Moving forward with community

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® values every individual and we know that sometimes people need a helping hand, but it is not also easy to receive that extra support. As the “Movers Who Care®,” we are here to help. We cannot stress enough the importance of giving back to the community. In fact, it is one of our core values!

Movers for Military

Last year we launched a TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® donation drive called Movers for Military. Nationally franchisees have been doing it for over five years. Veterans who require special care often turn to the Veterans Home in Rocky Hill, CT. There are over 200 veterans living at the home, and our goal with this campaign is to collect items on their “wish list” and deliver them on Veterans Day.

We would like to give back to our veterans for all they have done for us. We are collecting items at our offices in Avon and Rocky Hill as well as from our incredibly generous customers. There are additional donation sites as well where we pick up the donations and deliver them to the the Rocky Hill Veterans Home. Our 2016 effort has come to an end. Following our donation we received word from the DVA commissioner.  "We appreciate donations such as these throughout the year for our DVA Veterans,” said Commissioner Sean M. Connolly. "We are very fortunate to have such a caring and generous community."

We will do this again next year. If you are interested in partnering with us, please contact us in late summer or early fall of 2017. Thank you in advance! 

Movers for Moms®

We partner with the Rocky Hill Food Pantry and other local charities to provide essential items and home goods to mothers living in shelters or in need of assistance on Mother’s Day. We collect items in the spring for this effort, at our offices and at community partners and local businesses. If your business, school, or community organization is interested in being a collection point in the spring, please give our office a call and we’d be happy to discuss the opportunity.

Partnerships and organizations

We are proud to say that since 2014 we have completed dozens of moves either free of charge or at a discounted rate to more than 15 local non-profit organizations in the greater Hartford area. We also participate in various volunteer efforts, such as the Fall Clean Up Service Day at Hartford’s Camp Courant, the nation’s largest free summer camp with more than 1,100 members, and we support the Hartford Marathon races within the Central Connecticut region.

First Book

First Book Logo This year we have renewed our commitment to provide new books to children in need in Connecticut.  We are assisting FirstBook.org with a donation of $2.50 each time one of our customers submits a post-move survey. Everyday we become more aware of the critical needs of the children in our communities. FirstBook gets new books into the hands of children who need them the most. You can learn about the need by visiting FirstBook. Also, please consider donating your used books to a local library or charity when you are getting ready for your move.
