Huntsville businesses rally around shelter moms

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – Two men and a truck in Huntsville are hosting their 2022 Movers for Moms campaign. The charity outreach program began on April 3 and will continue until May 3.

There are 68 public collection boxes in the Tennessee Valley, as well as 20 churches, schools and organizations that collect items privately.

Here is a list of some of the items they are looking for:

  • Layers (4, 5, 6)
  • Pull-ups (3-4T, 5-6T)
  • Adult Pull Ups (M & XL)
  • Shampoo and conditioner
  • Shower gel
  • Hair Grease
  • Hairbrushes and combs
  • hand soap
  • Hydroalcoholic gel
  • Vaseline
  • handkerchiefs
  • Disinfectant wipes
  • Deodorant
  • Multi vitamins for women (B complex, B-12, C 1000, melatonin 10 mg, vitamin D 5000)
  • Cold medicine
  • cough drops

Stephanie Mills, Marketing Director at Two Men and a Truck, says, “We have over 2,000 articles, but in recent years we collected over 11,000 articles in 2018 and then 23,000 articles in 2019.”

Two Men and a Truck hopes to reach that number, or even surpass it, this year.

Mills also explains, “Many of these women living in a shelter are fleeing a bad situation, such as domestic violence, homelessness or substance abuse. And so they might not have time to pick up a specific essential care item like deodorant, shampoo or conditioner just to get away from a situation, so we try to collect the items which the shelter needs the most to be able to gift moms.

Donations will be collected the first week of May and delivered on May 7 to mothers and children living at the Downtown Rescue Mission’s women’s and children’s shelter, Owen’s House.

Two Men and a Truck will be hosting a “Stuff the Truck” event on April 28 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Rosenblum Realty located at 2314 Memorial Parkway SW, Huntsville, Ala. 35801.
