Philanthropy

2 College Brothers takes pride in community involvement and giving back to the community in which we're located: Gainesville! We like moving furnitures, but we love moving lives.

 

November, 2013

2 College Brothers helped the Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity at the University of Florida in its efforts to help improve the holidays for less fortunate children.  In the event dubbed "Build a Better Holiday", residents of the community were encouraged to come out and design stuffed bears donated by Build a Bear.  The event raised closed to $30,000 which was also donated to Toys for Tots.  2 College Brothers was in charge of transporting the hundreds of bears to be given out to the children!

April 2012: Clothing Drives at FSU & UCF

April 26th, 2012 - Much like the toy drive conducted at the University of Florida around the holiday season, a clothing drive was held both at Florida State University and University of Central Florida. The format was a contest between the sororities, and the prize was well worth their participation. A free move-out of the entire sorority house was offered to the winning sorority at each school.

First place winners:

  • Kappa Delta at the University of Central Florida in Orlando, FL
  • Delta Zeta at Florida State University in Tallahassee, FL

Total collected: 1,356 pounds of clothes to benefit Goodwill.

 

 

 

December 2011: Toy Drive at UF


2 College Brothers moving company toy drive in Gainesville, FL at the University of Florida
In the spirit of the holidays, 2 College Brothers, a student-run moving company, held a campus-wide toy drive at the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida. However, this wasn’t your typical toy drive; it was in the form of a contest between sixteen Greek sororities. Of course, every contest involves a prize. 2 College Brothers offered the winners a free move-out of their entire sorority house, valued at over $4,250, as a prize for collecting the most toys amongst all sororities.

After ten days of collection, Zeta Tau Alpha pulled through with the most toys granting them a free move-out of their sorority house at the end of the Spring 2012 semester. Second place: Alpha Delta Pi. Moving out a house of 50 girls might seem tedious, but I don’t think our Gainesville movers will mind.

The contest resulted in so many toys all of which were donated to the Children’s Home Society. 2 College Brothers wanted to add a personal touch to end the toy drive. Some of our team members hand-delivered a box of toys to a family in the Gainesville area. The kids were ecstatic! See the toy drive video above.

November 2011: Sand Volleyball Tournament

2 College Brothers helped sponsor a sand volleyball tournament at the University of Florida benefiting orphaned children born with cleft lip & palate. All proceeds were donated to the Love Without Boundaries Foundation.

June 2011: Send Your Child to Summer Camp Contest

We helped send a child to summer camp by sponsoring the winning family  with a $300 check. With the help of 2 College Brothers, Mariah, our winner, was able to attend a ballet summer camp! Each participant in the contest was required to submit a photo of their child relating to their favorite sport or activity. The winner was determined by the most "likes" of the child's photo on our facebook page. The contest was followed by a BBQ celebration where the 2 College Brothers crew, the winning family, and friends came out to enjoy a sunny day at the park.
