Two Men and a Truck helps fight domestic violence


Published:

 

Two Men and a Truck locations across the United States will collect donations for distribution to local women’s and family shelters for delivery on Mother’s Day through its Movers for Moms program.

Mother’s Day should be a joyous occasion for mothers and their families. Unfortunately for some women, that’s not always the case.

This is the 11th year for the Two Men and a Truck Movers for Moms program and the eighth year that Brevard County’s franchise has participated in the program. The women at Serene Harbor, a domestic violence shelter, will be the beneficiaries of the local program.

For 26 years, Serene Harbor has provided safe and confidential services such as a confidential hotline, safety planning, emergency shelter, legal advocacy, counseling and outreach to more than 27,000 women, children and their pets in Brevard County.

No gift is considered too small as Serene Harbor needs nice soaps, hair conditioners, soft pillows, slippers, shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste, floss and diapers, school supplies, canned fruits, condiments, peanut butter, pasta, jelly, kids’ snacks and canned vegetables.

For information or to request a complete wish list, call Two Men and a Truck at 321-242-7742. Donations also can be dropped off at Two Men and a Truck at 325 Stan Drive in Melbourne from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 8 a.m. to noon each Saturday.

Donations can be dropped off at The Beach Radio Station at 380 North Wickham Road, Suite 1 in Melbourne. Donations will be collected until a few days before Mother’s Day on May 13.

Local businesses also are welcome to serve as additional collection sites. Call 321-242-7742 to volunteer.
