Operation** Give warmth**

Recommended Posts

Hello all! I have decided I'm going on a mission...........I, am trying to collect at LEAST 400 items---hats, scarves, or mittens for adults and children male and female to take to our local homeless shelter in October! Giving myself PLENTY of time----I love the handcrafted look and would preferrably like to take only handcrafted items!!! THUS......if you have extra time on your hands and like to donate----PLEASE contact me, I would love your help contributing!

I hope to make this a yearly event, not sure how it will pan out, it is sure worth a try.

I collected the BIGGEST truckload of clothing items and dropped them off on New Years Eve and the people lining up to get dinner, with their worn, ragged clothes and shoes broke my heart. I figured if I can do the clothing drive in November and the GIVE WARMTH mission for October---just in time for the winter months to be able to help people out!

 

**THANK YOU IN ADVANCE TO THOSE OF YOU WHO CAN HELP ME!!!** Remember.......homelessness doesn't judge----it can happen to any one of us at any time!

A wonderful cause and I would be happy to donate some scarves. I have a lot of yarn left over from the Special Olympics scarf project that I have been trying to decide what to do with. Along came your request.

Just let me know where to send the finished product and thank you very much for doing this. :hug

The homeless and the hungry are especially close to my heart as I was nearly so several times, the latest time when I 'inherited' the care of my little sister when my mother died. I was going to donate my stash, but now I know just what to do with them! As soon as I get a couple going, I'll PM you and send them your way!!

 

BTW, it would be great to see a tally going of how much you get from us, maybe even a picture of your collected goodies!

FYI - if you have a Wal Mart - I noticed at my local Wal Mart the winter hats were on sale for $1

Kiyo, I have quite a few things made for you. I will likely wait until I have a box full before I send them to you.

 

I don't have your address though. Could you please PM it to me?
