Movers for Military

Veteran’s Day is a time to honor the courageous men and women who have proudly served our country. Unfortunately, many veterans are experiencing tough times and need the help of local shelters. As the “Movers Who Care®", TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® aims to provide critical assistance to local veterans in crisis with a program called Movers for Military® – a collection of essential items that will be delivered to veterans living at local shelters during Veteran’s Day. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Chico plans on partnering with local businesses, schools, and companies to collect items and then donate them to local shelters on or around Veterans day. 

This campaign wrapped up December 20th! We thank all of the following organizations and businesses that participated

We are working with the committee that is planning the Paradise High School's Prom to help collect dresses for those who cannot afford them.

You can drop off dresses to our Chico office during our normal business hours until March. 

We are looking for a variety of styles and sizes, we only ask that dresses must be: clean, free of stains, and free of rips or tears.
