TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Goodwill Industries of Southern Arizona is helping veterans celebrate the holiday season.

Goodwill officials said they partnered with the Transitional Housing for Veterans center, called Esperanza en Escalante, to give away 24 Christmas trees to homeless veterans and their families Thursday afternoon.

"When Esperanza En Escalante called us and let us know that they wanted to provide trees for the vets and their families this year, we didn't hesitate,"  Vice President of Programs and Marketing Liz Gulick stated in a news release. "We're so grateful for the support the community has shown us with their generous donations and shopping at our stores that has allowed us to help these families this year. We hope it will provide a little Christmas cheer to the people who have sacrificed so much for our country."
