Square Cow Movers is all about being neighborly and giving back to the community whenever their expertise needed. Last year the Austin moving company found themselves smack dab in the middle of the Annual Settlement Home for Children Charity Garage Sale. As you can imagine there was a lot of sale items to haul around, but the movers were more than happy to meet the challenge.
This year Square Cow Movers is doubling its participation and will have four trucks and 8-10 guys volunteering for two days. On October 24th and 25th the guys will help The Settlement Home for Children get geared up for the big event by hauling and unpacking donated goods at the Parmer Event Center. With 21 different merchandise departments they have their work cut out for them. But it’s work the guys are glad to take on since it helps a local charity that’s been helping kids in need for nearly 100 years.

This year there will also be a preview party on October 30th. The party will give shoppers a chance to check out the goods before they go on sale. Last year around 25,000 people showed up to shop so there will definitely be competition for the high demand items. You can purchase tickets for the party at www.settlementhome.org.
