Joy to The World

Day 7 of Jack Otis Memorial Month

crochet items for homelessSinging..."Joy to the World, Joy to the fishes and deep blue sea...Joy to you and me". The above wonderful donation comes from my friend and former classmate Joy. Joy was also a classmate of Jack Otis. Through the wonderfulness that is Facebook, Joy and I have reconnected more then just when there's a class reunion. How cool is that! Many thanks Joy for your support, your friendship and your thoughtful donation of 6 scarves, and 13 hats. They are all beautifully made, and nice and warm.

Hats 746+13=759
Mittens 145
Socks 153
Squares 516
Rain Ponchos 84

Misc Items I've not counted misc items like all the personal care items, the neck warmers, head bands or yarn etc.

Did you know we've gone "beyond" in our mission yet again? We've extended our help and added 2 family shelters, we've added a couple of schools (through Holy Family), and we've reached "beyond" our community here in Franklin County. We've reached those in need in Vinton County. Read about it HERE.

All donations regardless of size and number are valued. All donations are appreciated, and all donations keep someone warm. We help, one stitch at a time. YOU truly DO make a difference. THANK YOU!

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
