With the hard-hit economy, many Americans are in need of a little help this year.
That’s why TODAY’s Al Roker is packing up the Penske truck once again to hit the road for the annual “Lend a Hand” trip. In its ninth consecutive year, “Lend a Hand” continues its mission to help small charities across the country that work toward improving conditions in their communities. Roker’s goodwill road trip kicks off in San Francisco, Calif. The trip continues throughout the week in Bozeman, Mont. (Tuesday), Des Moines, Iowa (Wednesday), Memphis, Tenn. (Thursday), and Rye, N.H. (Friday). This year, one special surprise charity located in a city in need will receive a “Lend a Hand” donation.
The following video is from Tuesday’s event at Eagle Mount in Bozeman.

Eagle Mount creates therapeutic recreational opportunities for people of all ages and disabilities. Through Eagle Mount, persons with special needs are challenged to achieve the previously unthinkable in skiing, ice skating, swimming, horseback riding, golfing and more. Children with cancer are given the freedom of normalcy by participating in one of three summer camps. Through the use of nature, activities, equine therapy and just good old outdoor fun, children and adults are offered life-changing opportunities as well as the chance to move beyond their personal disability and “soar like eagles.”
