Crisis Assistance Ministry
Crisis Assistance Ministry provides assistance and advocacy for people in financial crisis, helping them move toward self-sufficiency. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Charlotte has partnered with Crisis Assistance Ministry for several years picking up furniture donations for their Furniture Bank. This free furniture is used to outfit the homes of people who are transitioning out of homelessness. Most recently, we assisted in the pickup and delivery of a large gift--an entire hotel’s bedroom suites!
Classroom Central equips students living in poverty to effectively learn by collecting and distributing free school supplies. They serve over 100,000 students in 6 school districts. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® participates in the Backpacks & Basics program by transporting and assisting in the distribution of free school supplies and backpacks to the entire student body of some of the highest need schools. We visited 9 schools in the 2017-18 school year and handed out over 7,000 backpacks filled with school supplies.
Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte
The Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte opened its doors in 2011 to provide families of children being treated in area medical facilities with a safe, affordable and caring “home away from home.” TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Charlotte has been a proud partner even before the first guests were checked in by storing all of the House’s furnishings and moving them in free of charge. Today, we handle all overflow storage needs and our office staff volunteers to cook dinner for the families throughout the year.
Salvation Army of Greater Charlotte
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Charlotte has handled various moves for the Salvation Army of Greater Charlotte, including the moving of their Charlotte offices, transporting brand new washers and dryers to their Supportive Housing Innovative Partnership, and providing mobile drop-off points for their Angel Tree program in December.
Carolina Breast Friends
Carolina Breast Friends is committed to uniting and helping women with breast cancer in all stages of survival. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Charlotte moved Carolina Breast Friends into the Pink House in 2010 and assists with various storage needs. The Pink House is a “one-stop shop” serving breast cancer survivors in numerous ways including providing wellness education, mentoring and a nutrition center. During breast cancer awareness month in October, we sell pink moving boxes with a portion of all sales going towards Carolina Breast Friends' initiatives.
Baptist Children's Homes
Baptist Children's Homes provides programs and services for children of all ages, teen mothers, single mothers and their children, developmentally disabled adults, as well as frail and aging adults in a caring culture of measurable excellence. Every May, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Charlotte gathers canned food donations across the Metrolina region as part of their Food Roundup collection drive.
Community School of the Arts
Community School of the Arts transforms lives and inspires community through outstanding and accessible arts education. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Charlotte helps out in any way possible, whether it is storing a 53’ trailer’s worth of donations courtesy of the Today Show’s Al Roker, or moving pianos across town for a student recital.
Habitat for Humanity Charlotte
Habitat for Humanity Charlotte seeks to put love into action by building strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter. Since 1983, Habitat for Humanity Charlotte has served more than 1,600 local families. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Charlotte is thrilled to help be a part of their big day by providing free moving-in services to their new homes!
