Dedicated to our Lincoln community
We love our local community and want to do anything we can to support the great people in it. We are active in LIBA, Lincoln Chamber Of Commerce & the BBB.
Helping In Time Of A Disaster
In June 16, 2014, an EF4 tornado swept through the small town of Pilger, NE. The residents of Lincoln were eager to help in any way they could. A local radio station KLIN held a donation drive for the needs of the residents of Pilger. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® donated a truck and labor to collect the donated items and deliver to a central location in Pilger.
Foster Care Closet
The Foster Care Closet was started by Leigh Esau and her husband, Patrick in 2006. They saw a need for a better way of fostering after they became foster parents; the children were brought to their home with solely the clothes they were wearing. She started out in her home with items donated by friends and neighbors. Leigh quickly outgrew her home, so TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® of Lincoln donated a truck and labor to move her into her new intake facility. When Joplin, Mo., was torn apart by an EF5 tornado, Leigh immediately organized a clothing drive and asked our help in delivering the clothing and help in setting up a distribution site which we gladly helped her accomplish.
Friendship Home was established in 1978, as a shelter run by nuns for women and children to reside in when they come to Lincoln to visit loved ones who are either in prison or in a hospital. The organization quickly realized most of the people who came to the shelter were victims of domestic violence and abuse. Now, it is a safe haven for families to learn to transition back into the world without violence. Recently , TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® of Lincoln donates a resources to assist in moving victims of domestic abuse to a safe house provided by the Friendship

The Capital Humane Society is an advocate for animals and educates the public about how to care for their pets responsibly. Every year they hold a fundraising event called Tail's and Ties Annual Dinner in which items and services donated are auctioned off and TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® donate their services to deliver the items to the winning bidders.

This year is flying by, and Veterans Day will be here before we know it! This special day is a time for our entire country to thank those who have served our country and bravely fought to ensure the freedoms and comforts we enjoy each day. If you have followed our company in the past, you know the veteran community is very near to our hearts. Each year, we plan a collection drive with a local nonprofit company that will benefit veterans in need. This year, we are partnering with People's city Mission to collect essential items that we take for granted.

One Day Without Shoes
Each year in April Cornhusker Bank partners with People's City Mission and TWO MEN AND A TRUCK to collect shoes for the less fortunate in the Lincoln community. "Last year’s event brought in 28,000 pairs of shoes. This year’s goal is lofty but we know that with your support, it is attainable. Can you help us reach 30,000 pairs of shoes for Lincoln’s homeless and impoverished?!" We are so pleased to be a part of this event and we can only hope that each year continues to grow larger! For more information on where to donate and how to get involved, contact the Peoples City Mission at 402.475.1303.
Peoples City Mission
The People's City Mission was started in 1907 by local churches offering shelter and food to those in need. Today, the mission serves approximately 30,000 people in the Lincoln area. They are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. In addition, they offer an emergency shelter for individuals to reside for 24 to 48 hours. Every guest of the shelter is provided with three meals a day, a bed, a shower, and hygiene products. There is also an extended stay shelter for families or women and children of domestic violence. When living in the shelter, the individuals have the ability to attend classes that focus on living independently, personal care, and life skills. Additionally, every inhabitant completes volunteer work. The mission also offers a free medical facility for people who do not have medical insurance or cannot afford to pay for medical care. It is run by retired or practicing doctors and other medical professionals who are volunteering their services.
Starry Nights Christmas Tree Festival
If you could only choose one holiday event to go to this year, this is it! Each year People's City Mission organizes this event in which numerous Christmas trees are sponsored by local businesses and elaborately decorated by extremely talented local artists. Once completed the trees are auctioned off, with the proceeds going to the People’s City Mission. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® of Lincoln is always there to volunteer their services to deliver the trees to the winning bidders.
