Featured Community Service
MOVERS FOR MOMS®
Join us in making a difference! Every Spring, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® proudly continues its commitment to the community through the MOVERS FOR MOMS® program. In 2024, we celebrate the 17th year of this initiative and the 10th year as a national program.
What is MOVERS FOR MOMS®?
This heartfelt program aims to recognize and support moms living in shelters during Mother's Day. Victims of domestic abuse or homelessness receive small gifts, bringing comfort and joy to their lives.
How Can You Contribute?
We encourage donations of comforting items such as soaps, hair styling products, shampoos, conditioners, diapers and more. Shelters may provide specific needs lists. The collection period runs from March through the Friday before Mother's Day.
When Does It Happen?
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® will pick up and deliver collected items to partnering women's shelters on or before Mother's Day, which falls on Sunday, May 12, 2024. You can also purchase items online and have them delivered directly to our franchise.
Founded by a mom, with women in key leadership roles, MOVERS FOR MOMS® is a natural expression of our commitment to mothers. Results from previous years show the impact – in 2023 alone, over 443,000 items were distributed to shelters, contributing to a total of 2,000,000 items since the program's inception in 2007.
Join us in making Mother's Day special for those in need. Together, we can bring warmth and kindness to moms facing challenges.

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Campaigns
MOVERS FOR MUTTS®
Our fall campaign for 2018 is called Movers for Mutts®. This TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® program helps support animal shelters and rescue centers that foster stray pets. Through the month of October, we partner with businesses, schools, and organizations in the Tennessee Valley to collect donations for animals in need in our community. Essential items include things such as food, toys, and other pet items.
In 2018, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® partnered with rescue center, A New Leash On Life. The items will benefit their new expansion called Hobbes House Project, named after an orphaned kitten rescued through A New Leash On Life. It was adopted by a local family. A family friend turned around and donated a generous amount to help A New Leash On Life in Hobbes' honor. Hobbes House is now dedicated to Hobbes and her family. The plans for the expansion project will be to house even more cats in one of their three locations and build a new nursery to house puppies and kittens. The donations through Movers for Mutts® will help in the efforts to complete Hobbes House Project and, of course, A New Leash On Life's continued efforts to house and care for local animals in need.
