From the Upper Valley VT/NH Facebook page, Kate Barber writes:

Who needs Barber Strong Gear? I hate to admit it, but Tom may have been right, I think we ordered too much apparel. It seems a shame to keep them boxed up so we are going to be giving away all that we have left (and we have a lot). We have sweatpants, T-shirts, long sleeve T’s and hoodies in youth and adult sizes. You can get your Free Barber Strong gear at Big Green T’s in Lebanon, Stateline Sports in White River Junction, Meriden Deli Mart in Meriden NH or by contacting me. If you don’t live in the area, send me a PM of what you would like and I will drop it in the mail to you.

Folks are also leaving suggestions of where some of the clothing can be donated, such as David’s House. A very nice example of paying it forward. Here is Julie at her surprise welcome-home party after returning from a Boston hospital in February:
