‘Moving’ Gesture by Two Men and a Truck in the West Valley Helps Sun Cities 4 Paws Animal Rescue

Two Men and a Truck Feb. 20, 2015

Every month for nearly two years, movers from tJoseph Talley and Victory Val Verge of Two Menand a Truck- West Valley deliver donated furniture to 4 PawsAnimal Rescue in Sun City pic 1he Northwest Valley franchise of TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® picks up large, donated items such as tables, desks and couches and delivers them to a Sun City thrift store located at 11129 W. Michigan Ave. in Youngtown  that benefits Sun Cities 4 Paws Animal Rescue (4 Paws), a no-kill shelter that provides sanctuary and lifetime care to homeless pets until adoption.

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® is the franchising industry’s leading moving services brand. The Northwest Valley and Southwest Valley franchises are owned by Jodie Smith and Beth King, who first became aware of 4 Paws a few years ago.

“The Thrift Store is a major source of income to help 4 Paws achieve their mission, so when we learned that they had plenty of people willing to donate goods but were having trouble getting those goods to the store, it became obvious that TWO MEN AND A TRUCK could solve that need,” said Beth King, co-owner of TWO MEN AND A TRUCK – West Valley. “It feels great knowing that our four wheels are making a difference for 4 Paws.”

“A key reason that 4 Paws is able to achieve its mission of helping homeless cats is thanks to the money generated through the Thrift Store and other donations, so the fact that we can count on TWO MEN AND A TRUCK to help us replenish the store inventory on a regular, consistent schedule has been vital to our efforts,” said Maria Gillmore of 4 Paws Animal Rescue. “While it sounds easy to pick up the items, you realize it’s not easy at all after you see how many items are donated every month and the sheer weight of the goods. Without TWO MEN AND A TRUCK’s ongoing help, it would be much harder to keep the thrift store stocked.”

“4 Paws does a great job rescuing cats in the Sun Cities area, facilitating adoptions and providing both temporary care and permanent shelter to homeless pets, working for a humane way to solve the pet overpopulation problem,” said Jodie Smith, co-owner of TWO MEN AND A TRUCK – West Valley. “We wanted to help and when we learned of their logistical needs, we knew exactly how we could benefit the organization.”

People wishing to donate large items needing pick-up can call the shelter or thrift store to schedule a pick-up. The public is also invited to visit the store Monday through Saturday between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. to purchase items with the proceeds benefiting 4 Paws.
