Committed to the Columbia Community
As the largest franchised moving company in North America, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® has an enormous reach with so many opportunities to help out in the many communities we are part of. Not only that, but one of our core principles as a business is to give back to our community as much as possible. Here in Columbia, SC, we try to remain active in local events and charities throughout the year by collecting donations, offering our services, and just helping out any way we can. We are so proud to be in a position to help others overcome life's difficult challenges and we are committed to that effort wherever there is an opportunity.
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Campaigns
Movers for Moms®
Every Spring, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® of Columbia sets donation boxes throughout our community to collect clothing, blankets, and essential care items from across the city. Then, around Mother's Day weekend, we pick up and deliver all of those items to our local women's/family shelter, Hannah House. This program, Movers for Moms®, was founded in 2008 with the purpoce of collecting essential items for women forced to stay in a shelter for Mother's Day. There are currently over 300 TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® franchises all over the country participating in this annual effort.
Movers for Mutts®
This fall, we are hosting our first Movers for Mutts campaign benefiting Pawmetto Lifeline, a non-profit rescue in Columbia. We are collecting items of need at a few locations around Downtown Columbia, such as Sweet Cream Co., Mast General Store, Blue Flour Bakery, and Cupcake Downsouth, to donate to the shelter. Some items on the shelter's wishlist include leashes, collars, dog and cat toys, blankets, paper towels, and much more. Anything you are willing to give will make an impact for Pawmetto Lifeline. With so many misplaced animals in and around the Midlands, every donation counts!
Truckload of Warmth®
Along with the Movers For Moms® program, we also participate in the annual Truckload of Warmth® collection. Our aim is to support local families in need during the harsh winter months by collecting new or gently used coats, hats, gloves, scarves, and any other winter items that may be needed. We partner with local businesses, schools, and various organizations leading up to the holidays and collect all donations for delivery around the end of November.
CAMP KEMO Programs are a variety of psychosocial programs that were developed to meet the needs of patients, siblings and parents who face the challenges created by cancer. Treating cancer in children requires a careful balance of services to meet the physical, emotional and social needs of the entire family. CAMP KEMO Programs of Palmetto Health Children’s Hospital are designed to educate, inspire and support the entire family so that life is more manageable and enjoyable. Each year, we help out by delivering camp supplies at the beginning of the season. Later on, at the end of the program, we return to pack it all back up until the next time.
The Junior League of Columbia, Inc. is a women's organization committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable. JLC volunteers have been active in numerous local organizations and worthy programs since 1924. Along with providing volunteer hours, they also give financial support, and assist in leadership for many organizations in the Midlands. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® is proud to assist the Junior League by picking up and delivering donated goods as well as providing simple moving service during events such as their annual Clean Sweep or the very popular Holiday Market.
South Carolina's Mental Illness Recovery Center, Inc., also known as MIRCI, has been an active social rehabilitation program since 1960. In the years since, they have expanded their reach to provide a wide variety of other assistance programs to individuals recovering from severe mental illness. From benefits and housing assistance to behavioral health care support, MIRCI offers so many avenues to help those in need obtain self-confidence, become better adjusted, and live independently within their community. They also provide both adult and youth outreach programs to assist our city's homeless or at-risk community. For years, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® has proudly offered its services by helping to relocate those in need with the guidance of the dedicated staff at MIRCI and their amazing partners.
