Lansing, Mich. –TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, the nation’s largest franchised moving company, recently donated a check for $43,093 to the American Cancer Society. The company, which has supported the American Cancer Society as its national charity of choice since 2000, donates 10 cents of every move to the cause. With this donation, more than $425,000 has been contributed to the American Cancer Society.
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®/INTERNATIONAL, INC. President Randy Shacka presented American Cancer Society Associate Director Mark Heffner and Senior Representative Mary Kraft with the donation from last year’s total moves.
“Giving back to the community has been a vital part of the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® system long before it was formalized as a core value of ours,” said Shacka. “When we reflect on our core purpose of Moving People Forward, I can’t think of a better organization to team up with than the American Cancer Society and am so proud of the relationship that has formed over the past several years with this organization. We stand behind ACS to continue supporting the fight to beat cancer.”
Kraft said the entire American Cancer Society team is sincerely grateful TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® has continued to embrace the organization so strongly.
“Because of their commitment The American Cancer Society is able to have a significant impact on helping people stay well and get well in addition to finding cures and fighting back,” she said. “TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® helps The American Cancer Society fund research that helps us better understand, prevent, and cure cancer.”
The American Cancer Society has awarded more than $3.8 billion dollars in research grants, added Kraft.
“We could not have done this without generous partners like TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®. Nearly 14 million people are celebrating another birthday this year because of the lifesaving work our researchers are doing.”
