Getting involved in our Milwaukee 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!
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
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!
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Campaigns
Movers for Moms
We have been actively participating in the Movers for Moms® national campaign since 2012, 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 generosity in 2017, we were able to collect 3,734 items to present to women and children living in shelters. THANK YOU for your SUPPORT!
The 2018 Movers for Moms® drive is now underway, and we need YOUR help! Some of the items in need are: pillows, comforters, and blankets, baby diapers, combs/brushes, deodorant, shampoo & conditioner, scented lotion, body wash, toothbrushes/toothpaste and floss. The shelter asks that items be in new/unwrapped condition. To find a donation site closest to you, click below. Let's make 2018 our best year yet!!
