2016 TOY MOUNTAIN CAMPAIGN
2016 Toy Mountain Campaign
Do you remember that feeling when you spot your gift under the tree on Christmas morning?
At TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Ottawa we think that every child should be able to experience this joy.
We are so excited to be a Toy Mountain Sponsor as the official moving company, picking up toys around our city.
Toy Mountain 2016 was powered by TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® as we travelled around to the various drop off areas in Ottawa to collect your generous toy donations. Together we brought the joy of Christmas to approximately 20,000 children in our city. Thank you for working with us to bring Toy Mountain to new heights.

MIKEY DONATION:THE BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB OF OTTAWA
The Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa (BGCO)has been a part of our community since 1923. BGCO reaches 4,500 children and youth each year through after-school, weekend and summer programs. These valuable programs keep kids safe, improve academic achievement and build self-esteem.
At TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® we were happy to make a small contribution to aid in the success of these programs. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® made a donation of a MIKEY defibrillator to be readily available at the Police Youth Centre located at 1463 Prince of Wales Dr. in Ottawa.
MIKEY ON BOARD
The Mikey On Board Program is an initiative that places portable MIKEY defibrillators on vehicles that travel around the city, including TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® moving trucks. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®Canada launched the Mikey On Board program in 2012 and we are proud to be a part of an organization that carries a second chance for people who may be affected by sudden cardiac arrest. MIKEY has saved over 30 lives and continues to train and equip more people each year.
SERVING OUR CAPITAL CITY
April and May were Mikey months for TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Ottawa. In appreciation for every move booked with us we have made a donation on behalf of the Mikey Network towards The Walk Of Life. Together we have raised $1085.00 for a cause that is dear to our hearts.
WHAT IS A MIKEY?
A Mikey is an Automated External Defibrillator (AED). A defibrillator is often hard to spell and so we call them MIKEYs. Mikey is a portable AED. If the Mikey detects life-threatening heart rhythms it responds with an electric shock to restore a normal heart rhythm. You don’t have to be a medical professional to use a Mikey and potentially save a life.
