Movers with a Chattanooga Community Focus

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK loves giving back to the community. From donating our services to the Chattanooga Furniture Bank and the United Way of Greater Chattanooga, to collecting items for local organizations through our Mover for Mutts and Movers for Moms® campaigns.

Movers for Moms®

Each year we coordinate with local women's shelters during our Movers for Moms® campaign. We have worked with the Partnership for Families in the past and it has been very successful. This year, we are partnering with the Chattanooga Room In the Inn, a shelter for homeless women and children in our local area. Movers for Moms® is our yearly pledge to helping families and women in need for Mother's Day. Chattanooga Room In the Inn provides housing and a warm, caring environment to women and their children who are homeless. We support them by donating much needed household and essential care items.

Our 2017 Movers for Moms® effort starts February 1st and will run until May 10th. If you are interested in becoming a drop off location give us a call! The following items are requested by the Chattanooga Room in the Inn:

 

Personal Care Items (Soaps and Cleansers)                           

Paper Products such as Tissues and Paper Towels

Diapers, sizes 4, 5, and 6

Women’s Socks and Underclothes

Baby Monitors                                  

Umbrellas

Powdered Laundry Detergent

Movers for Mutts

In November 2014 we ran our first Movers for Mutts campaign and saw great success. We were able to donate nearly 400 items to a local animal shelter in need of constant donations. We completed our 2015 Movers for Mutts charity drive on December 1st. We met our donation goal and our event partner Sun Tan City exceeded theirs! They raised $3000 with their rescue spray event. All of the donations and proceeds went to benefit the animals at The Humane Educational Society of Chattanooga.

Partnerships and Organizations

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.

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.

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.

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.

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® raised more than $400,000 with the donated money benefiting local American Cancer Society programs in cities where franchises are located.
