UVGear (formerly Silent Warriors) provides assistance and supplies to Upper Valley citizens experiencing homelessness.


Our mission:

UVGear (Giving Emergency Aid & Resources) fills the gaps between government programs to assist Upper Valley citizens experiencing homelessness. This includes providing sleeping bags, tents, personal hygiene items, food, and bikes. We serve individuals, families, youths, and veterans experiencing homelessness.


“We have come dangerously close to accepting the homeless situation as a problem that we just can't solve.”

— Linda Lingle


We accept donations of clothing, personal hygiene items, and camping supplies to pass along to those in need. Arrange a pickup or take your donations to one of several drop boxes throughout the Upper Valley.
