Movers with a Chattanooga Community Focus
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®/Chattanooga loves giving back to its community! From donating our services to collecting items for local organizations, we take pride in the efforts we have continued since beginning in 1999!
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Campaigns
Movers for Moms®
We stand by our core value to always give back to the community! We proudly dedicate our trucks, our team, and our time to the local community through outreach efforts like Movers for Moms®, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®’s collection drive for mothers and children in need. The campaign (in its 11th year!) centers around those who’ve suffered from domestic abuse or homelessness and currently staying at local women’s and family shelters, collecting donations of essential care items and gifts and arranging their delivery in honor of Mother’s Day.
Last Spring, Movers for Moms® collected more than 295,000 essential care items for women in hundreds of shelters across the nation. This year, our goal is 310,000 items.
Movers for Mutts®
Each year following Movers for Moms®, we coordinate another campaign of our choosing for a deserving cause in need. In 2015, our Movers for Mutts® Fall campaign was an all-around success! The donated items and funds were all delivered to the Humane Educational Society of Chattanooga to benefit their sheltered animals and the results were much to celebrate. We collected over 250 items by teaming up with other local businesses and raised $3,000 thanks to our amazing sponsor, Sun Tan City of the Chattanooga area. We appreciate each and every one of our participants for your positive contributions to our beautiful, animal-friendly community!
ALZHEIMER’S ASSOCIATION OF CHATTANOOGA
The mission of the Alzheimer’s Association is to eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research, to provide and enhance care and support for all affected, and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® is helping with this effort by sponsoring a mile marker at their Annual Run To Remember 5k race.
AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY
We continue to contribute to the American Cancer Society, our system-wide national charity of choice, by donating 10 cents of every move to the cause. Since 2001, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK has raised more than $400,000 benefiting local American Cancer Society programs in cities where franchises are located.
AMERICAN RED CROSS
The American Red Cross, established in 1881 by Clara Barton, has remained as passionate about providing assistance void of discrimination through its network of partners, volunteers, and donors since the institution first began. The voluntary relief movement is set forth by mobilizing life-saving services and programs to alleviate and further prevent human suffering.
BRIDGE REFUGEE SERVICES
Bridge Refugee Services is an ecumenical, non-profit organization facilitating the resettlement of refugees in East Tennessee. Most refugees arrive with little other than the clothes on their backs. As a resettlement agency, Bridge is responsible for furnishing apartments with basic furniture and household supplies for refugees. We donate our services to The Bridge by helping families move household items into their new homes. To date, Bridge has resettled hundreds of refugees from over a dozen different countries—including Liberia, Iraq, Moldova, Sudan, Burundi, Burma, and many others—helping them find hope and safety in East Tennessee.
CHATTANOOGA FURNITURE BANK
The Chattanooga Furniture Bank is helping people make the transition from homelessness to housing every day by providing gently used furniture free to qualified individuals and families. We partner with the Furniture Bank by picking up donations to bring to their center and by delivering furniture to individuals and families.
Chattanooga Room in the Inn
Chattanooga Room in the Inn is a shelter providing more than just housing and a warm, caring environment to homeless women and their children in our local area. CRITI bears free of charge services including three meals a day, access to affordable and sometimes free health care, parental classes, assistance with finding affordable housing and so much more. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK continuously helps Chattanooga Room in the Inn move their clients into new housing to help get them back on their feet.
HUMANE EDUCATIONAL SOCIETY OF CHATTANOOGA
Established in 1910, the Humane Educational Society is an open-door facility providing sheltor and care to homeless pets in our community. They not only make it possible to adopt, but also impart animal protection, pet licenses, and cruelty investigation services to its residents. HES remains committed to their cause of making Hamilton County a better place for pets by taking in 4,000-5,000 homeless pets each year!
SUSAN G. KOMEN FUND OF MID-MICHIGAN
We contribute regularly to the Susan G. Komen fund by participating in their Race for the Cure across the country, but mostly with our donations of $1 for every returned survey submitted by our customers following a move.
UNITED WAY OF GREATER CHATTANOOGA
According to the United Way of Greater Chattanooga, as many as 58 percent of Hamilton County’s public school students cannot afford to purchase school supplies. We donate our services each year to their Stuff The Bus school supply drive to help stock the Teacher Supply Depot’s shelves with supplies students need to be successful in school. We also donate our truck and movers to their Annual Day of Caring in September.
