Movers for Moms®

The 2021 Movers for Moms® campaign is in full swing!

Each year, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® locations all across the country participate in this very special campaign. For the month leading up to Mother's Day, we place donation boxes at local partnering businesses and collect essential care items, which we then deliver in our moving trucks to a local women's shelter right before Mother’s Day.

We have been actively working with our recipient shelter, Milwaukee Women’s Center, a division of Community Advocates, since 2012. In 2019, together with the generous Milwaukee community, we delivered more than 5,900 items to women in need! This year with domestic violence on the rise during COVID-19, the opportunity to help is greater than ever before. We are humbled to help make life just a little easier for women who find themselves in a shelter on Mother’s Day. 

CONTACT-FREE DONATIONS

This year, in addition to physical donation sites, this year we are also highlighting Amazon Wish lists and monetary donation links for those who prefer a contact-free way to get involved.

Local Partners

Feeding the Hungry with B93.3

The holidays are that special time of year when we give thanks for what we have and give to those who don't have much. In December 2016, we were proud to be a sponsor of "B93.3's Feeding the Hungry" as we teamed up with local companies and Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin to provide holiday meals to families that are less fortunate. We look forward to being involved in the community again next year.

GE Community Service Day

Since 2014, we have collaborated with GE Healthcare for their annual community service project in which approximately 2,500 GE employees spent one day improving Milwaukee and Waukesha public schools.  In preparation for the beginning of the school year, schools are painted, landscaped, cleaned, and other projects are performed as necessary. At TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Milwaukee, we volunteer our time and our trucks to deliver tools and equipment to each of the schools. We believe in their mission, and are honored to be a part of this annual tradition of giving back to the community!

Stuff A Truck - Toys for Tots

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK hosted a statewide Stuff-A-Truck event on December 2, 2017, to collect new, unwrapped toys to benefit the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots® throughout Wisconsin.

The toy drive, in partnership with Toys “R” Us®, aimed to collect new toys for families in need during the holiday. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK had a truck parked on-site and staff were on hand at these participating Toys “R” Us® locations on Saturday, Dec. 2. The public came out to locations all over Wisconsin.

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK then delivered the donated toys to their local  U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots® coordinator to benefit children in each local community. It was a huge success and can't wait to see what happens in 2018!

Teddy Bear Posse

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Milwaukee joined forces with FM102.1, B93.3, Milwaukee’s True Oldies Station, and other area sponsors to present the Teddy Bear Posse in 2016. With the support of the local community, we collectively, with all the sponsors, were able to donate over 2600 new teddy bears and stuffed animals that were distributed to area police and fire departments to comfort small children involved in traumatic situations.

We thank everyone who participated for making this event a huge success! 

Wisconsin Breast Cancer Coalition "Rare Chair Affair"

In 2014, we donated our services to the Wisconsin Breast Cancer Coalition’s event, the “Rare Chair Affair,” to transport much needed items from location to location. Each year, they invite 15 to 20 breast cancer survivors to participate in workshops throughout the summer to paint and decorate chairs for this event’s live auction.

Local TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Franchise Group Wraps Successful Hiring Season

Celebrates by donating books to local elementary school

MILWAUKEE, Wis. (Sept. 29, 2021) – During Career Move Month in April, Lightner Management Group, a local Southeast and Southwest Wisconsin-based franchise group, received nearly 700 applications and hired 34 new team members in all fields, including movers, drivers, and move consultants. For each hire made, its TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Milwaukee location pledged to donate five copies of “When Grandma Gives You a Lemon Tree,” by Jamie L.B. Deenihan, to Lincoln Elementary School, located in Wauwatosa.

In conjunction with the gift, a Read Aloud event, hosted by TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, will be held in an outdoor classroom next to the playground. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Recruiting & Retention Manager Nina Nevins, a BFA in acting, will theatrically bring the book to life for a young audience of 1st or 2nd graders. The event will include photo opportunities and a Facebook live streaming event.

The TWO MEN AND A TRUCK book selection pays homage to THE GRANDMA RULE®, a TWO MEN AND A TRUCK corporate value: “To treat everyone the way you would want your grandma to be treated.” It also celebrates the pleasures of patience, hard work, nature, community, and putting down electronic devices for just a while.

“We are thrilled to celebrate our successful recruitment season with the students at Lincoln Elementary School,” said Tim Lightner, owner of Lightner Management Group, a TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Wisconsin-based franchise. “As a parent myself, I know there’s no better way to give back to a community than to invest in its young people.”  

Through a new partnership with First Book, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK donated 2,500 books nationwide to local organizations that help children gain access to books and develop their reading skills. First Book has provided equal access to quality education for kids in need since 1992.
