Two local organizations teamed up to make sure struggling families can also have a special day to honor mom with Mother's Day just around the corner.

Two Men and a Truck along with Alexandra House are working on the campaign called Movers for Moms.

Chad Werner of Two Men and a Truck and Jenny Green from Alexandra House joined Megan Newquist in the studio to talk about what the campaign is all about.

Two Men and A Truck is collecting donations of nonperishable food items at its New Brighton locations. The items collected during the campaign will go toward the Alexandra House, a local nonprofit that addresses the needs of domestic and sexual violence victims. The campaign will wrap up on Sunday for Mother's Day.

Drop off donations at 550 1st St. SW in New Brighton.
