Items to benefit women in shelter in Dane and Rock Counties
 
Madison, Wis. - Each year, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® hosts its annual Movers for Moms® donation drive as a way of honoring all moms. Essential care items like toothpaste, diapers and toiletries are collected and donated to moms who are in shelter at Mother’s Day.
 
In 2016, more than 83 businesses across Dane and Rock County generously acted as donation locations, collecting 20,000 items to benefit moms in shelter. The 2017 drive will run from April 5 through May 12, with collection of boxes with donations the Wednesday before Mother’s Day. Donations are collected and will be delivered to YWCA Madison and YWCA of Rock County the Friday before Mother’s Day.
 
To make this year’s drive even more successful, the company is seeking donation locations in the community. TWO MEN AND A TRUCKâ employees deliver branded boxes shortly before the drive begins plus posters and window clings, and takes care of all campaign promotion. If you are interested in becoming a donation location, please contact Michael Fiez at Michael.Fiez@twomen.com. Participating businesses receive inclusion in all PR and promotion, and opportunities for media interviews.
 
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® franchises across the country will all take part in the campaign because so many women struggle with domestic violence. According to information from The National Domestic Abuse Hotline, one in four women will experience domestic violence during her lifetime. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® is proud to support women and families experiencing crisis, and want to make this Mother’s Day rewarding for every Mom. You can help make a difference in the lives of countless women who are reclaiming their lives, and make their Mother’s Day special once again.
