Those on the roadways have seen a lot of cars in ditches and even cars stuck in parking spots since Friday’s snow storm, and now one Middle Tennessee group has been trying to help out in a big way - through its Facebook page.

The group is called Jeeps and Wrenches Rescue and Recovery of Middle Tennessee.

During winter weather like this, they'll drive around in a convoy, responding to calls for help posted on their Facebook page, at no charge.

The group originally formed about a year ago as a way to help people, like nurses or those with other critical jobs, get to work.

They said it's a fun way to help out people who need it.

“Why not?” asked JimBob Faulk, one of the group’s members. “It’s just us out having fun. People need to have it done, and most of these tow trucks are charging a lot of money that people don't have.”

The group said it has really grown in popularity over the last three years. They said they have about 100 members now.
