Moving forward with community
With a team hailing from Central Connecticut, we are passionate about our community, and it’s no surprise that we seek out ways to help our community move forward. We offer discounted moves for non-profit organizations, run drives to collect home, kitchen, or personal care essentials for at-risk families or veterans, and use our trucks and muscles to lend support to our community. To learn more about how we can support your organization or about how you can participate in one of our community service initiatives, please email marketing0373@Twomen.com.
SPECIAL EVENT STORAGE/EVENT SITE OFFICE HUB CONTAINERS
Need a solution for temporary storage or a temporary onsite office hub away from the elements at your event? Consider our portable storage containers!
Gathering and transporting supplies for special events can be cumbersome.That's why the coordinators of such events as the Hartford Marathon, Glastonbury Apple festival, and Coats for CT turn to TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® for short-term staging solutions and onsite office hubs. Supplies can be gathered into our containers from several different locations and picked up and stored in our warehouse for delivery to the event site on the day of the event. The 16' x 8' x 8' container arrives clean and looks like the back of a truck with bright white walls. With an extension cord, the container can serve as an office hub at the event location or staging site providing protection from the elements for materials or staff. Containers are best placed on a solid, non-grass surface to avoid lawn damage. Call us to book a container for your event!
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Campaigns
Movers for Military
Veterans have a variety of needs ranging from health treatment for chronic and disabling medical conditions to the need for reintegration and employment opportunities. Whether its helping a Micro Loaned Veteran Start up move its business, running drives for clothing and personal care essentials for disabled Veterans, or hiring veterans, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Central CT is dedicated to supporting the Veterans Home. Last year we launched a TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® donation drive called Movers for Military to support Veterans who require special care that are serviced by 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.

Team works makes the dream work. That's why TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Central CT is happy to support the American Cancer Society's Making Strides against Breast Cancer Walk with our Value Flex® containers and crew. Each year, Breast Cancer Walks celebrate survivors and raise funds to help our world move forward breast cancer free. Our containers help stage and deliver the supplies needed to support the walk and our crews help load and deliver these essentials.
Coats for CT Holiday Coat Drive

As "Movers Who Care®" TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® was proud to lend our containers to house coat collections and dispatch our crews and trucks to distribute the coats to far-reaching The Salvation Army in Connecticut and Rhode Island locations
Connecticut Alliance of Foster and Adoptive Families

This yearly event, hosted by the Connecticut Alliance of Foster And Adoptive Families Inc. CAFAF, benefits foster, adoptive, relative care teens and all teens within the DCF community.

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.
Fresh Start Pallet Program
When Fresh Start Pallet Program, an organization committed to helping homeless learn trade skills by converting wooden pallets into outdoor furnishings, needed to merge its operation from three locations to one, they called upon TWO MEN AND A TRUCK in Central CT. Deeply discounting the move, two crews dedicated 12 hours each to moving over 5,000 pieces from three locations. From the low ceiling and meandering sunless basement of Hartford churches to its brand-new sun streaming studio complete with above ground loading dock, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Central CT helped the Pallet Program get off to their "fresh start"! To learn more about Fresh Start Pallet Program and order their furnishings go to freshstartpalletproducts.com.
Glastonbury Apple Music Festival and Road Race
The Glastonbury Apple Harvest Music Festival and Road Race is one of Connecticut's most popular events with three stages of live music, amusement rides, craft vendors, food trucks, a fully stocked Harvest Pub, and the Angry Orchard 5K Road Race on the festival’s closing day. You can imagine the coordination and signage that goes into setting up for this favorite event! That's why the CT River Valley Chamber turned to TWO MEN AND A TRUCK for weeklong support. Our ValueFlex® container served as a staging ground for all signage and our crews helped load, unload, set up the event and move this happening forward! A five stat crew for a five star event. Count us in for next year!!
Movers for Moms® Partner: Journey Home
Movers for Moms® is TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®’s nationwide donation drive to support women and children living in crises. Like TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, Journeyhome.org is committed to helping all families enjoy the security and comfort of a home, sweet home. The organization has helped reduce homelessness in the Greater Hartford region by 75%. A roof is helpful, but not yet a home. That is why TWO MEN AND A TRUCK partners with Journeyhome.org to collect essential toiletries, cleaning supplies, bedding and kitchen furnishings to provide essential creature comforts for women and families in shelters and transitional housing. in 2019 our Movers for Moms® Drive collected over 1100 items through the support of local partnerships.
