Moving Forward in the Community
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® of Fort Lauderdale was established in 1999 and, as we look forward to our 20 year anniversary, continues to be very active in the local community. Even Truckie has gotten in on the action visiting local charities, community events, and even Grand Openings.
Winterfest Boat Parade
Truckie was out this year for the "Greatest Show on H2O". Over 1 million people watch the Winterfest Boat Parade live along the New River and the Intracoastal Waterway as it runs from Downtown Fort Lauderdale to Pompano Beach. The parade is broadcast locally and internationally to millions more.
Giving back has always been a core principle at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® of Fort Lauderdale. Each spring the company participates in the Movers for Moms® campaign collecting essential care items for local women’s homeless and domestic abuse shelters. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® of Fort Lauderdale (and all of our South Florida offices) team up with businesses to collect items for Women in Distress of Broward County.
This year we collected more than 2500 items thanks to the generosity of our community partners and our customers. To learn more about Movers for Moms® and Women in Distress we recently recorded an interview with NBC 6's Six in the Mix program with our Marketing Director, Alexa Lanier talking about our Movers for Moms® program and how you can help.
Partnerships and organizations
So far in 2016 TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® of Greater Fort Lauderdale and Hollywood donated more than $30,000 worth of money, time, and discounted moves to charities within South Florida. This demonstrates just how proud they are to support local charities, such as the American Cancer Society Florida Division, Make-a-Wish Foundation of South Florida, Children’s Home Society of Florida, Forever Family, Harvest Drive, Lighthouse of Broward County, Gilda’s Club of South Florida, and Susan G. Komen Miami/Fort Lauderdale.
Florida Harvest Drive
It was a record breaking year for collections at the 2017 Florida Harvest Drive. Truckie brought a few of his friends to help with donations brought to Western High School.
