Giving back to the St. Louis community
Living the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® mantra as the “Movers Who Care®” has given us the opportunity to grow beyond expectations while giving back to the community. In 2016 we donated over 1400 hours to local St. Louis area non-profits.
For the past 8 years we were proud to help brighten the holiday season through Toys for Tots. Our 2014 collaboration with our local Y98 radio station and The United States Marines, we collected toys from over 100 locations across the Metro St. Louis area. The campaign culminated in a two-day live broadcast from Gravois Bluffs shopping center, collecting almost two truckloads full of toys. An astonishing 104,236 toys were donated and $71,773 was collected during the campaign! We are excited to see how we can impact our local community in the future.

We deliver them to local women’s and family shelters in time for Mother’s Day. We have partnered with 12 Great Southern Bank locations in and around the St. Louis area as well as other area businesses. Our event has helped women at Lydia’s House and The Women’s Safe House. We are grateful to be able to work with such amazing organizations. In 2016 we collected over 10,000 items! This year we have partnered with Our Lady's Inn.

"These fine folks have partnered with our charity to provide furniture for service members and veterans. Like clockwork, each month since 2011, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® drivers have picked up home furnishings from the Rothman distribution center in O’Fallon, MO and delivered them to our Fenton facility, a distance of over 35 miles, all with their own manpower and at no charge. Over the years, more than 1000 military families have been helped through this relationship including military families who have experienced fires, floods, and homelessness. On behalf of the board of directors, the executives, the staff, our thousands of volunteers, and the military families we serve, thank you for engendering a corporate culture which makes this great goodness possible not only for us, but for countless charities across the Nation."
