Projects to build Community
Our neighbors who are homeless and in transition have needs. From mats of plastic bags to retain body heat, to plastic backpack covers to keep their items dry, to sewn mittens from sweaters and fleece, to handmade blankets, to sweaters for their canine companions who are their family, the needs are diverse, challenging, and rewarding since every community is different. Please take a moment to review our Projects. We would love your participation!
Susan's Barn Raising Quilt is inspired by our very first donation received from California. Susan was a vibrant woman and ardent knitter who succumbed to cancer. Her legacy lives on through our work.
Sitto's Squares are a tribute to my family and the generations of women who have come before us who celebrated the art of yarn crafts.
Mats and covers made from strips of plastic bags are time consuming but so rewarding. A great youth or group community service project. Don't want to make a large project? Make a block or two using scrap yarn and we'll sew them up to make one project. How lovely to have a blanket stitched with love from all over.
You will not meet a group of individuals so devoted to canines. Their love and devotion is authentic and heartwarming. Consider knitting or crocheting warmth for the pooches.
Lastly, even if you cannot, will not, hate to knit or crochet, you can easily make and sew mittens from fleece or old sweaters that are coveted. We never have enough.
Are you part of a Girl or Boy Scout Troop that is looking for a project? Are you looking for a friend or family community service activity? Can you knit or crochet a square to build a community afghan? We have the tools and resources to assist. Contact us! Our neighbors need us to care and to continue building community.
