TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Trivia!
When the American Cancer Society was created in 1913, they had a goal of eliminating cancer completely. That's a goal we can stand behind!
Here at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, giving back to the community has been one of our core values since our very first year of business when our founder Mary Ellen Sheets donated every dollar of profit to 10 different local charities. Since the inception of our American Cancer Society donation program in 2000, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® has donated over $570,000 and our donation amount continues to grow every year!! Give us a call if you'd like to learn more about our local charitable involvement, I hope you have a while to talk, it a looooong list!
