Interested in joining our effort?
We're looking for local businesses and organizations who will allow us to place a donation box in their lobby or break room. We do all the heavy lifting - delivery and pickup - and we even provide the posters and flyers! All we ask our partners to do is promote the food drive to their customers, employees, members, etc. If your organization can help, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call!

Movers for Mutts
In Fall 2017, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Mesa organized Movers for Mutts, a supply drive benefiting Friends For Life Animal Rescue, a no-kill, volunteer-run animal shelter in Gilbert, Arizona. The rescue provides food, shelter, medical care, fostering, and adoption services to homeless dogs and cats in Gilbert, Mesa, and surrounding cities. We collected hundreds of donations and were able to provide the shelter with over 1,000 lbs. of dog and cat food, plus collars, leashes, bedding, cleaning supplies, and office products - items the shelter needs to run on a daily basis.
In February 2018, when Friends For Life moved to their new facility, we donated two trucks and four movers' labor for their move. We were happy to help them as they moved into their next chapter. If you're getting a new pet, please consider adopting from a no-kill animal shelter like Friends For Life!
Movers for Military
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Mesa greatly appreciates the service of our active military and their families! Many active military families struggle financially and we like to help bring a little extra joy to their families at holiday time.
Every fall we work with Arizona Military Assistance Mission (AZMAM) by partnering with local businesses to collect toys for children whose parents serve at Luke Air Force Base.
The collection had over 100 donation sites throughout Arizona, and with your help, MAM was able to obtain more than 10,000 toys to children at Luke Air Force Base this holday. In December, the kids were able to 'shop' for their new toys at a special holiday celebration held on-base for them and their families.
FRIENDS FOR LIFE ANIMAL RESCUE
Cats and dogs rescued by Friends for Life Animal Rescue often need extended care. Community donations help them provide things like veterinarian visits, surgeries, medication, and housing. Animals awaiting adoption have no time limit to find their adoptive homes; however, the shelter's goal is to find a permanent, lifetime, loving home for every animal in their care. Adopting a cat or dog from Friends for Life not only gives that animal a new lease on life, but also allows volunteers to rescue another cat or dog that may not have had a tomorrow. Friends for Life does not euthanize animals as a means of population control or convenience.
In February 2018, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Mesa donated moving services to Friends for Life when they transferred to their new facility. We had four men and two trucks load various equipment, furniture, and supplies from their old home in downtown Gilbert, and unload everything into their brand new facility near Cooper & Baseline Roads in Gilbert. We're happy to have had the opportunity to support the community in this way!
