Katrina Needs and Outdoor Industry Donations Update – September 7, 2005

Horny Toad donates clothing valued at $40,000 wholesale
Realizing that many survivors of the storm have literally nothing but the clothes on their backs, Horny Toad shipped over $40,000 worth of wholesale product for the disaster relief in two separate orders on Tuesday, September 7 – one pallet to The Backpacker in Baton Rouge, La., and the other to Buffalo Peak Outfitters in Jackson, Miss.

JanSport ships daypacks to Buffalo Peak

 48 daypacks are being shipped directly to Buffalo Peak from JanSport's warranty services center in Everett, Washington. Tommy Smith of Buffalo Peak indicated he could put those packs into immediate use.

Adventure 16 shipping numerous products from both wholesale and retail divisions
As of today, three pallets of goods, containing 74 Pants, 273 Shirts, 30 Shorts, 32 Jackets, 70 hats, 582 pair of hiking boots, 294 Water Bottles, 14 duffel bags, 156 flashlights and numerous foam sleeping pads, insect repellent, sunscreen, lip balm, and hydration packs, were being shipped to Buffalo Peak for distribution.

Ex Officio donating Buzz Off products and committing percent of sales to recovery
As of today, Ex Officio has confirmed the company is shipping supplies of Buzz Off clothing to both Buffalo Peak Outfitters and The Backpacker. In addition, the company is donating 5 percent of all direct sales to Northwest Medical Teams and World Concern (Ex Officio's non-profit partners) to support their relief efforts. In addition, the company has committed to supporting its spokesperson, Brian Brawdy, a CBS2 reporter, as he works with SNEWS® to help coordinate human relay teams to get food, first-aid, clothing, temporary shelter into hard to reach areas due to thousands of downed trees, utility poles, debris and abandoned vehicles as well as develop a method of communication via a satellite phone to connect families with other missing members. Ex Officio will be providing Brawdy with a quantity of Buzz Off Baja shirts to be given to TV reporters who are broadcasting in the field in hopes of protecting them against mosquito-born illnesses and sun exposure.

Outdoor Research is shipping one full pallet of toiletries and more

Outdoor Research tells us they are shipping one full pallet, to be split between Buffalo Peak and The Backpacker, containing kit pouches and toiletry supplies. In addition, OR staff has been bringing in old sleeping pads, sleeping bags, clothing, and other items that would be of use to those now displaced by the Hurricane Katrina.

Koby Crooks, aka Alpine Cowboy, and Marmot working to help Massey's
SNEWS® received word that Crooks has been taking point on working with the company credit departments he represents on behalf of Massey's to ensure deliveries happen when they should, and that Mike Massey and his team have what they need to get up and running again. Marmot, one of Crooks' rep accounts, has already confirmed that it is extending dating to Massey's in the 180 – 360 day range, linking a banner from its own site to Massey's online store to help drive much-needed business to keep employees on the payroll, drop-shipping for Massey's for on-line orders, and donating approximately $10,000 worth of product to Massey's for the store to sell online with the intention that 50 percent of the revenue goes to Massey's and the other 50 percent goes toward direct Hurricane Relief, such as the Red Cross.
