Giving Back in Gainesville
The TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® core values strive on setting a high standard to giving back to the community. Our team members work, live and love the Gainesville area and we feel strongly the best way to thank the community which has contributed to our success is to give back year after year.
Movers for Moms®
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®'s very own Movers for Moms® program, which collaborates with local business and community partners to collect essential care items for women in need is only one of the many ways we give back to the local community. Since 2011 we've helped make mother's day a bit brighter for moms staying in local shelters such as Peaceful Paths. What to learn how you can help? Contact: Anyse at firstname.lastname@example.org.
MOVERS FOR MEALS
Movers for Meals is TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®'s fall food drive collecting non-perishable food items to help stock our local food banks. We partner with local schools, apartment communities and local organizations to bring meals to those in need. We believe everyone deserves a good meal and giving to those less fortunate is just one way we demonstrate we are the "Movers Who Care®".
Partnerships and Organizations
DANCE MARATHON AT THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA
Although we don't have dance skills we're happy to donate our time, services and movers each year to Dance Marathon at the University of Florida benefitting UF Health Shands Children's Hospital. Each year several hundred students raise awareness for Children's Miracle Network and the obstacles pediatric patients and their families face by staying on their feet for over 26 hours straight. This event is very near and dear to our heart as one of our former team members received lifesaving care as an infant that was made possible with the hard work and generosity from Children's Miracle Network and Dance Marathon.
SEBASTIAN FERRERO FOUNDATION
Noche de Gala is the Sebastian Ferrero Foundation's annual fundraising event benefiting advancements in pediatric research, care and education. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® of Gainesville is delighted to provide assistance delivering event materials, auction items and equipment to and from the event site, as well as manpower to set up. Since 2011 our movers have been behind the scenes helping to pull together such an exciting charity event and look forward to many more successful years.
