A 14-foot van is being put to good use by several local groups.
A moving van may seem like an unusual choice for philanthropy, but it meets a genuine need, explains Accent Realtors owner Paul Wheeler.

Nonprofits and community groups can use the 14-foot van without charge for any function.

Wheeler said he wanted to do more than write checks and volunteer time.

'I called volunteer groups and nonprofits and asked what they needed,' Wheeler said. 'They said they get a lot of stuff donated to them, but no way to move that stuff. So we thought of the community truck for anyone to use.'
