Moving Our Community Forward
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Campaigns
Movers for Moms®
Movers for Moms® was started 13 years ago by TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® International as a way to help women in shelter on a local level. Franchises throughout the country participate in this collection drive each spring, donating hundreds of thousands of items to shelters each year. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak and social distancing practices, we at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Arlington have decided to replace our traditional collection drive with an online fundraiser through our Facebook page.
According to SafeHaven of Tarrant County, our Movers for Moms® beneficiary, donations have significantly decreased since the outbreak began. With shelter in place orders throughout the area, calls for domestic violence have surged and the need for SafeHaven's services have seen a large increase. Now, more than ever, victims of domestic abuse are in need of their help.
You can donate to our online fundraiser for SafeHaven now through May 1st at our Facebook page. Help us help local moms in shelter throughout the Fort Worth and Arlington area.
If you own or work at a business and would like to host a collection box, please contact Jen Merkel, Marketing Manager.
Movers for Mutts®
In the Fall of 2019, we organized Movers for Mutts®, a supply drive supporting two Fort Worth animal charities: Animal Hope and Don't Forget to Feed Me. Over 30 community partners throughout Mansfield, Arlington, and Fort Worth helped us to collect nearly 400 items, including 412.5 lbs. of pet food! We are blown away by the generosity of the community and look forward to doing the drive again next year. If your business would consider helping us with our 2020 Movers for Mutts® drive, contact Jen Merkel, Marketing Manager.
Animal Hope rescues pets from Fort Worth area shelters, then provides them with the rehabilitation and medical assistance they may need. Once ready, they work to find the pet's forever home. Animal Hope Pet Adoptions is a 501(c)3 charity and one of our Movers for Mutts® charity partners.
CONVOY OF HOPE
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK proudly partners with Convoy of Hope, a charity organization that provides relief to those experiencing losses due to natural disasters. Most recently, with the help of TWO MEN AND A TRUCK and other transportation partners, Convoy of Hope was able to get much-needed food and supplies to residents in The Bahamas experiencing emergencies due to Hurricane Dorian. Besides donating labor and services, ten cents of every move completed by TWO MEN AND A TRUCK system-wide is donated to Convoy of Hope to help with their efforts.
DFW Toys for Tots
At TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Arlington, we are proud of our 15+ year partnership with DFW Toys for Tots! In December of each year, we help by transporting donated toys from various collection events throughout the Fort Worth area to the Toys for Tots warehouse in Dallas. In 2019, we helped out at events in Sundance Square, Mansfield, Southlake, and Lockheed Martin's Fort Worth facility. Our commitment to donating hundreds of hours of labor, services, and equipment is something we look forward to each holiday season.
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!
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.
