Giving back to the Community
We love to partner with different organizations in Summit County, especially when they can utilize our moving skills. Below are some of the organizations we continuously help move forward. We also work with the American Heart Association, the Arthritis Foundation, the Alzheimer's Association, the Brimfield Community Cupboard, Habitat for Humanity, A Prom to Remember Ohio, Akron Charity Ball and Habitat for Humanity of Summit County.
We are teaming up this spring with local businesses for our Movers for Moms® community campaign. We are excited to have been participating in this national campaign for over ten years! Last year the national Movers for Moms® campaign was able to raise over 285,000 items for women and their families affected by domestic abuse. This year all of our donations will be given to the Battered Women’s Shelter of Summit and Medina Counties.
Our Akron franchise was able to collect over 1,100 donations for the Battered women's Shelter this past Movers for Moms® season! Thank you to everyone that donated!
To assist animal shelters that house and support animals in need of a permanent home, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Akron is hosting our annual Movers for Mutts® donation drive this fall.
Pets are considered an important part of any family, but this fall, many pets living in animal shelters could use the community’s support in securing adequate amounts of food, toys, and everyday living essentials for pets in need of their forever home. This year, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Akron is partnering with businesses to benefit area shelter The Humane Society of Summit County (HSSC). These locations will serve as drop-off points for the collection of essential pet items.
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Akron is also honored to donate $5.00 from every move during this year's drive to the HSSC.
Every donation sent from TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Akron's Movers for Mutts® will go towards supporting HSSC. This past Movers for Mutts® season we were able to collect over 700 items, and raise over $900.00 for The Humane Society of Summit county! Thank you to all of our drop-off locations and to you the community for donating to a worthy cause!
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Akron is proud to have been involved in the creation of LeBron James' Akron "I Promise" School! The school is a partnership between the LeBron James Family Foundation and Akron Public Schools. It is the culmination of LeBron's I PROMISE Program, which encourages kids to finish school. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Akron was glad to help in any way they could, this involved the physical moving in of the school!
We have been working with the Akron Children's Hospital Holiday Tree Festival for more than a decade! Each year we move 30-100 elaborately decorated Christmas trees to the "highest bidder's" home. We also help with set up and tear down for the annual event. We enjoy this event knowing that proceeds are helping children and families in need.
Each year we move hundreds of bikes for the Foundation's "Wheels for Education" initiative and we partner with them for the yearly PROMISE Project. It is wonderful working with the Foundation and the other community partners that know and understand that our children are our future!
"The LeBron James Family Foundation’s mission is to positively affect the lives of children and young adults through education and co-curricular educational initiatives. We believe that an education and living an active, healthy lifestyle is pivotal to the development of children and young adults."
For years we have been helping the shelter with their clients' moving needs to and from the shelter. When the Movers For Moms® campaign began, we knew the shelter had "other" needs that we could help with. The yearly donations gathered the month before Mother's Day has been a tremendous success in the Akron community.
"There is Hope... For families of violence, women, men and children who are in danger of physical, emotional, and sexual abuse. The Battered Women's Shelter of Summit and Medina Counties provides emergency services and supportive services to victims seeking to end family violence."
Unlike other agencies that focus on victims of all types of crime, BWS is the only agency in Summit/Medina county that focuses on family violence, intervention and prevention.
If you or your business would like to be more involved in our yearly Movers For Moms® campaign please email firstname.lastname@example.org
This will be our first year partnering with The Humane Society of Summit County and we couldn't be more excited! The Humane Society of Summit County (HSSC) cares and advocates for the abused, neglected, and abandoned animals of our community. Through education and support, we strengthen the bond between people and animals. HSSC rescues over 2700 animals annually and has served Summit County for over 50 years.
We are thrilled to announce that this year we were able to raise over 500 donations for the HSSC! Thank you to our amazing drop off donation locations and to all of you who donated!
It looks like this location doesn't have any upcoming events at this time. Check back again later!
