The group, Cans For Veterans is set up at 11th and Franklin, accepting canned goods to give to homeless veterans.
Organizers say there are about 500 homeless servicemen and women throughout the Tri-State.
This is the group's first year asking for donations during the festival. James Henager with the group says, "It makes me feel pretty good because I have some problems myself. I'm disabled myself and most of our volunteers are disabled veterans they really can't work they're trying to make a difference in doing a little bit of volunteer work."
The volunteers will be collecting cans at the festival through Saturday.
