Community Involvement in Nashville
Since our Nashville franchise opened in 1995, we’ve been committed to supporting our community by donating our time, moving services, and resources to local non-profits. Right now, we're preparing for our third annual Movers for Mutts donation drive benefiting the homeless pets at Nashville Humane Association. Visit our blog to read more about this fun initiative!
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Campaigns
Movers for Moms®
This was our fourth year collecting donations for the homeless moms of Safe Haven in an effort to give them needed gifts for Mother’s Day. Last year, we collected over 3,700 donations for these deserving moms, and this year we collected over 9,000! We picked up donations with purple bins all over Davidson County throughout March and April. Then, on April 22, we hosted the first annual Movers for Moms® Festival to benefit Safe Haven.
Movers for Mutts®
Last summer, we hosted our second annual Movers for Mutts® campaign benefiting the Nashville Humane Association. We were able to collect over 10,400 donations for homeless pets in need! This year, we're hosting an online Photo and Video Contest where you can submit pictures and clips of your pets showing off their cuteness and special talents. Visit our contest page for more information about the rules and prizes you can win!
Catholic Charities of Tennessee
Our local chapter of Catholic Charities is committed to supporting people in need all over the state. We're honored to donate our moving services to support Catholic Charities' refugee housing program in the Greater Nashville region, as well as picking up bulk donations made to this non-profit! If you would like to donate some unneeded furniture to this organization, please call the Catholic Charities office to set up your free pick-up service.
FiftyForward is one of our favorite community partners because they also support seniors in the community! Anyone 50+ years old can join their local Fifty Forward center to meet new friends, continue their journey of life-long learning, and participate in fun events and activities. Our marketer, Jenni, serves on the founding junior board for this organization.
HABITAT FOR HUMANITY OF GREATER NASHVILLE
We love Habitat for Humanity's mission of not only providing interest-free home loans to families in need, but also providing them with free financial planning! To do our part in "moving" these families forward, we provide free moves for two of these families each month during the Fall, Winter, and Spring seasons. We also stay involved in Habitat Nashville's signature Women Build events for families led by strong women.
MONROE CARELL JR. CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL AT VANDERBILT
We are proud supporters of the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt because they never turn a family away due to inability to pay, and they're completely not-for-profit. We always sponsor 107.5 The River's annual radiothon to raise money for this great organization! We also deliver hundreds of "Boxes of Cheer" to kids at the hospital when the Cheeriodicals team packages coloring books, stuffed animals, and other fun treats for children needing long-term care.
The PENCIL Foundation does tons of great things for impoverished K-12 students in Nashville, but we work with them to specifically support Park Avenue Elementary, a school right down the street from our office. At Park Avenue, over half of the students are living in poverty. We provide free moving services for their incoming teachers, run an annual coat drive for their students each year, and volunteer for their events whenever possible.
ST. JUDE CHILDREN'S RESEARCH HOSPITAL
At the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, young cancer patients receive completely free treatment, and their families never have to pay for a meal or housing while they stay at the hospital. We were so honored to be a sponsor of the annual St. Jude radiothon, hosted by our local radio station The Big 98. Every weekday morning, you'll be able to hear us highlight one of St. Jude's "Partners In Hope" who has committed to donating to the hospital every month!
TENNESSEE RESPITE COALITION
One of our company values is THE GRANDMA RULE® which states that we will treat every one of our customers the way we would treat our own grandmothers... Especially because we often work with grandmothers in the community! While we take care of your grandma, the Tennessee Respite Coalition takes care of you, or whoever has the responsibility of caring full-time for your elderly relatives. They provide temporary rest and relief for all of our community's full-time caregivers. We support the TRC by participating in their Marketing Committee.
