Focused on Our Community
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Livonia strives to give back to the wonderful communities that have supported us and allowed us to flourish.
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Campaigns
Movers for Moms®
Each year, in April and May, as part of our Movers for Moms® program, we organize a collection of essential care items for women and children who are staying at First Step Shelter of Wayne. First Step is the only non-profit agency in out-Wayne County providng comprehensive services for victims of domestic and sexual violence.
In 2017, we collected over 1500 items with the help of our friends at Yazaki of North America, Little Tots, Achieve Charter Academy, and Kinder Care. If your company would like to be a 2018 collection partner, please give us a call!
Movers for Mutts
We appreciate Kroger at 1905 N. Canton Center and their generouse shoppers who donated pet food and supplies for our Movers for Mutts campaign this fall. We delivered the donations to the Michigan Humane Society in Westland. The Michigan Humane Society finds homes for thousands of animals each year. All animals deserve to be cared for and loved, homeless or not.
BLESSINGS IN A BACKPACK LIVONIA
Another great opportunity for us to give-back this year includes supporting Blessings in a Backpack. Blessings In a Backpack is a "neighbor-helping-neighbor" program that is designed to help meet the nutritional needs of children and families. Each week, volunteers distribute backpacks filled with enough non-perishable food for the weekend to "at-risk" students. The goal of the program is to keep these students from going hungry on the weekends and to remove barriers to academic success. We are very proud to help with the logistics of Blessings in a Backpack.
OPERATION GOOD CHEER
Each year, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Livonia picks up Christmas gift donations from local metro Detroit businesses. We deliver the gifts to volunteers at Operation Good Cheer. This year, 2017, OGC gathered and delivered just under 20,000 gifts thoughout Michigan. It took 34 trucking companies, 255 planes, and an army of volunteers to make Christmas happen for over 6,400 children in Michigan foster care homes.
