(KSL News) -- A company in Lindon is helping Utah's homeless by donating blue jeans to the Road Home Shelter.

The software company Altiris decided to collect blue jeans as a community service project. Employees collected 500 pairs of jeans in all sizes, which will go to the shelter.

And today project organizers hung the jeans all over the office so employees could see how their work had paid off.

Sue Fahnart, Altiris: "This was really fun, everyone got involved. That's why we did it visually, so everyone can actually see what the contributions look like."

Altiris also matched the jeans with a $500 donation to the shelter.
