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!

B2i understands how the cycle of poverty happens and strives to educate individuals and families on how to avoid falling back into the intergenerational cycle. They offer a variety of services ranging from financial literacy to emergency shelter.
DRESS FOR SUCCESS

Congresswoman Norton's Annual Job Fair
We want to thank Congresswoman Norton for allowing us to participate in her annual job fair! At Congresswoman Norton's Annual Job Fair, we were able to go to Washington D.C. and meet some great people who were interested in a career with TWO MEN AND A TRUCK. We are always looking for great, motivated individuals to join our team!
Ballyshaner's St. Patrick's Day Parade
We are glad to have participated in the annual Ballyshaner's St. Patrick's Day parade! In the spirit of St. Patrick's Day, we decorated the truck with fun beards, hats, and a pot'o'gold. Not only did we make a contribution to The Ballyshaners Inc, but we also had a great time being apart of the celebration. Can't wait until next year!
George Washington Parkway Classic
We had the great opportunity to participate in the annual George Washington Parkway Classic! This family friendly event included a 5k,10 mile, and activities for children. Our TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® team was able to offer some of our largest trucks to safely move runners and walkers items from the beautiful Mount Vernon to the end of the race in Old Towne Alexandria. We want to congratulate everyone that finished the races, and we definitely will see you next year!
