Grandville Jenison Chamber Office Serves as Donation Location
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® locations across the country collect donations for women every spring and deliver them to local women’s and family shelters on or before Mother’s Day. Franchises partner with local shelters, schools, and other community organizations to collect goods that will make Mother’s Day special for moms living in shelters. This annual campaign is called Movers for Moms®.
HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS
As part of its Movers for Moms® program, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK locations nationally partner with local businesses and organizations to collect essential care items for women staying in local domestic abuse or homeless shelters. Once donations are collected, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK will pick up and deliver the items to partnering shelters around Mother’s Day.
Donations are determined by individual shelters, but can include: nice soaps, hair styling products, shampoos and conditioners, pillows, blankets, slippers, and other basic clothing items.
INVESTING IN MOMS EVERYWHERE
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK has women in key leadership roles across the country — some of the most successful franchisees are mothers. Movers for Moms® is a way for TWO MEN AND A TRUCK to appreciate the efforts of mothers everywhere, despite their current circumstances.
It was a record-breaking year in 2017 with more than 295,000 items collected and donated to shelters across the country! This truly helps moms in need get back on their feet and feel extra special on a day they may have otherwise been forgotten.
- Movers for Moms® was a national program in 42 states; all franchise locations participated, supporting hundreds of shelters across the U.S.
