Donate Camping Gear to Veterans

Donate camping gear and clothing to Pine Mountain Sports for our homeless veterans.

Posted By on Fri, Jun 17, 2011 at 5:01 PM

A few weeks ago, I wrote this article about homeless veterans in Central Oregon. Dan McGarigle, the owner of Pine Mountain Sports, read that piece and now his store is holding a clothing and camping gear drive to help out the growing number of homeless veterans in the area. The goods will be given to Central Oregon Veterans Outreach.

The drive runs between July 1 and 10 and donations can be dropped off at Pine Mountain Sports at 255 SW Century Drive. Also, Bend Pet Express is donating returned bags of dog food to COVO during the drive. The items will be given to COVO to be distributed to homeless veterans.

Here are a few things COVO is looking for, but any sort of camping gear and clothing would be appreciated, so if this stuff is gathering dust in your basement, remember there are people out there who would really appreciate to have it.

1-2 person tents

5-6 gallon water containers

Tarps/rain gear

Small camp stoves

Sweaters/outdoor clothing

Sleeping bags

Dog food
