The City of Columbia is conducting a donation drive with Two Men and a Truck for their Movers for Moms Campaign. Movers for Moms seek to recognize moms in crisis on Mother’s Day by arranging special delivery of gifts to moms that have been displaced from Allen-Benedict Court.

Once donations have been collected, Two Men and A Truck and the City of Columbia will pick up and deliver the items to the moms in need, just in time for Mother’s Day.
