TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Campaigns
Movers for Moms®
Mother's Day should always be a special holiday celebrated by each and every mother - regardless of her circumstances. Each spring, our franchise is proud to participate within one of our largest corporate campaigns, Movers for Moms® , reconfirming our core principles of volunteerism and giving back to the community. In an effort to promote this vision, we at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Memphis partner with local businesses to collect essential care items for women and children who are victims of domestic assault and homelessness. The items collected will be delivered to our two partnering foundations, Fayette Cares and YWCA of Greater Memphis ,on/before Mother's Day. In 2018, the entire TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® system collected over 365,000 donation items for moms in need across the country; and since the beginning of the Mover For Moms® program, we have collected over 1,000,000 items!
