Mountain Side Gear Rental's inaugural Share the Warmth Gear and Coat Drive was a huge success, according to business founder John Hildebrandt.

“When we came up with the idea to hold a gear and coat drive, we knew the community would respond, but the result exceeded everybody's expectations,” he said. “I can't wait to see how big it gets next year.”

The event took place Oct. 21, in Mountain Side Gear Rental's parking lot, 15985 South Golden Road.

Heading Home, a subcommittee of the Jefferson County Child and Youth Leadership Commission, was the umbrella organization that Mountain Side Gear Rental worked with. Through Heading Home, a number of local organizations will benefit from the drive — The Action Center, Metro Care Providers Network, the Department of Human Services, Mean Street Ministries, Family Tree, The Rising church and Jeffco schools' community and family connections department.

“A major part of our mission is to support this great community,” Hildebrandt said, “and on Saturday, we witnessed what makes this community so special.”
