Stuff A Truck -  Toys for Tots

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK is hosting 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®, aims to collect new toys for families in need this holiday. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK will park a truck and have staff on hand at these participating Toys “R” Us® locations from 11 am to 4 pm Saturday, Dec. 2. The public is invited to donate at these Toys “R” Us® locations:

3900 South 27th Street, Milwaukee
4411 W. Wisconsin Avenue, Appleton
355 South Moorland Road, Brookfield
2723 Milton Avenue, Janesville
7309 West Towne Way, Madison 
2433 S. Green Bay Road, Racine
1640 West Mason Street, Green Bay

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK has a goal of stuffing each moving truck full before the day’s end. Donations will then be delivered to the area U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots® coordinator to benefit children in each local community.

Movers for Moms®

Since 2012, we have been participating in the Movers for Moms® national campaign, collecting donations for those in local women’s and family shelters, delivering them on Mother’s Day. We have partnered with the Milwaukee Women’s Center since 2012, and were excited to be partnered with some amazing organizations again this year!  We all know someone in need, and there is no better time than the present to make a change in a woman's life!  Thanks to your support and generousity, we were able to collect 3,734 items to present to women and children living in shelters. THANK YOU for your SUPPORT! Let's make 2018 our biggest yet - stay tuned in early 2018 for more information,


  

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

In 2014, we collaborated with GE Healthcare for their 20th 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 volunteered our time and two of our trucks to deliver tools and equipment to each of the schools.

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.

Teddy Bear Posse

Teddy Bear Posse Two Men and a Truck Milwaukee

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! Mark your calendars for September 2017 when we join in this great cause again. Let's double our numbers in 2017!
