Movers for Moms Initiative for the women at Horry County New Directions

Movers for Moms Initiative

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (RELEASE) -This year is the 14th annual Movers for Moms initiative with Two Men and A Truck company. They are working with Abuelo’s, Crossfit, and Mellow Mushroom to collect essential care and comfort items for women at the Horry County New Directions.

Donations would be appreciated for:

  • Hand Soap
  • Bodywash
  • Socks
  • Other toiletries

Last year’s event was affected because of COVID, but in 2019, Movers for Moms® collected more than 383,000 essential items which were distributed to hundreds of shelters for Mother’s Day. Heartbreaking statistics from the Domestic Violence Resource Center state that one in every four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime, and an estimated 1.3 million women are victims of physical assault by an intimate partner each year. According to a national study from the New York State Office for the Prevention of Domestic Violence, approximately 25 percent of homeless women are homeless because of violence in the home.
