Make Mother’s Day Brighter for Moms in Need

Movers for Moms


For several years, Capital Area District Libraries has partnered with TWO MEN AND A TRUCK on their community service program called “Movers for Moms”. The program encourages community members to donate personal care and household items to women in local shelters, or in a state of need or crisis.


The need for these items is great, as 60% of adults experiencing homelessness with a family are mothers. Since “Movers for Moms” began, over 1 million items in 43 states have been collected and distributed to individuals and shelters. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK crew pick up the donations and deliver them in time for Mother’s Day, striving to brighten the day for moms in need.


Here in Ingham County, 11 of CADL’s 13 branches are serving as collection sites: Aurelius, Dansville, Downtown Lansing, Foster, Haslett, Holt-Delhi, Leslie, Mason, Okemos, South Lansing and Williamston. Donations can be made at any time during their open hours, now through Saturday, May 4.
