Madison TWO MEN AND A TRUCKĀ® Madison Collecting Items to Help Local Homeless Veterans - Movers for Military Program Aids Local Military Heroes this Veterans Day

Online PR News – 11-October-2013 – Madison, Wisconsin – On Veterans Day ā€“ November 11 ā€“ the country honors the brave men and women who have made tremendous sacrifices to protect our freedoms. Unfortunately, many veterans across the country are struggling with unemployment and homelessness, relying on others to come to their aid as they once did for their country. For such veterans, residential and commercial Madison movers, TWO MEN AND A TRUCKĀ®, is running the Movers for Military program.

The National Coalition for Homeless Veterans estimates that in the United States approximately 1.5 million veterans are considered at risk of homelessness due to poverty or lack of support. With the Movers for Military initiative, TWO MEN AND A TRUCKĀ® seeks to support those who gave of themselves.

Working in tandem with schools and other community organizations, including the VFW and several KinderCare centers locally, Madison moving company TWO MEN AND A TRUCKĀ® is collecting essential items for donation to Porchlight, an organization providing critical support to veterans in crisis.
