We are helping with a most important program developed by Two Men and a Truck. Each year, Two Men and a Truck collect items for local women’s shelters that help women and children who are victims of abuse or homelessness. The program is called Movers for Moms, and they collect a variety of items from hygiene products to books, pillows etc. and will bring them to the shelters this Mother’s Day weekend. The program does not officially start until the last week of March, however we will be accepting donations now for this great cause. You can bring items to the Black Creek Village Library during our normal business hours.
