OKLAHOMA CITY – Two Men and a Truck OKC have selected The Salvation Army Central Oklahoma’s emergency shelter to benefit from this year’s Movers for Moms campaign.
“This is our 7th year participating in the program,” said Adam Mecke, general manager, Two Men and a Truck OKC. “We wanted to find a way to support those women who find themselves in an emergency shelter on Mother’s Day. What better way to celebrate them than to provide them with a collection of comfort and essential items to brighten their day.”
Two Men and a Truck have locations across the United States and all will be collecting donations for distribution to local women’s and family shelters for delivery on Mother’s Day. Last year, the program collected more than 295,000 essential care items for women in hundreds of shelters across the nation. This year, the national goal is 310,000 items.
“We are extremely grateful to have partners that want to step in and bless the women who are residing in our emergency shelter,” said Major Thomas McWilliams, area commander, The Salvation Army Central Oklahoma. “Many who find themselves in need of shelter have nothing but the clothes on their back. This Mother’s Day will be a very special day for our women’s and family shelters and one that will show how much each is loved and cared for.”
Two Men and a Truck OKC are partnering with Legacy Cleaners locations in Edmond and Oklahoma City, as well as Venturis Clinic. Each location will have a drop off box for anyone wishing to donate to the Movers for Moms program.
