From November 26th to December 10th, Odell Brewing Company will be hosting the Homeless Gear Drive in its taproom. Homeless Gear collects donations of outdoor gear, essential and basic outdoor clothing and non-perishable food and hygiene products to distribute to the homeless. While many of the items needed are outdoor-activity oriented (hiking, camping or backpacking gear) many things that are common to any household are appreciated as well. So stop by Odell anytime between now and the 10th to donate. There is also a contest for the “best” donation where the winner will receive a gift package from the brewery. To get more information on the Homeless Gear program, check out www.odellbrewing.com/event/homeless-gear-drive/ and www.homelessgear.com.
