Giving back to the community
As a locally owned and operated business, it is very important for us to give back our community. Aside from our annual campaigns, Movers for Moms® and Movers for Mutts®, our staff members regularly volunteer their time in the community. The ALS Association, Girls on the Run, Ace & TJ's Grin Kids, Family Guidance Center and My Sister's House are organizations we regularly work with throughout the year. We have also received the Patriotic Employer Award for supporting employees currently serving in the National Guard.
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Campaigns
Movers for Moms®
Movers for Moms® is a charity initiative created to help collect donations for women and children in need. We partner with local business in the community to collect essential items women and children in shelters will need. On or before Mother's Day, these items are delivered to homeless and domestic abuse shelters in hopes of easing the burden these families feel in their current situations. In 2017, we were able to collect over 1,000 items for Fifth Street Ministries and Family Guidance Center's Domestic Violence Shelter! Thank you to everyone who made last year's campaign such a success.
We recently wrapped up our 2018 campaign and were able to donated more than DOUBLE what we did last year! Thanks to the help of our community partners Morningstar Storage, South-Iredell Chamber of Commerce , Salon Envy and the participants of the GOTR Spring 5K, we were able to donate over 2,300 items this year! Thank you to everyone who helped us make Mother's Day great for so many moms in need.
Movers for Mutts®
In 2017, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Mooresville launched a fall charity campaign, Movers for Mutts® for the first time! We partnered with the Lake Norman Humane Society to collect donations that their amazing organization needed the most. They spend so much time and energy helping those animals who are need of love and help, donations from the community allow them to continue their hard-work with a little less burden; thank you to our community partners who so graciously helped us collect items this year: The Feed Bucket, Hawthorne at Mooresville Apartments, Village Paws & Claws and George Pappas' Victory Lanes. Remember, donations can always be made to the humane society directly online at: http://lakenormanhumane.org/!
ACE AND TJ'S GRIN KIDS
This charity organization was created by local radio personalities Ace and TJ with the purpose of being able to send chronically diasabled or terminally ill children to Disney World for a truly memorable trip! For the last three years, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Mooresville has donated a truck and our employees to pick up the donations collected here in North Carolina and deliver them to Florida in time for their special event. Ace & TJ's Grin Kids is always accepting donations if anyone would like to give to this amazing charity. Be sure to "like" their Facebook page for updates and additional information about the charity: https://www.facebook.com/GrinKids/
Girls on the Run
For several years now, we have helped the Girls on the Run of the Greater Piedmont set up their annual Spring 5K. This year, we're very happy that we can not only do that but also partner with them to make our annual Movers for Moms campaign even better! Girls on the Run is a program created to help girls from 3rd to 8th grade develop socially, physically and psychologically through programs that are based on physical activity. Because a large portion of this program is teaching the participants to give back to the community, we all thought a Movers for Moms drive would be a perfect fit during the Spring 5K on Saturday, May 12. We'll be posting updates as we near closer to the event!
