HOUSTON COMMUNITY SERVICE
Donating Our MOVITS Portable Storage to Habitat for Humanity
In February of 2015, we donated one of our smaller MOVITS to Habitat for Humanity in Houston! Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit organization that builds houses for people in need. With more than 1,400 local affiliates around the country, they have helped build and repair more than 800,000 houses! More than 1 million people volunteer each year to help build homes, so we are very proud to have donated one of our MOVITS to this great organization.

Superhero 5K benefiting Keep Kids Connected
On September 22, 2014, a few members of the 3 Men Movers family got together bright and early to participate in the Superhero 5K benefiting Keep Kids Connected! Keep Kids Connected was created to help keep kids connected to their family and friends while they are undergoing treatment for cancer or other life-threatening illnesses.
The organization was inspired by Caitlyn Mortus who is, herself, a cancer survivor. Her wish is that every kid battling cancer or any life-threatening illness be given a computer so they can stay connected to their family and friends while they go through their treatments. We had a blast taking part in such an inspiring organization!
Delivering Donated Bikes to Over 20,000 Children in Houston
3 Men Movers executive team, office staff, and movers volunteered their time on December 12, 2013, to partner with the Elves and more organization for the 9th year in a row. Bikes and toys were donated and delivered with the help of the volunteers to over 20,000 children in the Houston community.
The volunteers of 3 Men Movers worked alongside Elves & More volunteers to load donated bikes and toys onto 3 Men Movers trucks to be delivered to local schools in the Houston community. In order to get a bike, each child met certain criteria throughout the year, such as good grades, positive behavior or attendance to qualify for the gifts. The staff always looks forward to volunteering each year to bring smiles to the faces of deserving children throughout the city.
Box Recycling Program
Demonstrating their continued commitment to providing helpful services and environmental stewardship, 3 Men Movers launched a box recycling program in May 2013. Box recycling services are offered not just to customers but the entire Houston community free of charge.
The drop-off site for box recycling is just behind the Houston 3 Men Movers office at 6853 Southwest Freeway. The area is marked for box recycling and the service is open to the community from 7 am – 6 pm Monday through Saturday.
Trees for Houston Recognizes 3 Men Movers For Their Continued Efforts To Plant Trees And Make Houston A Healthier City
On behalf of the Board of Directors of Trees For Houston, I want to thank you and 3 Men Movers Ltd. for your generous $854 donation. Your support allows our program to plant and maintain trees and continue our efforts to build a healthier Houston region for all to enjoy.
During our 2012-2013 planting season, we planted 35,868 trees including:
- 23,614 trees with green partners across eight counties
- 2,115 trees at 13 volunteer plantings along bayous, streets, esplanades, trails and in tribute groves.
- 877 trees at 37 schools including 23 volunteer plantings
Also, to support our long-term organizational vision of bringing the cost point of each tree down to a level where a sustained program of free trees can be provided in large quantities, we have expanded the Trees For Houston nursery program to include four farms. We currently have 23,000 trees of various species and sizes growing at these farms.
We appreciate your thoughtful contribution and consider ourselves fortunate to have such conscientious partners working on our behalf.
