Items to benefit clients of YWCA in Madison and Rock County
Across the county, millions of women look forward to spending Mother’s Day with their families. However, many women in the US will be spending the day in homeless shelters, many as a result of domestic abuse.
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® will be delivering items collected in its annual Movers for Moms® donation drive to women in shelter just in time for Mother’s Day. Donations have been collected at more than 80 businesses and organizations in Dane County and Rock County, and will be picked up and delivered on Thursday, May 5, to the YWCA of Madison and Rock County.
Two trucks will be collecting items throughout the day on May 8, with a special delivery is scheduled to the Madison YWCA at 3 pm on Thursday, May 5. Last year, each YWCA received approximately 6,000 items for immediate use by shelter clients. With more than 80 donation sites collecting items, we anticipate the possibility of 20,000 items being delivered that day.
