MILWAUKEE -- During the holiday season, a Milwaukee couple is collecting your junk cars, and putting something good into the hands of those who need it most.

Linzi Gatzow and her husband, Dawayne own Down & Out Towing & Recovery. During the month of December, for every junk car they receive, they're giving a care package to a homeless man or woman.

"Every bit counts, you know?" said Dawayne Gatzow.

After picking up a car on Sunday, Dec. 1, Dawayne Gatzow made his first delivery near 6th and Clybourn streets.

"Just to show them that there's some hope," he said. "There's somebody out there thinking about them."

Back at home, Linzi Gatzow and her sister-in-law put care into more packages -- working to make a difference not only in the lives of those who receive them, but also, in the couple's 6-year-old daughter, Isabella.

"I definitely wanted her to know that not everybody is as blessed as we can be," said Linzi Gatzow. "On the front of every little note, we put, or she put, I should say, 'You are loved.'"
