Giving Back to Our Community

Giving back to the Niagara community is very important to our team. The community gave us our home and our employees, so we love the opportunity to give back to St Catharines, Niagara Falls, Niagara-on-the-Lake, Grimsby, Beamsville, Jordan Station, Vineland and surrounding areas. 

We have sponsored and supported youth sports organization, food drives with Niagara College, and charities including RedRoof Retreat in Niagara-on-the-Lake and Autism Speaks Canada in St. Catharines.  

 

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Campaigns

MIKEY NETWORK - Mikey On Board

The Mikey Network & Mikey on Board

The Mikey Network works to promote Heart-Health and to place as many AEDs (which they call MIKEYs) as possible in public spaces. We've partnered with The Mikey Network to equip all of our moving trucks and customer service vehicles with MIKEY defibrillators, and all TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® St. Catharines & Niagara employees have been trained to use a MIKEY AED. Now, when you see a TWO MEN AND A TRUCK St. Catharines & Niagara moving truck, it doesn’t just mean someone is moving in or out of the neighbourhood, it means there’s help close by in case of a cardiac emergency.  

Gymnastics Energy was a recipient of one of our Mikey Defibrillators to have on-site at their studio in St. Catharines.

GBF Gift Drive

Holiday Gift Drive

We know that this year has been particularly hard on many families in our community so it's more important than every to support GBF Community Services. In addition to helping families that are food insecure, they assist with housing, health, and provide youth programs. We held a gift drive so families that are struggling financially can still have presents for their kids and experience some joy this holiday season.
