A local veteran and his family now have furniture thanks to Walker Furniture's Home for the Holidays program.

Every year, Walker Furniture gives furniture to those who need it during the holidays. This year, they are giving furniture to 30 families.

Greg and Carolyn Peterson spend 8 months living in their car after she lost her job in Idaho four years ago. She told 13 Action News that they weren't sure how they were going to bounce back.

Greg Peterson, who has a cyst on his brain, says that he has been sleeping on a pile of clothes or an air mattress for the last four years.

Walker Furniture gave the family beds, a couch and a table.
