Two Men and a Truck gives Thanksgiving meals to families

MADISON – Employees with Two Men and a Truck put aside their boxes of household furnishings to ‘move turkeys’ during their third annual food drive for Thanksgiving.

Local residents united to feed underserved people with more than 60 boxes of food for Thanksgiving meals that Two Men and a Truck workers collected for the Downtown Rescue Mission in Huntsville.

The moving company’s employees placed 300 boxes on doorsteps of homes in the Clift’s Cove neighborhood with an attached wish list of food items, including frozen turkeys, for residents to fill, Taylor Wilkerson said. Wilkerson works as Marketing Director for Two Men and a Truck.

After filling the boxes for a one-week period, Clift’s Cove residents put the filled boxes on their doorsteps for the crew to pick up the food on Nov. 22.

Joe Hollingsworth, Two Men and a Truck franchise owner, values using his resources to help community residents. “These donations fed families who cannot provide for themselves this Thanksgiving. It was an honor to facilitate a community effort that will directly impact our neighbors,” Hollingsworth said.

The 2019 donations by Clift’s Cove residents broke the campaign’s record of previous collection of 50 boxes.

Two Men and a Truck began its Thanksgiving food drive with the drop-off and pick-up service in hopes to help encourage local individuals to give during the time of Thanksgiving to neighbors in need.

The moving company strives to give back to Madison County residents year-round, especially during the holiday season. A portion of all of Two Men and a Truck’s proceeds go directly to local charities, such as Kids to Love, Veterans of North Alabama Services Assistance Program Inc., Toys for Tots and others.

In the early 1980s, two brothers started the Two Men and a Truck business as a way for them to make extra money while they were in high school. Now, 30 years later, the company has grown to more than 350 locations worldwide.

Brothers Brig Sorber and Jon Sorber first used an old pickup truck to move people’s belongings in the Lansing, Mich. area. After the brothers left for college, their mother Mary Ellen Sheets continued to field calls for moving services while she worked full time.
