Serving Our Markham and Pickering Communities
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Campaigns
THE MIKEY NETWORK - MIKEY ON BOARD
The Mikey Network is a local Canadian charity that places Public Access Defibrillators, which they call MIKEYs, with children and families in need, and in as many public places as possible. We are proud to participate in their Mikey On Board program.
Through this program, all TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Markham & Pickering moving trucks are equipped with a MIKEY portable defibrillator and all TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Markham & Pickering movers, drivers, and staff, have been trained to use a MIKEY AED. We hope our MIKEYs never have to be used, but because our moving trucks are travelling throughout our communities every day, we are glad to have these life-saving devices moving throughout the community with them.
Movers For Meals - Thanksgiving Food Drive
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Markham & Pickering is proud to have participated in a Thanksgiving Food Drive held in partnership with Metro Grocery with donations going to help feed those in need.
THE BEYOUTIFUL PROJECT
The BeYoutiful Project is a community outreach initiative created to recognize and assist women who are disadvantaged by social or economic circumstances.
The women are treated to a once in a lifetime experience. Guests, with the help of stylists, have the opportunity to select outfits from complimentary clothing, shoes and accessories, be pampered with mini makeovers and indulge in sweet treats during an afternoon tea. The guests also hear from inspiring women who have persevered despite their tougher circumstances.
The goal of this project is not only to provide a much needed day of pampering but to give these women a chance to feel inspired, uplifted, hopeful and most of all BeYoutiful!
Our movers and drivers generously donate their time to help transport items for their yearly charitable event.
At TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Markham & Pickering, we strive to keep our environment clean because we don’t just serve the community, we are also members of it. Our recycling program helps us to stay true to our green goals. With our friends from Trillium Recycling, we are able to recycle all of our moving supplies used during the move. We are very proud to be able to say that 100% of our cardboard, packing paper, stretch wrap, bubble wrap and mattress bags are recycled in an effort to reduce our overall footprint.
SHINE THROUGH THE RAIN FOUNDATION
Shine Through the Rain Foundation's goal is to help those who are affected by life-threatening illnesses. Whether it's through services or funds, the organization provides guidance, support, and financial aid to those in need. Recently they hosted a Candy Dash event at the Abilities Centre in Whitby, ON.
The event featured a 5km walk and a 2km Toddlertrot! TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Markham & Pickering also recently assisted them with delivering supplies to their Teddy Bear Run.
