TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® is proud to partner with the American Cancer Society by donating 10 cents of every move nationwide to help support this great organization’s effort. Since 2000, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® has donated over a half a million dollars in the help to fight cancer.
The American Cancer Society is on a mission to free the world from cancer. Until they do, they will be funding and conducting research, sharing expert information, supporting patients, and spreading the word about prevention. All so you can live longer — and better.
St. Johns County’s Betty Griffin Center’s free programs and services include a shelter, transitional housing rape care unit/sexual assault recovery services, counseling and support groups, court advocacy and legal assistance, community education, and two thrift stores that provide a portion of funding. Last year Betty Griffin’s 24-hour hotline calls totaled 1,500, with services being provided to 2,000 survivors and their children.
“Movers for Moms® is recognizing Mothers for the immeasurable contribution they make every day to the world. Without the communities’ support, a special day for survivors would not be possible. It is community members who make a difference in the lives of survivors by showing their support for life-changing services.” – Joyce Mahr, CEO, Betty Griffin Center.
In 2019, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® collected and donated over 18,000 items to the mothers in need for Movers for Moms®.
Like so many things affected by the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, our annual Movers for Moms® campaign was forced to take a step back as community gatherings were halted to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. We made a strong comeback in our 2021 Movers for Moms® drive collecting over 21,000 personal care items for women affected by domestic abuse.
Each year, Hubbard House serves more than 4,000 domestic violence victims — adults and children — and receives generous support from the community. Nearly half of its support comes from caring and concerned individuals and organizations. This demonstrates that people trust the agency and its promise: Donated dollars are carefully managed and stay local, helping victims and their children. In all ways, the community embraces the agency's mission, “safety, empowerment and social change for victims of domestic violence.”
“When survivors of domestic violence flee for the safety of the Hubbard House shelter, they often come with few belongings and limited financial resources. So, while they are with us working toward safety and financial self-sufficiency, Hubbard House provides everything they and their children need,” explained CEO Dr. Gail A. Patin. “This is what makes the Movers for Moms® initiative so important! It allows our partners -- members of the community -- to provide tangible support for survivors while simultaneously communicating caring to those in need and allowing the agency to allocate more resources toward survivor services.”

We are proud to be a partner with the North Florida Chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and their “One Walk” at Metropolitan Park in downtown Jacksonville. Truckie was on hand to cheer on the many walking groups who raised money for this important research.
JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. JDRF’s goal is to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people’s lives until they achieve a world without T1D. JDRF collaborates with a wide spectrum of partners, and is the only organization with the scientific resources, regulatory influence, and a working plan to better treat, prevent, and eventually cure T1D.
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® was there with the Salvation Army of Northeast Florida when the call came to help the victims of Hurricane Irma. The generous people of the First Coast region really showed up and helped fill multiple trucks with relief supplies so desperately needed by the hurricane’s victims.
The Salvation Army is an international movement and through their broad range of services, it touches the lives of one out of every eight people in Northeast Florida.
Held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s® is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support, and research.
We are proud to help the Alzheimer's Association, Central & North Florida Chapter with their walk in downtown Jacksonville each November. Look for Truckie and all the walkers this Saturday, November 3, for another great event!
