Every year in the spring, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® locations all across the country host an annual donation drive designed to give back to mothers and women in need-- right here in our community by collecting donations of essential care items most needed by our local shelter partners in honor of Mother's Day. This program is called Movers for Moms®! We collect these donations from customers, and by partnering with local businesses who generously host collection boxes. This year, our shelter partner receiving the donations we collect is the Samaritan House of Virginia Beach.
Items on their wish list this year are:
New Bed Pillows
New Full/Twin Sheet Sets & Comforters (No Rolled Fleece Blankets Please)
Donations may be dropped off at our office at 543 Central Drive Set 220 Virginia Beach, VA 23454 or at one of our many donation collection sites including:
Cosmopolitan Residences at Town Center
Midtown Apartments at Town Center
We've also put together an Amazon Wish list this year for those who would like to donate but are unable to do so in person! All donations purchased from our Amazon wish list will be shipped to our office and delivered to Samaritan House the Friday prior to Mother's Day. Thank you to all of our collection partner sites for helping in our pursuits to give back to our community!
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Virginia Beach is partnering with several businesses in the community to help animals in need.

Formed by 17-year-old Mariah Smith in 2011, Blankets for the Homeless has distributed more than 110,000 blankets and lunches to people in need all over Virginia Beach. Mariah has been featured in Costal Virginia Magazine, spoken for numerous schools, businesses, and organizations, and has encouraged thousands of people to help donate clothes and feed the homeless.
Samaritan House has provided emergency housing, transitional housing, and community outreach to victims of domestic violence and homelessness since 1984. They have more than 11 emergency shelter houses and 27 affordable apartment units. Samaritan House is Virginia's largest emergency housing provider.
Their cause is to help eliminate hunger in Hampton Roads and surrounding communities. The Southeastern Food Bank collect canned, boxed, fresh, and frozen foods donated by restaurants, supermarkets, food distributors, farmers, wholesalers, and through food and fund drives. They’ve been around since 1981, and have distributed more than 18 million pounds of food, equating to 15 million meals to the community.
A celebration of survivors, Making Strides helps empower and express hope to those suffering or having suffered from breast cancer. The walks are the largest network of breast cancer awareness events in the nation, uniting nearly 300 communities with a shared determination to finish the fight.
