Oct. 11: Fall Clothing and Gear Drive

fall-clothing-gear-drive-11-2015Have you cleaned out your closets lately? We think the start of fall is a great time to part ways with excess and share with families in need. We are making it easy for you by collecting needed items at the Fall Member Breakfast (after the season’s first Tortoise & Hare race) on October 11.

The FCRC will be collecting clothing for a non-profit organization called Homeless Gear that is based in Northern Colorado. It’s motto is offering hope and a hand up. Homeless Gear’s mission is to provide homeless men, women, and children with the supplies that they need to survive on the streets and the support and companionship that they need to navigate the path from homelessness to self-­sufficiency.

Needed items include:

  • Jackets and Coats (no dress coats)
  • Hooded Sweatshirts
  • Sweatshirts (no sweaters)
  • Long Underwear
  • Hiking Boots, Tennis Shoes, Winter Boots (no ski/boarding boots)
  • Jeans/Sweatpants
  • Winter Socks (new or reasonably used)
  • Hats/Gloves
  • Backpacks/Daypacks
  • Tents/Tarps
  • Sleeping Bags/Sleeping Pads
