TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Campaigns
Movers for Moms®
Success! Movers for Moms 2019 delivers for local families in shelter
Movers for Moms® is a nationwide campaign started twelve years ago by TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® as a way to help local families in crisis. Each spring, we collect essential items for local domestic abuse shelters and deliver them in time for Mother's Day. In 2019, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Fort Worth and Arlington collected 2,711 items for Safe Haven of Tarrant County, with shelter locations in Arlington and Fort Worth.

Marine Toys for Tots
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Arlington has worked with the Marine Toys for Tots Fort Worth campaign for several years, donating hundreds of hours in labor and services. In 2018, we were at the Mansfield ISD Toys for Tots Collection Event, where the community helped us pack three huge moving trucks with more than toys and bikes! We loaded them up and transported them to the Toys for Tots warehouse in Farmers Branch, Texas. Later in the month, we transported another four trucks' worth of bikes and toys which had been collected by Mansfield schools. We're proud to be a part of such a giving community, and look forward to working with the Marines again in 2019!
SafeHaven of Tarrant County
SafeHaven's goal is to end domestic violence by advocating safety, support, prevention, and social change. Their two emergency shelters are able to provide 24-hour care to families in crisis, especially life-threatening situations. With 164 beds in total, they also provide meals, transportation, clothing, counseling services, activities for children, medical and dental care, and case management - all at no cost to the client. If you need assistance, contact them at 1-877-701-SAFE (7233).
Operation Finally Home
Operation Finally Home is a non-profit organization that provides mortgage-free, newly-built homes to US Veterans who have become wounded, ill, or injured through their service. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Arlington works with Operation Finally Home in the Arlington/Fort Worth area by donating our labor and moving services to these families who have sacrificed so much for our freedom. In 2018 we moved the Ewing family to Saginaw, TX as well as the Ashby family, who moved to Fort Worth. In 2019, we look forward to moving the Ferris family to Weatherford, Texas. We're happy to help these deserving Veterans and their families, and look forward to a longstanding partnership with Operation Finally Home.
Don't Forget to Feed Me
Don't Forget to Feed Me provides pet food to those in need in North Texas. By collecting pet food from generous donors, then distributing it to area food shelters, Don't Forget to Feed Me offers an alternative to surrendering or abandoning a beloved pet because of difficult financial times. We're proud to have Don't Forget to Feed Me, a 501(c)3 charity, as one of our deserving Movers for Mutts® beneficiaries!
