Community Service in Huntsville
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.

MOVERS FOR MOMS®
Each spring, we support Movers for Moms®, our company’s signature charitable outreach program. We collect gifts and personal needs items for women in need with local community partners. Those items are then delivered to a women’s shelter in our community, just in time for Mother’s Day. In 2019, we partnered with more than 140 companies and organizations in the Tennessee Valley community. We were able to gather about 23,000 donations for the women and children living at Owen's House at Downtown Rescue Mission. Our franchise had the highest Movers for Moms® donation collection across the system! It's a great way to bless an area of need in our community.

VETERANS OF NORTH ALABAMA SERVICES ASSISTANCE PROGRAM, INC.
Our organization is designed to enhance the lives of the veterans and their families by providing information and transportation to enable them to get and retain basic needs and services, while assisting them in achieving re-integration into civilian society. To pursue these needs, we coordinate services with other organizations as required to successfully assist with federal, state and local services. Then facilitate the pursuit of those needs through limited financial assistance, and transportation.
Our goal is to maintain an office where the veterans and their families will be met with a respectful, friendly atmosphere while recieving assistance either through the Veterans of North Alabama Services Assistance Program, Inc. Or referred to other organizations necessary to achieve THEIR goals. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® in Huntsville is proud to assist Jane Dow in offering moving services for furniture that has been donated to this organization.
We truly appreciate the brave men and women who have given so much to keep our country safe. This is a great place for TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® to give back in a small way. Many of our customers need to discard like new furniture that simply will not fit in their new space. Partnering with Veterans of North Alabama Services Assistance Program allows us to take those donated items to their warehouse and assist in providing furnishings for a veteran's new home.
