Two Men and a Truck has been no stranger to philanthropy; ask about their core values, and the company will tell you that giving back to the community is high on their checklist.

Actions spoke louder than words on Tuesday, April 24, as Two Men and a Truck presented the American Cancer Society (ACS) with a substantial donation. Company President Randy Shacka handed over a check for $54,634 – the largest to date. The donation marks more than $620,000 of total donations to the ACS from Two Men and a Truck.

Company franchises across the country donate 10 cents of every move to the ACS. This initiative stemmed from founder Mary Ellen Sheets’ giving nature. She donated her first $1,000 profit to 10 different local charities. The check presented is the total amount collected in 2017.

“You know, when you go to the American Cancer Society’s website,” Shacka said, “it talks a lot about community. I think the word community resonates with a lot of us here at Two Men and a Truck. Back in 1985 in the local Lansing community, we tried our darndest to build a brand, a family and serve our community at the same time … a dime doesn’t seem like a lot, but when we’re doing 55,000 moves a year, that adds up.”

Blythe Moran, executive director of the American Cancer Society Michigan, is grateful. “You have partnered with us as true partners for 17 years,” Moran said in response, “The amount of money that you have raised, the community efforts you have initiated, have really helped spur other organizations and other corporations to help us as well.”

The presentation was made at Two Men and a Truck International Inc Lansing. In attendance were Chief Financial Officer Brant Hartle, Co-CEO Brig Sorber, Chair Melanie Bergeron, Moran, Shacka and Co-CEO Jon Nobis.
