Moving Our Community Forward
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Campaigns
Movers for Moms®
Can you help us help moms in need?
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 2018, we collected more than 365,000 items nationwide, and more than 1 million items since the program began. This year, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Arlington is collecting essential items for Safe Haven of Tarrant County, with shelter locations right here in Arlington and Fort Worth. We'll be delivering the donations to them in time for Mother's Day.
Items we're collecting for SafeHaven:
- shampoo, conditioner, body wash
- toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant
- feminine hygiene products
- diapers, new baby bottles, new pacifiers
- powdered laundry detergent
You can drop off donations at our Arlington franchise or one of our collection partners:

No need to do anything else other than help spread the word to employees and customers. We'll even pick up the boxes once they've filled up! For more information, and to be added to our list of partners, please contact Jen Merkel.
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!
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.
