Make your mother proud

For the third consecutive year, Saint Leo University and Two Men and a Truck® are partnering on a community project—the Movers for Moms® program, which benefits two local women’s shelters. Items collected during the months of March and of April will be delivered to Sunrise of Pasco County Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Center and Alpha House of Tampa on Mother’s Day. Saint Leo previously participated in this program and a similar project, Movers For Military®, for our homeless military veterans.
