Two Men and A Truck locations across Indiana are collecting donations for homeless veterans and military families in crisis for delivery on Veterans Day.
It's called Movers for Military and it's a brand new program.
The purpose of Movers for Military is to recognize the sacrifice veterans have made and to help those vets that are in need.
Organizers say each night, it's estimated that more than 67,000 veterans are homeless.
"We owe these people a great amount of gratitude. They served their country, they served us, they protected us. Its also just clearly a situation that with the economy and everything else, these people need a helping hand," David T. Raibley, with Two Men and A Truck, said.
Two Men and A Truck launched the program in Indiana and Florida this year in hopes of expanding the program across the country in 2013.
"All of our other franchise systems within the United States are looking at this and we expect we'll have 100 percent involvement in it," Raibley said.
The company is partnering with local schools and community organizations to help collect goods. Signature School in downtown Evansville is one of the drop off locations. Students there are working hard to promote the drive.
The Evansville Vet Center will be a recipient of some of the goods collected. They suggest donating items like backpacks, bus tokens, sleeping bags and items that are used every day.
"Combs, hair brushes, soap, and deodorant," Raibley said.
Two Men and A Truck will pick up and deliver the items to partnering veterans hospitals and shelters before Veterans Day.
You're asked to donate by the end of this week so deliveries can be made by Veterans Day.
