Community Service in Downers Grove
Movers For Moms®
May is a special month for our franchise, because that means we are conducting the Movers for Moms® campaign! The campaign is nationwide for TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®! It starts earlier in the spring when we co-oridinate with local family charities to bring them much needed supplies donated by the public at designated drop-off points! We are very excited to start the 2017 campaign to build on the resounding success of 2016! Family Shelter Services in Downers Grove and Westmont, who serve the western suburbs, were 2016 recipients.
Movers For Mutts
This is our fun fall charity event! We collect much needed supplies in an effort to support local animal shelters that foster stray animals. We partner with local businesses to collect essential pet items.
In 2016, the animal shelters which received the donations were:
Hinsdale Humane Society, Hinsdale
Based in Hinsdale, IL, the organization is a not for profit, volunteer society that finds homes for stray cats and dogs. Families that cannot fully adopt pets are encouraged to become foster volunteers. Once vetted, families are provided with all the food, medication and equipment to care for the animals during the short time they are within the family home. This enables the shelter to deal with the large amounts of homeless animals.
Humane Haven Animal Shelter, Bolingbrook
The shelter aims to care for and place homeless pets with loving families. It also provides correct pet care education to these and other families. As a not-for-profit state licensed humane society, all money used in the operation comes from fundraising and private donations.
Help Save Pets, Plainfield
The shelter cares for abused, neglected and abandoned pets and finds compatable homes where they will thrive. Also a not-for-profit state licensed facility, it depends on donations and volunteer efforts such as ours to continue their good work.
