Representatives from area moving company Two Men and a Truck are donating medical-grade face masks and assorted goodies for doctors and nurses at Baylor Scott & White hospitals in Frisco and McKinney.

After receiving a gift of more than 100 face masks, the company's North Dallas-area franchise set up a donation of 50 masks to Baylor Scott & White Medical Center–Centennial in Frisco on April 3. They plan to donate 50 more masks to Baylor Scott & White Medical Center–McKinney next week.

“It was the best,” Two Men and A Truck’s Shannon Arnold said of dropping off the bags of goodies. “It totally gave me energy to do the drop-off for next week. They came out [and] held up the sign that said, ‘Thank you from Baylor Scott and White.’ It was amazing.”

Arnold also put together bags containing protein bars, snacks, lip balms, children’s toys and coloring books as well as handmade cards from parents and children in the Trinity Falls area of McKinney where she lives.

“I had the kids all write their name and their age on the bottom of the card, too,” Arnold said. “When I pitched it to Trinity Falls, I said, ‘Hey parents, you can do art class, you can do writing, and if you walk it over to my house and drop it on the front porch, then you've done PE for the day.”


While many businesses have experienced a downturn during the coronavirus pandemic, Arnold said Two Men and A Truck have been “extremely busy.”

“If [people] need support to help them shelter in place [or] to basically get to their next home, we're there for them,” Arnold said. “We're also paying our movers and drivers $3 extra while this is a shelter in place, because we know they're going out there, and they're still working hard.”

She said the company is diligent about keeping trucks sanitized to protect its workers and clients. Arnold also said local workers are happy to still have jobs during a time when so many businesses are laying off employees.

“They are willing to do whatever they need to do,” she said. “They've all been very thankful that we're still open.”

After the donations to the hospitals, Arnold said the business plans to start donating to local law enforcement agencies, starting with the Plano Police Department.

"We'll do whatever we can and keep going as long as we're able to,” Arnold said.
