on our goal of providing industry-leading moving services to our customers, we’re also focused on accomplishing one other important goal– giving back.

This covers a broad spectrum for our brand, and we don’t limit ourselves to how we give back to the communities in which we live and work. Whether it’s through a specific person going above and beyond with how they work – our “Move Heroes” – working with a partner organization to handle a crisis situation, or through our own efforts – we want to give back in as many ways as possible.

With each passing year, we find more and more ways to give back to the communities we operate, and 2018 was our best year yet. As the year comes to a close, we wanted to look back on some of ways we gave back and the “Move Heroes” in our family so we can reflect on the outstanding efforts from everyone involved with TWO MEN AND A TRUCK.

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® lives Giving Back to the Community core value

Written by Lindsay Dow

Giving back to the community is where our hearts lie. So much in fact, that we not only developed one charitable program to support those in need, we created FIVE. One national program that every franchise in our 38 states run during the spring months, and four optional programs our franchises can run locally during the fall season.

Each of these programs consist of the same concept: give back to a specific group of people in need, in our local communities.

Being the Movers Who Care®, and having access to critical resources such as movers to do the heavy lifting, and trucks to do the hauling, it just makes sense!

Here’s what we do:

Movers for momsMovers for Moms®: Our national program that runs each spring, from March to May. This program gives back to mothers in need! Franchises partner with local businesses, organizations, and schools to collect essential care items for mothers living in homeless or domestic abuse shelters locally. Items collected depend on what the shelters need, however they often range from soaps and shampoos, to child care necessities.

398748_MoversforMeals_FinalMovers for Meals: This food collection effort runs each fall and collects food for local pantries and homeless shelters. It is coordinated the same way as our Movers for Moms® collection. Franchises partner with local businesses, organizations, and schools for a specific period of time, sort, box, and deliver all items to their recipient partner.

PrintMovers for Military: We are proud to give back to our veterans and local military families! This program is run in local markets and franchises partner with schools, businesses, and organizations to collect essential, everyday items Veteran’s need most. This program runs each fall, and donations are delivered to homeless Veteran’s shelters and families in need around the                                                 time of Veteran’s Day.

398748_MoversforMutts_FinalMovers for Mutts: We also care about our furry friends. When franchises run this program each fall, they partner with local pet shops, businesses, and schools to collect items shelters need most to care for homeless animals.

 

PrintTruckload of Warmth: This program is popular among the cold-weather states! This fall program entails collecting warm, new and gently-used clothing for homeless shelters and rescue missions locally. Franchises partner with the community and deliver these items to the recipient shelters just in time for the cold weather to hit.

In 2014, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® was proud to deliver more than 220,000 items to mothers in need across the country through the Movers for Moms effort! The four fall charitable programs collected thousands of items for Veterans, pets, and those in need around the country!

We can’t wait to kick off the Movers for Moms® program in March! If you’re interested in becoming a collection partner, please visit twomenandatruck.com to reach out to the franchise closest to you. Or, email movers4moms@twomen.com.
