Service in our Colorado Springs
Movers for Moms®
Each year, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® of Colorado Springs gives back to so many mothers in need with our Movers for Moms® campaign. We collect essential care items for mothers living in homeless and domestic abuse shelters, which are delivered to the women each Mother’s Day. No matter the situation, every mother deserves to feel special on her special day. Last year, we partnered with TESSA to donate the much needed items to mothers and their families.
Movers for Meals
Hunger is a problem many Americans face daily. So, to help combat this issue, we also kicked off our Movers for Meals campaign to collects nonperishable food items for families facing hunger. We teamed up with School District 49, and donated both our trucks and services to collect and deliver items to several non-profit organizations.
Partnerships and organizations
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Colorado Springs has been blessed since 1993 by the city that we live and work in. It is for that reason we feel it is important to give back to the community to show our appreciation and become involved in organizations we feel will benefit many people in need. Organizations we’re happy to support include Care and Share, Partners in Housing, TESSA, United States Air Force Academy, and Ecumenical Social Ministries. For more information on how we participate with these fine organizations, please call our office.

Colorado Springs Ecumenical Social Ministries (ESM) was established as a nonprofit organization in 1982 by eight large downtown churches. Considered an outreach extension for the community, ESM responds to the emergency social service needs of low-income, homeless and unemployed individuals and families in Colorado Springs. In response to the Gospel, ESM promotes self-sufficiency and restores dignity by providing food, medicine, housing, job placement, educational programs, and spiritual encouragement.
