DOVER, Del.- A local moving company has focused the last five weeks on collecting goods for a homeless shelter for women and children.

Two Men and a Truck of Dover takes part in its national company's efforts to serve mothers on Mother's Day.

Jeremy Brown is president of the Dover business.

"We've been collecting for about the past five weeks, and we've actually hat to go pick up everything several times," he said. "There's just not enough space within these partner locations to house everything that's being donated."

Tasha Scott is the case manager at The Shepherd Place, and she says donations are very important for a shelter like theirs.

"[They are] the way that we survive," she said. "The way that we go on. The way we are able to succeed in the community and to do what we do is through donations. Every donation and any donation big or small, we greatly appreciate."

Brown says it is all about making sure all mothers have a good weekend.

"Mother's Day is designed to be a joyous and very celebratory occasion, but unfortunately for some that's not always the case," he said. "And our goal as a brand is to do our best to change that."

Two Men and a Truck did this project last year, too. In 2015, the program was run in 39 states across the county as the company is a nationwide one. Their donations totaled 230,000 gifts to shelters across the United States. Their goal for 2016 is 300,000.
