We Care About Our Community
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Norfolk proudly donate our time and resources to our local community, and continuously stay involved with local non-profit charities. A portion from our moves support a different local charity each quarter of the year.
Movers for Moms®
The Movers for Moms® program was created to provide moms and women in need throughout the community with daily essential items in hopes of brightening their day and their spirits! These items include: soap, toothbrushes, hair styling products, shampoo and conditioner, hygiene products, socks and underwear, and baby diapers.
In 2016 TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Norfolk and Cirlce in the Bridge partnered up with local businesses and The King's Daughters to collect donations of essential care items for Mothers in need that have unexpected stays with their children in the hospital at CHKD. We collected nearly 7,000 items in our first year participating in this amazing campaign.
In 2017 TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Norfolk and Barret Haven Inc. partnered up with local businesses to collect donations of
essential care items, cleaning products, and bedding for Mothers in need who were staying in their woman's shelter.
Partnerships and Organizations
HOPE HOUSE FOUNDATION
Hope House Foundation provides supported living services to adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities exclusively in their own homes or in local apartment communities they own; regardless of how complex their disabilities may be. We continuously partner with Hope House Foundation on fundraising events they hold throughout the year, donating our trucks, manpower, and time to assist with the set up and tear down of these events. We hosted a “Fill the Truck for Hope House” campaign where we picked up large unwanted items free of charge from local residents to be donated to the Hope House Thrift Store during the months of September through November 2015. We concluded the campaign at Chelsea West Fest where our truck was set up to collect donations brought to the festival to help benefit the thrift store and Hope House Foundation. We most recently helped with the set up of Shamrockin' in Ghent that was held in March of 2017.
