Community Service in Livingston, Shiawassee Counties and the surrounding areas
We love our community and we feel privileged to be able to support many of the great events that happen throughout Livingston County. Community Involvement is essential to our core value of "Giving Back" and our local chambers of Commerce; The Howell Area Chamber of Commerce, Greater Brighton Area Chamber of Commerce and Hartland Chamber of Commerce put on many amazing events that attract thousands of visitors each year and allow us an opportunity to engage with our community. If you see us at one of these events, please stop and say hello! We look forward to meeting you!
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Campaigns
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.
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.
Howell Area Chamber of Commerce
We are active members in our community with organizations such as the Brighton Chamber of Commerce, the Howell Chamber of Commerce, and the Livingston Home Show. We also donate time and we are dedicated partners of the Lacasa Center, Toys for Tots, Festival of Lights, Taste of Livingston, Brighton's Smokin' Jazz and BBQ Blues Festival, The Chamber Golf Classic, and the Michigan Challenge Balloonfest so do not be surprised if you see us out and about in our trucks at these events.
We help sponsor several events with the Howell Area Chamber including the Livingston Home Show, Michigan Challenge Balloonfest and the Fantasy of Lights Parade. We love our community and are proud to be able to give back.
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.
Michigan Challenge Balloonfest
This exciting summer event offers something for everyone and is a 3 day celebration that includes: skydiving and stunt kite shows, carnival rides, kid attractions, fireworks, and balloon launches, fly-ins, evening glow and a craft fair.
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!
The Livingston County Home Show
Local vendors come together to put all of your home and garden needs under one roof! Start your spring off with a weekend trip to the Livingston County Home Show. You will be sure to see one of our trucks at the event and you can always stop by our booth to get information for any of your moving and storage needs.
