TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Campaigns
MOVERS FOR MILITARY
As a way to show our appreciation to veterans past and present, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® hosts a Movers for Military collection drive to provide essential items to homeless veterans and their families living in crisis. This campaign kicks off each fall and ends on Veteran's Day.
Tragic statistics from the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans state that about one third of the adult homeless population in the US is veterans. About 131,000 veterans are homeless on any given night, and over the course of a year approximately twice that experience homelessness. About 1.5 million other veterans are considered at risk of homelessness due to lack of support networks and dismal living conditions in overcrowded or substandard housing.
Movers for Moms®
Giving back to our community is a vital part of our business. Eight years ago we kicked off participation in TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®’s own program, Movers for Moms®. This program, which began with all Michigan TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® franchises, collects essential care items for mothers living in domestic abuse or homeless shelters around the time of Mother’s Day. By working with partners like the Rainbow Child Care Center, Marco's Pizza in Brighton, Brighton Ford, Hartland Consolidated Schools, Maple Tree Montessori, and Teddy Bears Playhouse, we have collected thousands of items over the years to donate to the La Casa shelter in Howell.
Brighton Chamber of Commerce
The GBACoC is a regional chamber has members from Livingston County and southeast Michigan. They provide many opportunities to their members for growth, education and partnership. In addition, there are some great events put on by the Greater Brighton Area Chamber such as the Smokin' Jazz and BBQ Blues Festival and Holiday Glow. We are very proud to be sponsors for these events.
Fantasy of Lights Parade
An old fashioned downtown parade in the City of Howell the day after Thanksgiving to kick off the holiday season. The event kicks off with a 5K run. Add in some hot chocolate, Christmas lights, and local downtown businesses. You can't ask for a better way to spend a chilly evening!
