Stephanie Mills, the Marketing Director at Two Men and a Truck, says, “we are over 2,000 items, but in years past we had more than 11,000 items collected in 2018 and then 23,000 items in 2019.”
Two Men and a Truck hopes to hit that number, or surpass it, this year.
Mills also explains, “A lot of these women living in a shelter are running from a bad situation, like domestic violence, homelessness or drug abuse. And so they may not have time to grab a specific an essential care item like a deodorant, shampoo or conditioner just to get away from a situation, so we are trying to collect those items that the shelter is most in need of to be able to gift to the moms.”
Donations will be gathered the first week of May and dropped off on May 7 to the mothers and children living at the Downtown Rescue Mission’s women and children’s shelter, Owen’s House.
Two Men and a Truck will be holding 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.
