Give back to the community. This is one of TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®’s Core Values, and we don’t take it lightly. We work with dozens of local community groups each year to add to the quality of life for the citizens in the DC area. Whether it’s providing discounted or free moving services, box donations, or small sponsorships, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® has earned the reputation of being “The movers who care”.
Special Olympics Virginia
We have partnered with Savers FunDrive and Special Olympics Virginia (SOVA) to raise donations to send a special athlete to the 2018 Special Olympics. With the help of Meridian at Carlyle and Meridian at Braddock Station, we were able to collect over 30 boxes of donations! These donations will be turned into funds to help send the athlete to the Special Olympics, where they will receive free medical attention and to compete in the games!
Movers for Moms®
Each spring, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® franchises across the country coordinate large collection drive to support women in need. Through our Movers for Moms® campaign we engage with local businesses and organizations to collect personal items for shelters that serve women and their families. In 2017, more than 500,000 items were presented to hundreds of shelters, just in time for Mother’s Day. 2018 marked our 10 year anniversary for Movers For Moms, and we partnered with Avalon Clarendon, Zoso Flats, Meridian At Ballston Commons, Meridian at Braddock Station, and Meridian At Eisenhower Station to donate over 1,200 donations to the families at Bridges to Independence and Facets!

GEORGE WASHINGTON PARKWAY CLASSIC 2019
This year was our 6th annual participation in the George Washington Parkway Classic! This event included a 5k, 10 Miler, and kids race option, and TWO MEN AND A TRUCK was able to offer some of our best trucks for the 6,000 – 7,000 participants. Our trucks took on the role of bag check-in for the event, and carefully moved the runner’s personal belongings from the beginning of the race at Mount Vernon, to the end in Old Towne Alexandria. One of our General Managers, Dan Conlin, also joined in and ran in the race! We were happy to be a part of this year’s event and will be looking forward to participating again next year!
REAL ESTATE TODAY INTERVIEW WITH ZACH KILDALL 2019
Interviewed by Stephen Gasque from the Real Estate Today Radio, our general manager, Zach Kildall, gave tips on the most efficient, economical, and timely ways to move from one house to another. “It is best to schedule out the move as far as you can from when you know you’ll be moving…and also do NOT move on closing day,” said Kildall. “Make sure to pack a ‘Day of Move box’ to have all the essentials you will need with you right after your move, stated Kildall as another wise tip.” Click the link to hear the whole radio interview!
