Hundreds of people have stepped up to help a homeless veteran who's been living in his van along with his 7-year-old dog after losing his home to foreclosure.
The Marietta Daily Journal reports 65-year-old John Chambers lost his house in January 2013 and has lived in a Walmart parking lot since then.
Chambers says he was evicted without warning, lost his job after his employer learned he was homeless and has had trouble finding alternative housing through the Veterans Administration.
The newspaper published a story explaining Chambers' situation earlier this week and since then, hundreds of people have offered money, temporary shelter and food for his dog, Scout.
A metro Atlanta real estate agent and her attorney have also formed a nonprofit group to try saving Chambers' home.
