TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Campaigns
Movers for Military
Another TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® corporate campaign is Movers for Military that works to assist homeless veterans in the greater Racine area by collecting essential items. In 2014, we delivered nearly 1,900 items to the Veterans Assistance Program in the second year of this community-based campaign. We partnered with schools across Racine, including Racine Kindercare, Gifford Elementary, Mitchell Elementary, and Jerstad-Agerholm Elementary to collect items such as food, clothing, soap, and toiletries, for donation to Veterans Assistance Foundation in Union Grove, an organization providing critical assistance to veterans.
Movers for Moms®
Each year, we are happy to participate in a corporate campaign called Movers for Moms®, partnering with local shelters, schools, and other community organizations to collect donations for women every spring and delivering them to the Women’s Resource Center of Racine shortly before Mother’s Day.
The 2017 Movers for Moms® drive ran from April 10 through May 12 and was a success! From 50 donation sites across Racine, Kenosha and Walworth Counties, we collected 4,183 essential care items (plus cash!) for our friends at the Women’s Resource Center of Racine to benefit moms in need this Mother’s Day. Special thanks to all our community partners for making this campaign possible!
Just a few of the local donation sites from this long list include North Shore Bank, Racine Municipal Employees Credit Union, State Farm Insurance - Shelley Hickman Agency, David Insurance, Alaskan Fireplace, Community State Bank, Educators Credit Union, Belle City Veterinary Hospital, Storage Master in Franksville, and Lakeview Pharmacy of Racine. We couldn't have had such a successful drive without your support.
The 2017 drive coincided with drives all across the greater Milwaukee area! We partnered with our Waukesha and Milwaukee franchises, which serve Sheboygan, Washington, Ozaukee, Milwaukee, Waukesha, and Jefferson counties. These are in addition to the three we serve, Walworth, Racine and Kenosha. That means boxes were found all across Southeastern Wisconsin during April.
We were very proud to get some local media coverage about the drive, helping build awareness and support:
Most importantly we know these items were very much appreciated by the Women's Resource Center. Lyn Hildebrand, Executive Director of The Women’s Resource Center, said this:
"We were so pleased to receive the many boxes of ‘treasures’ that were donated by the community during the Movers for Moms Campaign. The boxes were delivered on my first day of work at the center, What a wonderful way to begin my career with the agency - being gifted boxes and boxes of much-needed items for our guests. Bedding, towels, personal care products – you name it we unpacked it. With these donations we were able to provide our guests with many luxury items which they were forced to leave behind when they fled their abusers, things we take for granted – blow dryers, full-size body spray, body wash & body lotion, fresh clean towels, socks, etc. The donations have enabled us to provide welcome packets of personal care products to each guest as well as parting packages to help them transition into their new residence once they have completed their stay with us. So, I say thank you so very much to each person who made a contribution, and to TWO MEN AND A TRUCK for your efforts in ensuring that these donations were delivered with care to us, and the other agencies who so desperately need the ‘treasures’!"
The 2018 drive will take place April 9 through May 9. If you'd like to be a donation site this year please call Sheri Rice or email email@example.com.
Movers for Mutts
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® held a donation drive in the fall to benefit the community and in 2016, we held our first “Movers for Mutts” drive, in which we placed donation boxes around the community and collected items to benefits dogs in need. The 2016 campaign benefited Woof Gang dog rescue, an entirely volunteer-run organization that works to rehome dogs. On October 21, we were delighted to deliver well over 300 bags of dog food and treats, five dog bowls, toys, leashes, collars, six bags of puppy pee pads, a case of canned dog food, gas cards, computer paper and over 15 bottles of dog shampoo - all of which were put to immediate use.
Special thanks to the donation sites across Racine, Kenosha and Walworth Counties who generously supported this campaign:
Thank you to everyone who made our very first Stuff-A-Truck toy drive a success. On December 2, we collected more than 300 toys at the Racine Toys R Us store which went directly to the official US Marine Corps Toys for Tots. Toys for Tots distributes new, unwrapped toys for children of all ages.
All the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Wisconsin franchises participated in this special event on Dec. 2, and toys were collected at Toys "R" Us locations in Brookfield, Janesville, Milwaukee, Madison, Appleton and Green Bay the same day. All told, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK collected almost 2,500 toys to give to children right here in Wisconsin.
