Some two to three million people have been left homeless by the 7.6-magnitude earthquake that struck South Asia, according to a press release issued by the North Face and GlobalGiving. Here, find out where you can donate gear to the help in the relief effort. Donated gear will be collected Nov. 18 to 23 at nationwide The North Face retail stores. Donations must be clean, functional, and limited to three- and four-season tents, tarps, sleeping bags, pads, packs, waterproof and/or insulated jackets, insulated tops, or layering pieces (i.e. fleece, wool).

During the first week of December, Willie Benegas will lead The North Face Athlete Team, which includes Renan Ozturk, Cedar Wright, and Patrick Kenny, a colleague of Benegas, to the Utar Padesh region to survey damage, assess avalanche danger to relief camps, and deliver gear to the hardest-hit villages.
