MOVERS FOR MILITARY
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Tucson is thankful for the service of our active military and their families. Many military families struggle financially and we like to help by bringing a little extra joy at holiday time. Every holiday season we partner with local businesses to collect toy donations to be distributed to Tucson military families in conjunction with Arizona Military Assistance Mission (AZMAM). The toys are given to the kids at the Tucson Air National Guard's family holiday party.
If you own a business and would like to host a donation box next season, please contact us by email or give us a call.

AZMAM supports and assists our current Arizona active duty military, their families, and wounded warriors regardless of overseas deployment status.
