Boot Hill Distillery will be collecting items to donate to the Manna House of Dodge City with its first “Fill the Barrel” campaign, which started Nov. 20 and runs through the end of the year.

The distillery is accepting donations of nonperishable food items that will benefit the Manna House.

"Our community supports the distillery which we greatly appreciate, and this is one way we can give back,” said Hayes Kelman, owner of Boot Hill Distillery.

Along with nonperishable items, donations of personal hygiene products are being accepted, including soap, shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, lotion and wipes.

To collect donations, Boot Hill Distillery has set up a 53-gallon whiskey barrel in its Tasting Room and will knock 10% off an entire bar tab during the visit for those who bring items with them.

Additionally, the distillery will also announce drink specials throughout the rest of the year and donate a portion of those drink special sales to Manna House of Dodge City.

"The Manna House benefits so many in our community, especially this time of year,” said Boot Hill Distillery director of sales Lee Griffith. “We wanted to help collect things they need and make it fun as well."

Boot Hill Distillery is located at 501 W. Spruce St. and operates from 3 to 10 p.m. Wednesday to Saturday.

Those dropping off items before normal business hours or who have other questions may call 620-371-6309.
