Movers for Moms

  • Written by David B. Clark
Whether it be on your way to the supermarket or walking your dog through the neighborhood, you have likely caught a glimpse of the simple, yet eye-catching logo of two happy stickmen with their arms outstretched sitting in the cab of a truck. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK ® is a very recognizable moving company due to their catchy name, reliable reputation, and world-class attitude concerning community involvement. The company has blossomed into a countrywide affair after its humble beginning as a way two high school brothers could make some extra money. While the company caters to local and long-distance moving for individuals and companies alike, it’s their wonderful program Movers for Moms® that has been bringing communities together every spring for over a decade. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® is partnering with local businesses in Woodinville like Bob’s Heating, Expressions in Eyewear, and Brittany Park and other organizations to collect essential care items for women staying in a local domestic abuse and homeless shelter. Once donations are collected, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® will pick up and deliver the items to the partnered shelter around Mother’s Day. Unbeknownst to the founding brothers Brig and Jon Sorber of Michigan in the ‘80s, their moving company would truck its way into developing such a phenomenal program that by 2017, 42 States and every franchised location would be supporting women’s shelters.
In Washington, we have two convenient collection sites. The first, located right in Woodinville, is located at 19011 Woodinville Snohomish Rd, Woodinville, WA 98072. The other location is just up north in Everett at 607 S.E. Everett Mall Way, Everett, WA 98208. This year, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK ® is partnering with The Sophia Way, a shelter located in Bellevue that has acted as a sanctuary for women afflicted by homelessness that are seeking independence. While donations of clothing and other goods are always useful, The Sofia Way is emphasizing its need for toiletries, such as sanitary wipes, and cleaning supplies. Chair of TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Melanie Bergeron said, “This is a program where communities come together. They put together collection sites for comfort items for women, primarily moms, that are in shelters.” Last year, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® gathered up items from over 800 collection sites nationwide, acquiring more than 295,000 items.
John Phillips, the Marketing Coordinator for TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® here in Washington is extremely enthusiastic about this project. Phillips will be setting up the boxes to the Everett location on March 19 and the Eastside and Seattle March 20. When talking about the delivery of items May 9 and 11 to The Sofia Way, Phillips smiled when he said, “I’ll be on the truck with the driver.”
