Community Service

Since 2009, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® locations across North America have donated more than 75,000 hours of service to their communities. In 2014 alone, franchises donated more than $2,400,000 worth of moving services. With numbers like that, chances are good there is a truck out there right now adding to this impressive number.

The TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® system holds a long tradition of giving back to the communities where our employees live and work. Giving back to the community has been a vital part of the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® system long before it was formalized as a core value. After our founder Mary Ellen Sheets’ first year in business, she donated her profits to 10 different charities. It is this spirit that gives meaning to the company’s motto: “Movers Who Care®.”

Strengthening our communities by building partnerships

Our locations also donate countless hours to a variety of charities in their local communities including women's shelters, food banks, toy drives, Habitat for Humanity, and TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®’s own community support partnership with The Mikey Network — Mikey On Board.

As part of the Mikey On Board program, all TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Canada moving trucks are equipped with a MIKEY defibrillator and TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Canadian franchisees, their drivers, and staff, have been trained to use a MIKEY.

Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is the leading killer of Canadians. Over 10% of occurrences happen in public and victims who are not revived within 3-5 minutes usually die. Having MIKEYs on TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® vehicles increases the chances of making one accessible when the unexpected happens.

We also contribute to The Mikey Network, our charity of choice, by donating 10 cents from every move to the cause of promoting heart-healthy lifestyles and placing Public Access Defibrillators in as many public spaces as possible.
