Giving Back to the Community

Movers for Moms®

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® in Melbourne has participated in the Movers for Moms® for the past several years. This program supports moms who are living in homeless or domestic abuse shelters each spring. Our collection partners have included Calvary Chapel campuses, all Regions Bank locations in the Melbourne area, Shelter Mortgage, Exit 1st Class Realty, Florida Today newspaper, and Blue Sky Insurance Company in Cocoa Village. Our school partners have included LaPetite Academy in Viera, and three KinderCare locations locally. We also have support from The Beach 98.5 FM Radio and Florida Today to help spread the word. Over the last several years, we have collected over 25,000 items for local shelters including the Space Coast Center for Mothers with Children and Serene Harbor Domestic Abuse Shelter.

EARLY LEARNING COALITION OF BREVARD

The Early Learning Coalition of Brevard and its generous community partners for the last five years have partnered with local community businesses to bring an amazing holiday season of giving to children in need. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, along with The Beach, 98.5 FM, and Health South Sea Pines Rehabilitation Hospital, has supported this remarkable event and continues to demonstrate its commitment to the community in so many ways. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® has been a special Toy Drive partner and continues to donate their valuable resources to assist with the collection of toys throughout the county every year!

Last year’s Toy Drive provided gifts to 136 children from 52 families. The recipients of the generously donated gifts were extremely grateful and emotional, and expressed much appreciation to the donors and the community as they received the gifts for their children. Many of the families were experiencing times of great transition and challenges such as homelessness and significant economic struggles. The Early Learning Coalition of Brevard serves 3,300 children a month through the School Readiness program which provides assistance with the high cost of quality child care for low- income working families.  While families work toward self-sufficiency, their children have access to early childhood education programs which prepare them for future school success. An additional 550 children are on the waiting list for such services.

DAILY BREAD

Recognized by Florida Today as the 2015 Volunteer Organization of the Year, Daily Bread’s volunteers serve the community with the vision of ensuring everyone has access to the food and social services necessary to become self-sufficient. More than just a soup kitchen that serves a large midday meal to an average of 234 people each day, Daily Bread provides services such as: access to showers, clean clothing, a mail stop, assistance in obtaining Florida identification, employment readiness, counseling, housing assistance, and health screenings.

Through local community partnerships, Daily Bread’s food distribution network collects and distributes over a million pounds of food to assist over 24 local food pantry partners. This is a new partnership and TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Brevard looks forward to working with Daily Bread for many years to come.

AWARDS AND RECOGNITION

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Brevard is proud to be the recipient of the Treasure Category for the “2017 Children’s Hero of the Year” award sponsored by Eckerd Kids. 

One of our Core Values at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® is “give back to the community”. The Brevard County Franchise fully believes in giving back, and we work with numerous organizations throughout each year to help families in need.  We were recognized for our work helping organizations such as Early Learning Coalition, Serene Harbor, Brevard Family Partnership, and the Michael-Gene Kids Basketball Foundation.

More than 45 years ago, Jack and Ruth Eckerd founded Eckerd Kids as a way to help 25 children and their families get a second chance. Since that pioneering day back in 1968, Eckerd Kids has helped nearly 200,000 families get the second chance that each of them deserves.

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Brevard is honored to have received this award in recognition of “giving back” to our community.
