Join the Warm for Winter Project!
Gather your family and friends together to make a difference! Children, women and men in need of affordable housing wait in lines every day for food and assistance. You will help to keep the chill away and brighten a homeless individual’s day by knitting or crocheting hats and scarves --or make them from fleece!
Help us to meet our goal of collecting 1000 handmade hats and scarves this October / November, write and/or call Janice in October and find where you might like to deliver your gifts yourself before Thanksgiving. This year the Oct/Nov 2013 collection locations will be at some Houses of Worship where a Blessing of the Hats and Scarves may also be held. Ask your congregation if they are participating.
1000 represents the number of low income affordable housing units hoped to be built in King County each year to successfully tackle homelessness.
To participate in the Thanksgiving Project, please contact email@example.com. Collections will be at various locations, so be sure to inquire about your nearest location. Pacific Fabrics stores most likely will be collecting during October this year again—see http://pacificfabrics.com.
