Giving back to the community

We believe in being active members of the community and show this through our involvement with many local events and charities by donating our time, resources and services.  We also participate in a few special annual initiatives, such as the Bountiful Program, Movers for Moms® and the Covenant House Executive Sleep Out.  

BOUNTIFUL BOX PROGRAM   

This December will mark the third year that our office will assist the Salvation Army with their Bountiful Box Program. Since 2014, we have delivered more than 25,000 boxes of meals and vouchers to needy families in Metro Detroit. We have worked alongside an awesome, talented group of people and look forward to assisting this event in the future. On Oct. 19, 2016 Ashley, our general manager, accepted the "Doing the Most Good" award for Southeast Michigan for her hard work and dedication to this program.  

MOVERS FOR MOMS®

Movers for Moms® is a program that TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® started in 2008 to help collect essential care items for women living in homeless shelters or domestic violence victims.  Our office collects items from early March until the Thursday prior to Mother's Day.  This year we had some amazing partners that helped us really reach out into the community and get some truly amazing items!  Wish list items include but not limited to soaps, lotions, shampoos, personal hygiene items, diapers, wipes and anything you believe will make mom feel special on Mother's Day! On May 6, 2016 our final item count was 1,581 items that were delivered to our local women and children shelter.  We would like to thank our partners, Catholic Vantage Financial Credit Union, LaFontaine Toyota, Catholic Vantage Financial and Sir Speedy for your hard work and generosity.  We couldn't have done it without you! If you would like more information on becoming a partner for 2017 or simply just like more information on the program, please call our office and ask for Ashley.  

NOW ACCEPTING DONATIONS FOR 2017

COVENANT HOUSE

On November 20, 2014 we partnered up with Covenant House Michigan, a sanctuary for abused and neglected youth for their annual Executive Sleep Out.  The goal of the sleepout is to raise awareness for homeless youth and to provide them with basic life necessities lsuch as food, shelter, clothing and life skills. We stood alongside over 200 people for a candlelight vigil before crawling into our TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® boxes and huddled into sleeping bags to endure a brutally cold night of rain/snow mix with temps dropping into the high teen's.  The event raised $250,000 and brought awareness to the 5,000+ teens that are living in the streets of Detroit.  

On November 19, 2015 75 business leaders, including our General Manager, Ashley Allen once again took to the cold, dark streets to spend a night on the pavement.  TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® again donated boxes to sleep in while The Empowerment Plan provided convertable jackets for added warmth.  Local sponsors and donations pooled in and over $340,000 was raised to help continue to support and raise awareness for homeless youth.  

November 17, 2016 marked the third year of our partnership with the Executive Sleep Out.  Together with over 60 Metro Detroit Professionals, our General Manager Ashley traded in her bed for a box and braved the cold weather to help raise awareness for youth homelessness. So far over $347,000.00 has been raised through this event to help benefit Southeast Michigan.  We have already committed ourselves for another year and can't wait to see everyone again!
