TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Campaigns
Movers for Moms®
Our location strives to become an integral part of the local community in which we work and play every day. Through our national Movers for Moms® program, we are able to partner up with other local businesses to aid women’s shelters with needed cosmetic and care products. Our collection efforts begin in early spring and culminate on Mother’s Day, with moms living in a shelter situation are given personal care items, along with children’s supplies – an effort to make them feel special on the holiday, even while being in a life transition.
Cheeriodicals is known for their " Big Green Boxes of Cheer". They have worked with many children's hospitals across the country. Cheeriodicals works with organizations to create team building activities where the sponsors come together to build the green boxes. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK has partnered with this amazing organization and has helped Cheeriodicals throughout the US. We've been privileged to be part of this. We picked up the boxes and delivered them to Florida Hospital for Children. We love seeing the faces of the children as they receive these special packages!
Find Feed Restore
Find Feed Restore takes travel trailers, whether purchased or donated and utilizes them as homes to take in homeless families with children who live in cars or tents. They place them in a stable environment and allow them to stay rent and utilities free for 4 months. They provide them with education and counseling to get them back on their feet. In 2017 we partnered with Find Feed Restore for our Movers for Moms® campaign. We collect items to help these families in need. We are so pleased to be able to be part of such a great organization.
Junior Service League of Port St. Joe
The Junior Service League of Port St. Joe is an organization of women committed to promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women, and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. They're committed to making Port Saint Joe a better community for all who live there. After the destruction of Hurricane Michael, they organized a toy drive to help brighten the holidays for families affected by the storm. We were happy to offer our small contribution by moving the toys to the gymnasium where volunteers distributed them to swarms of excited kids.
LifeStream - Anthony House
The Anthony House offers homeless families and individuals housing. They offer services to help get them back on their feet and become self-sufficient. In Spring 2018, our TWO MEN AND A TRUCK franchise collected items to donate this shelter. Each year we have our Movers for Moms® campaign where we collect essential items and deliver them on our around Mother's Day to make it a little more special for the moms in shelters.
Pathway Homes Inc.
Pathway Homes provides housing and support services for adults with mental illness and who are struggling financially. They are dedicated to ending homelessness in our community. Pathway Home, Inc. also provides services to these adults to help them retain their own housing. They offer non-time-limited housing, however, when these individuals are ready to be on their own, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Orlando is there to move them.
UCP of Central Florida
Grow a child's potential at UCP of Central Florida. UCP was founded in 1955 to help children with cerebral palsy and has evolved throughout its history to help children with any disability or developmental delay as well as children without disabilities. Today, UCP of Central Florida provides education, therapy, and support for children with and without disabilities through seven campuses across Central Florida. A few years our team moved their Seminole County school. Each year, we help them with their annual gala. We moved their auction items to this event and back.
Walk for Winnie
On September 29, 2018, our TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Orlando West and neighboring franchises were a proud sponsor and charitable moving partner in this year's Walk for Winnie. It was held at SeaWorld in Orlando. Over 2,500 families, NICU team members, and community partners came together to raise over $122,000 for the Alexander Center for Neonatology at Orlando Health Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies. Our team helped moved to and from SeaWorld and had a booth with goodies for the participants.
Drew Strochack, Development Manager at Orlando Health Foundation/Arnold Palmer Medical Center Foundation said, "Thank you to TWO MEN AND A TRUCK for sponsoring Walk for Winnie as well as supporting us through their charity move services. Their team was prompt, professional, and excited to support their community with this charity move. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK are truly "Movers who Care" and we are so grateful for their partnership!"
