Movers for Moms®
Movers for Moms®
At TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, our core values are lived out on a daily basis across the country. The annual Movers for Moms® campaign is how we demonstrate the core value to Give Back to the Community. This community effort was created by TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® ten years ago to collect essential care items to mothers living in homeless or domestic abuse shelters. The goal is to provide moms with gifts each Mother’s Day, regardless of their situation.
The 2018 campaign was able to collect over 3,400 items to support Mel Trotter Ministries. Thank you to all of our Grand Rapids community partners for making this campaign such a success!
