Giving back to the community has been part of TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®’s culture since the very beginning — after profiting her first $1,000, company Founder Mary Ellen Sheets gave $100 to 10 different local charities.
Over the course of 30 years, the opportunity to give back has grown into more than just a company core value, it’s a frame of mind team members live by, day in and day out. The great thing about TWO MEN AND A TRUCK is each and every person has a chance to make a difference in their community. From local charity moves to the annual donation drives to benefit those in need within our communities, opportunities to give back are plentiful.
Since 2009, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK franchises across the country have donated more than 137,000 hours of service to their communities. This means our franchises are volunteering at various community events which benefit organizations such as Toys for Tots, United Way, Habitat for Humanity, and so many more. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK also has five of its own charity programs franchises that are run annually — Movers for Moms®, Movers for Military, Movers for Meals®, Movers for Mutts®, and Truckload of Warmth. These programs, in conjunction with the community’s support and donations, help to support mothers in domestic abuse or homeless shelters, military veterans, food pantries, and animal shelters by providing items they need most.
A leader in community service
In 2018 alone, franchises across the country donated more than $3 million worth of moving services to non-profits in need. We also support the organization, Convoy of Hope, to support their mission of bringing hope to those who are impoverished, hungry, and hurting. Ten cents of every move is donated to this cause, and in 2019, a check was presented to the organization for more than $53,000 from 2018’s move totals.
Franchise teams not only have the unique opportunity to move our customers’ lives forward every day, but have a huge hand in supporting their communities through various volunteer efforts.
