Movers For Moms

Description:

 MOVERS FOR MOMS 

Program Overview
What is it? 
 TWO MEN AND A TRUCK locations across the country are collecting donations for local 
women’s and family shelters for delivery on Mother’s Day.
 The purpose of the program is to recognize all moms this Mother’s Day by arranging delivery 
of small gifts for women who may not be expecting anything this year. 
 2012 marks the fifth year for the Movers for Moms® program. In 2011, more than 65,000 
items were collected for shelters in 14 states. 
 The donations we encourage include any/all creature comforts items: nice soaps, hair styling 
products, shampoos and conditioners, pillows, blankets, slippers, robes, etc.  In most cases, 
shelters’ will provide a list of specific needs.
 This year, we’re hoping to once again partner with schools, churches and other community 
organizations (e.g., Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, etc.) to facilitate classroom collections. 
 
When does it happen? 
 Partnering organizations can begin collecting at any time, but the collection typically runs from 
late March through the Friday before Mother’s Day—Friday, May 11, 2012. 
 TWO MEN AND A TRUCK will pick up and deliver the collected items to partnering women’s 
shelters on or before Mother’s Day—-Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 13, 2012.
 
Why a collection for Moms?
 TWO MEN AND A TRUCK has women in key leadership across the company, and some of 
our most successful franchisees are women, so the idea for Movers for Moms came to us 
naturally.
