TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Kicks Off
Movers for Moms® Drive to Help Mothers in Need This Mother’s Day
Community-Supported Program Aids Moms in Crisis
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Bluffton & Savannah, 4/4/23 —Though Mother’s Day is intended to be a joyous occasion for women across the country, thousands of moms will be overlooked on this special holiday because they are forced to live in shelters as a result of domestic abuse or homelessness.
To ensure moms in crisis receive the love and appreciation they deserve this Mother’s Day, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Bluffton and Savannah are hosting their annual Movers for Moms® collection drive to provide critical gifts to local women staying in community shelters this spring.
Heartbreaking statistics from the Domestic Violence Resource Center state that one in every four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime, and an estimated 1.3 million women are victims of physical assault by an intimate partner each year. According to a national study from the New York State Office for the Prevention of Domestic Violence, approximately 25 percent of homeless women are homeless because of violence in the home.
This year, the Bluffton and Savannah moving companies are working with local businesses/organizations to collect essential care and comfort items for women at Hopeful Horizons (Beaufort, Colleton, Hampton, Jasper and Allendale counties) and SAFE Shelter (Savannah)
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Bluffton and Savannah will be collecting donations from 3/29 to 5/8. For those who wish to donate, you may drop off items at the following locations during that time:
