City of Columbia and Two Men and a Truck Start Movers for Moms Campaign to Seek Donations for Displaced Mothers

The City of Columbia is conducting a donation drive with Two Men and a Truck for their Movers for Moms Campaign. Movers for Moms seek to recognize moms in crisis on Mother’s Day by arranging special delivery of gifts to moms that have been displaced from Allen-Benedict Court.

Across the nation, Two Men and A Truck locations partner with local businesses and organizations to collect essential care items. Donors donations can include: soaps, hair styling products, shampoos and conditioners, pillows, blankets, slippers, and other basic clothing items.

Once donations have been collected, Two Men and A Truck and the City of Columbia will pick up and deliver the items to the moms in need, just in time for Mother’s Day.

“Crisis is in everybody’s life. It is crucially important to share love in a very tangible way. Help us give a gift to the women that need and deserve care on Mother’s Day.” says Councilman Edward McDowell, Jr.

Local groups, organizations and agencies that would like to donate to this worthy cause can request a box by calling the City’s Public Relations, Media and Marketing Department at 545-3020 or send an email to pio@columbiasc.gov.
