Bend, OR – Hydro Flask—the award-winning leader in high-performance, insulated stainless steel flasks—announced the donation of approximately 6,000 Hydro Flask products to the Community Action Partnership of Oregon (CAPO) and its 17 Community Action Agencies (CAAs). Hydro Flask’s product donation is aimed at helping CAPO’s agencies, whose mission is to eradicate poverty in Oregon.
On January 29th, CAA volunteers throughout Oregon, including Central Oregon-based NeighborImpact, will conduct a one-night count of the state’s homeless population. Volunteers will use Hydro Flasks to provide homeless individuals with drinking water, hot coffee and warm food, along with items such as blankets and clothing. Volunteers visit shelters, homeless camps, and other locations to help those in need while collecting vital data in the process.
“We cannot thank Hydro Flask enough for their amazing support and donation during this event,” said NeighborImpact CEO and CAPO board member Scott Cooper. “The one-night count is critical to funding and the fight against homelessness and poverty in Oregon. Many of us take for granted the ability to keep things hot or cold. For a homeless person, a Hydro Flask is truly a luxury.”
Hydro Flasks were distributed across the state from the company’s Portland warehouse by community action agencies and with the help of the Oregon Food Bank.
“Since care, believe and commit are core values, we look for meaningful ways apply this in our business and community,” said Hydro Flask CEO Scott Allan. “We are proud to support CAPO’s efforts in ending homelessness in Oregon.”
