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 UnionState Farm Insurance - Shelley Hickman Agency,  David Insurance, Alaskan Fireplace, Community State Bank, Educators Credit UnionBelle City Veterinary Hospital, Storage Master in Franksville, and Lakeview Pharmacy of Racine. We couldn't have had such a successful drive without your support.

This year's 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:

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 Mutts

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® has held a donation drive in the fall to benefit the community. 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. Thed 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:

Stuff-A-Truck

We are planning our very first Stuff-A-Truck toy drive event this fall in partnership with Toys "R" Us to benefit the official US Marine Corps Toys for Tots. We'll be collecting new, unwrapped toys for children of all ages on December 2 at the Toys R Us store in Racine from 11 am-4 pm. These toys will be distributed to local children through several area agencies that allow parents or guardians to select toys for children in need all the way up until Christmas. 

Please follow us on social media for more details and consider dropping off a new toy to make the holidays special for a needy child. We are collaborating with TWO MEN AND A TRUCK locations across the statewide on this event to collect gifts that make this holiday special for area children. Items collected in the Racine drive will be given to kids in the Racine, Kenosha and Walworth County area. 


 

All the Wisconsin franchises will be participating in this special event on Dec. 2, so you may also drop toys at Toys "R" Us locaitons in Brookfield, Janesville, Milwaukee, Madison, Appleton and Green Bay!
