Moving our community forward

As a local business, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Kane/DuPage has been giving back to the community since we opened our doors. We are proud to support the following local organizations with time, trucks, and treasure.

Movers for Mutts

We are thrilled to introduce our fall charity campaign, Movers for Mutts. Kicking off on National Mutts Day (July 31) and running through Labor Day (Sept 4) our locations in North Aurora and Crystal Lake with the help from all of our partnering donation drop-off sites, will be collecting much needed items and donations for Anderson Animal Shelter in South Elgin.

Did you know that 79% of households in the United States have either a dog or cat? Pets are considered an important part of any family; however, many pets are stray or at-risk and rely on the support from local animal shelters. 6.5 million companion animals enter shelters every year according to the ASPCA.

Many shelters such as the Anderson Animal Shelter are non-profit organizations receiving no state or federal funding. That's why TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® locations across the nation reach out to our communities through our Movers for Mutts program to ask for your support securing needed items for a local animal shelter.

With the help from our partners; Aspen Place, TGM Springbrook, Hunter's Glen at Oakhurst, Orchard Village, Extra Space Storage, Residence at Mill Creek, RE/MAX Excels, Ashford at St. Charles, Prairie Pointe, River Glen, Autumn Leaves, Tapestry Naperville, Arbors of Brookdale, Dwell at Naperville, Fairways of Naperville, The Apartments at Kirkland Crossing and Railway Plaza, we hope to make this drive a huge success and help the shelter receive the many items they need to care for the animals.

If you would like the shelters "Wish List" or you have any questions, please email or call our office.

Movers for Moms®

Each Spring, we participate in the Movers for Moms® Campaign. A charitable program centered on giving back to mothers in need for Mother's Day.

In 2017, with the help from our partners; Kane County Cougars, the Fox Valley Ice Arena, the Aurora Public Library, Residence at Mill Creek, TGM Springbrook, Legacy at Fox Valley, Orchard Village, Arbors of Brookdale, Autumn Run, Tapestry Naperville, AMLI at Naperville and Aspen Place we collected nearly 800 items for Moms at Lazarus House and Mutual Ground. Although our nationwide goal this year was to collect 300,000 donated essential care items for moms in need, we collected more than 295,000 items for moms in need!

MOVERS FOR MEALS

Movers for Meals is a nationwide drive to help support local families facing hunger crises. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® locations host the Movers for Meals food drive each fall. This year TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Kane/DuPage teamed with Northern Illinois Food Bank participating in their food drive Neighbors Feeding Neighbors. In just three weeks, we were able to provide hungry seniors, families and children in our community with over $6300 worth of food. We look forward to continuing support for our local food bank.

Partnerships and Organizations

The Holmstad

Every year we volunteer our time to help The Holmstad residents with chores that they can't quite do themselves. Whether its flipping their mattress, moving furniture so they can vacuum or bring down their boxes of Christmas decorations from the closet, we are there to help. We also set up and take down The Holmstad's many Christmas trees throught the entire facility. We love the smiles on their faces when they see their beautiful Christmas trees being set up.

Operation Christmas Child

We take great pride in assisting the Springbrook Community Church make Operation Christmas Child happen. They collect hundreds of shoeboxes filled with items that will be shipped oversees to children in need. The donated shoeboxes are all packaged in larger boxes and we transport them to the shipping company. It is so much fund every year and so heartwarming thinking about the joy these shoeboxes will bring to children around the world!

Toys for Tots

It is very important for us to help needy families in our local communities as well. We had such a great

experience with Toys For Tots. We have been so luck to be able to assist them with their donation box collection, toy sorting and distribution to the children. Seeing a child in need get to choose their own brand new toy for Christmas is unforgetable.

DUKANE  A.B.A.T.E. TOY AND FOOD RUN

Proud to support DuKane A.B.A.T.E. and their annual food and toy run by providing them with needed boxes for their collections. We are always honored to work with great people doing wonderful things for our community.  A.B.A.T.E. (A Brotherhood Aimed Towards Education) is a motorcyclists rights organization dedicated to preserving motorcycle, off-road, & ATV riders rights through education, safety, awareness, and political activities.

GENEVA CHAMBER OF COMMERCE

We are proud members of the Geneva Chamber of Commerce supporting their Swedish Days and Festival of the Vine events annually.
