Community Service in Ann Arbor
We love supporting our local community in a variety of ways, from 5K runs with GOTR Southeast Michigan, filling a truck for Toys for Tots or helping with set up and tear down at the March of Dimes and Making Strides against Breast Cancer
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Campaigns
Movers for Military
Fall means one thing and that is our Movers for Military collection drive. Once again it is with the help of Michigan Ability Partners that we are able to provide much needed personal care and toiletry items to vets in need in the Washtenaw County Area.
Movers for Moms®
We have been part of the national TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® program Movers for Moms® since it began in 2007 and have been able to provide much needed items for people within our community. Through this program, we work with the community to collect essential care items for local mothers in need. With the help of the National Heritage Association Schools we have collected thousands of household items to assist with the care of individuals at the Safe House Shelter.
FRIENDS IN DEED
We always look forward to the special events each year where we can give back to the community but it is the day-to-day assistance that makes the biggest impact in peoples’ lives. We have been a faithful partner with Friends in Deed, donating our time to pick up and drop off furniture items that have been donated to this great organization.
Along with the Toys for Tots program during the holidays, we work throughout the year giving assistance to the Ann Arbor Salvation Army, helping them with pickup and deliveries whenever help is needed.

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks are the largest network of breast cancer awareness events in the nation, uniting communities with a shared determination to help free the world from the pain and suffering of breast cancer. Passionate walk participants raise critical funds that enable the American Cancer Society to fund innovative research; provide free, information and support to anyone touched by breast cancer; and help people reduce their breast cancer risk or find it early when it’s most treatable. We are proud supporters of the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of Ann Arbor events!

March of Dimes raises money and awareness of infants in the NICU. The funds raised form the walks helps these babies receive the critical care they need so they are able to go home to be with their families. We are a proud supporter and sponser of the Ann Arbor/Hudson Mills Walk which will take place on Sunday, May 21, 2017 at:

MICHIGAN ABILITY PARTNERS
Deb Beagle, Development Director for Michigan Ability Partners had the following message about working with our Ann Arbor office. "MAP partners with veterans and people who have disabilities in support of their self-directed transformation to self-sufficiency. Together with TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® we have joined forces to help those in need of our community. Under the blanket of Movers for Military we have successfully campaigned for homeless veterans in our area. We have also worked with TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® moving our clinets from transitional housing to more permanent supported housing.
The Ann Arbor Blues Festival
Ann Arbor Blues and Jazz Festival has had a very eclectic history since its beginning in 1969 with support from the University of Michigan. Although venues have changed over the years and the festival itself has had a variety of different supporters, it continues to be a great family friendly event still held outside and attracting big name talent. Currently managed by James Partridge of the Ann Arbor Blues Society, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK is happy to sponsor such a great attraction to the Ann Arbor Community.
Team building events can be great fun and can also leave a lasting impact on those involved. Cheeriodicals works with businesses to organize team building events to pack "boxes of cheer" for sick veterans and children. Across the nation, Cheeriodicals partners with hospitals, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK locations and interested businesses to pack boxes full of puzzles, games, snacks, a new bathrobe or plush toy and get them to adults and children who may need a reason to smile.
