LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - The bright purple and teal colors on the sides of the Family Crisis Center of East Texas's truck will make it much easier to spot in the region.
The truck is used to pick up large donations that are being donated to the two thrift stores in Lufkin and Nacogdoches. Executive Director Heather Kartye said the 1996 delivery truck was white and ready for a face lift.
"We bought the truck from Sound Techs and they had previously bought it from someone else," Kartye said. "If you looked close you could see some of the old graphics."
Kartye said the idea was brought to the board to purchase a wrap for the truck that would advertise the shelter that serves domestic violence victims across all of East Texas.
"We picked it up yesterday," Kartye said. "It is fresh of the press."
The truck has the center's logo on each side and the crisis hotline on the truck.
"The number is the best number to use," Kartye said. "You can use it to either donate items that go back to help our women or if you need to reach out for our help it is on there too."
Kartye said people wanting to utilize the truck will be put through a screening process before the truck is sent out to pick up deliveries. For more information, click here.
