Medford, OR. -- The Bearded Brotherhood will shave their beloved beards if Backpacks for the Homeless meets their $1,000 goal by December 15th. 

For the past nine years, Rob Price and his family have been collecting items to give to those in need. They would go to Grants Pass, Shady Cove, and Ashland just to pick up used clothing to hand out.

This year, Price started a GoFundMe page to encourage more people to help. He says they've never asked for money before, and decided to this year because the traveling was adding up, and this way he can pick out what items to donate.

Price says he's been dedicated to the campaign for the past nine years, because he's had to go through some hard times as well, "We've been in times of need ourselves. I think once you've been there, and you get out of that you look back and you want to keep other people from having to experience that."

Price also brought in his club, the Bearded Brotherhood, to inspire people to donate. If they meet their $1,000 goal the group will shave their beloved beards for the cause. One man has been growing his for 14 years.

To make sure the group lives up to their promise, the barbershop Blade and Bourbon decided to step in. They'll be the ones shaving the beards.

Blade and Bourbon is no stranger to charity. If someone has an upcoming job interview but can't afford a haircut, they'll give one for free.

They told NewsWatch12 Backpacks for the Homeless goes hand-in-hand with the fundraisers they do, "Anything that we can do to give back to the community, and just show that we care, that goes a long way. I believe that's how small businesses should operate, especially in local communities like this," says Part-Owner, Zach Bolton. 

Backpacks for the Homeless plans to give out their collected supplies throughout 2018.
