TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Campaigns
Movers for Moms®
Mother’s Day should be a joyous occasion for all mothers and their families. Sadly, that is not always the case. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® is dedicated to changing that with our annual Movers for Moms® collection drive.
Each year, from March through Mother’s Day, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® collects essential care items for moms in crisis throughout Arizona, then delivers these donations to local shelters for homeless and battered women. In 2017, over 5,000 items were collected for Arizona families. Nationwide, more than 300,000 items were donated to help families in need.
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.
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.

Because of this primary aim the Army shows practical concern and care for the needs of people regardless of race, creed, status, color, sex or age.

STREET PIANOS - PLAY ME, I'M YOURS
In 2016, Mesa Arts Center presented Play Me, I’m Yours as part of the celebrations of a major milestone: 10 years at their beautiful location in Downtown Mesa, AZ. When the project launches, more than 20 playable and artistically enhanced pianos were featured, primarily in Downtown Mesa along Main Street, near Mesa museums and libraries, on Mesa Arts Center’s campus and at numerous other public locations. We moved 24 pianos from individual residences to these locations as part of this interactive art installation.
