Austintown Fitch students collect items for Movers for Moms

Over the past few weeks, students at Austintown Fitch have been collecting personal items for mothers and children who may be displaced due to tragedy or domestic violence. It's all for the charity Movers for Moms, sponsored by Two Men and a Truck, which recognizes moms in crisis on Mother's Day.

"This is the fourth year we have collected for the cause. The great thing is, all of the items stay local. We could be collecting for our next door neighbor that we may not know is in trouble," said Fitch Counselor MariBeth McGlynn, who organizes the collection.

In 2017, every Two Men and a Truck location participated and collectively gathered more than 295,000 donations for women living in shelters on Mother's Day. Locally, the company has chosen the YWCA of Youngstown as the recipient of all of the items collected for Movers for Moms.
