TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® locations across the country collect donations for women every spring and deliver them to local women’s and family shelters on or before Mother’s Day. Franchises partner with local shelters, schools and other community organizations to collect goods that will make Mother’s Day special for moms living in shelters. This annual campaign is called Movers for Moms®.
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® picked up and delivered the collected items to partnering shelters around Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 12. This year was a record-breaking year with more than 120 participating franchises, 420 schools and 117 shelters.
Donations are determined by individual shelters, but can include: nice soaps, hair styling products, shampoos and conditioners, pillows, blankets, slippers and other basic clothing items.
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® has women in key leadership roles across the country -- some of the most successful franchisees are mothers. Movers for Moms® is a way for TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® to appreciate the efforts of mothers everywhere, despite their current circumstances.
In 2013, more than 205,000 items were collected and donated to shelters across the country. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® partners with National Heritage Academies (NHA) schools (K-8), KinderCare Learning Centers and many other schools throughout the country to facilitate classroom collections. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® also partners with charter and private schools, as well as local organizations such as Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts of America.
