Dedicated to the San Diego Community

Movers for Military - Now - November 1

Movers for Military is a community collection drive TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® hosts each fall to thank those who have served our country and need help. We work with local collection partners and accept donations from the public to provide essential care items like clothing and personal hygiene products to our local veterans who are facing homelessness. All donations stay in our local community. 

How can I help? 

A great way to help is to host a collection at your work, school or place of worship. We provide the collection boxes, posters and wish list, and we coordinate the delivery of donations to Veterans Village of San Diego in time for Veterans Day. Or, you may make a donation directly at our San Diego or San Marcos offices.

Veterans Village of San Diego

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® San Diego has partnered with Veterans Village of San Diego (VVSD) as our donation partner for six years in a row. VVSD assists homeless veterans who have substance abuse and/or mental health issues, including men and women who have recently returned from Iraq and Afghanistan.

In 2016, the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® San Diego team worked closely with collection partners across the county, including local schools, businesses and customers to collect 50 boxes of more than 3,000 donations of gently used clothing and toiletry items for local veterans in need served by VVSD.

Movers for Moms® - 2017

Our fifth annual Movers for Moms® campaign was a success! This Mother’s Day we were able to deliver more than 30 boxes of critical care items and household goods to women served by People Assisting the Homeless (PATH). Donations benefited women who were moving from homelessness into housing, with little to no personal belongings.

Movers for Moms® is annual collection drive we organize to help local women in need, and to show them they are remembered and supported on Mother’s Day. Each year we partner with San Diego schools, businesses and organizations to make this possible.

Special thanks to our 2017 collection drive partners:
 

  • St. Augustine High School
  • The Kids Bay Learning Center
  • University of San Diego –Veterans Center
  • Harley Davidson
  • Team Wellness
  • Providential Real Estate
