Joint Organization for Inner-City Needs

Our good friend Lynn has been out and about, again helping with delivery of our needed knitted and crocheted goodies.  As you know, if you've been here on the blog reading previously she delivers to schools in need (Avalon, Highland, West Broad and others), Holy Family, St. Vincents and wherever she knows and finds need.  I sure appreciate her ability to take care of some of these deliveries for me.  She's recently found out about a group called, J.O.I.N.  JOIN=Joint Organization for Inner-City Needs.  They're located in downtown Columbus and serve many in need; often in rather urgent/emergency situations.  They help with food, clothing, lodging, and getting them directed to a shelter and or other organizations that can provide more on going assistance.  If, I understand this situation properly, they can be the first line of operations.

I wanted to share this lovely hand written thank you from Ruth Beckman.  She indicates the donations went to multiple areas of need.  Some again, reaching "beyond" just our city, our county of Franklin; but on into Southern Ohio.  It is through your constant and continued support that we're able to reach so many people in need.

Please know what a difference you all make.

March will focus on afghans and rain poncho's.  In addition to the afghan I assemble (or get help assembling) from your donated squares you can knit and or crochet completed afghans.  You can also make a quilt.  Guideline for colors and size etc can be found in the

  1. Thank you Sandy for posting the letter. It always makes me wish I could knit faster, so I could get more items sent out. But I just remember the power of one. One item from everyone equals lots!

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?
