Giving back, it's what we do!

In the spirit of giving back to the communities in which we serve and live, we continue to align with local charities, including Kids In Crisis, as well as national efforts, such as TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®’s own Movers for Moms® and Movers for Military program. We have been part of The Movers for Moms® campaign since 2010 and have been successful in collecting over 25,000 items within the past four years. These donations help women in need throughout our local community, including those living in shelters in Stamford, Danbury, Norwalk, and Bridgeport. We are grateful to our generous collection partners in the community who have graciously supported our collection efforts.

Movers for Moms®

movers for moms fairfield connecticut logo TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Of Fairfield Supports  Movers for Moms®  collecting donations for local women’s and family shelters for delivery on Mother’s Day. The purpose of the program is to recognize those moms living in shelters this Mother’s Day by arranging delivery of small gifts for women who are victims of domestic abuse or homelessness.  2017 will mark the 5th year for the Movers for Moms® program.  The donations we encourage: soaps, hair styling products, shampoos and conditioners, pillows, blankets, slippers, robes, etc.  In most cases, shelters’ will provide a list of specific needs.  Partnering organizations can begin collecting at any time, but the collection typically runs from late March through the Friday before Mother’s Day.  TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Fairfield will pick up and deliver the collected items to partnering women’s shelters on or before Mother’s Day —- Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 14, 2017.  TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® has women in key leadership across the company, and some of our most successful franchisees are women, so the idea for Movers for Moms® came to us naturally.

Movers for Military

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Of Fairfield Supports Move for Military We’d like to introduce a community program that may be of interest to you. The annual program is called Movers for Military with a mission of giving back to veterans and their families living in crisis this Veterans Day. In its fifth year, the national program continues to grow and gain additional success.  In 2015, the program collected more than 20,000 items for veterans across the country staying in hundreds of shelters. 

Having the support of local organizations and schools is crucial to our ability to serve veterans in need.  The Movers for Military objective is to provide homeless veterans and their families living in shelters with essential items such as shampoo, food, clothing, etc.  These items help make a difference for homeless veterans and their families, who deserve so much for defending our freedoms every day.  TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Fairfield partners with local schools, businesses, and other organizations starting early October leading up to Veterans Day, Friday, November 11.
