Corporate Partners

Since our inception in 2008, countless companies have contributed millions-of-dollars-worth of products, cash, volunteer hours and other support to our organization and the people we serve. The purpose of this page is two-pronged: (1) to provide an overview of ways for companies to get involved and (b) to recognize those companies that are current, ongoing participants in the work that we do. Some of these companies contribute products, others donate financially, and others through a combination of product/financial donations and volunteer service. We do our best to keep our corporate-partner list up-to-date, but if you represent a company that should be on this list, please contact us at any time!

How to Help:

1. Sponsor a Fundraiser/Donate to our Silent Auction

Every year, we host one large fundraiser (Toast to Transitions), publish a calendar and — specific to the Murphy Center — host two awareness-building/fundraising events. You can sponsor any or all of our events, purchase tickets or contribute to our silent auction. Click here to find out more.

2. Donate Corporate Surplus

Retailers, Wholesalers, and Manufacturers: Please consider donating your corporate surplus, samples, returns, and other sources of excess outdoor gear, outdoor basic clothing, non perishable food and hygiene products to Homeless Gear.  For a complete list of the items we collect and distribute, please visit the Product Donations page of our website. Contact us by email at info@HomelessGear.org or by phone at (970) 658-9878 for more information.

3. Hire Participants in Our Hand Up Program

Through our Hand Up program, we provide individuals who are homeless or at-risk of homelessness with one-on-one career counseling and case management. At the same time, we form partnerships with socially-conscious businesses; those businesses agree, in some cases, to hire participants from our program. Want to learn more? Contact our Hand Up Program Manager, Rachel Kirkland, by email at Rachel@HomelessGear.org or by phone at (970) 494-9702.

4. Donate Cash or Help us with our Fundraising Efforts

Financial contributions make possible everything that we do, and every bit counts! Visit this page to make a donation.
