Personal Care Items and Crocheted Cotton Cloths Help Ohio's Homeless



Thank you Marjorie M for another fantastic and thoughtful donation.  Lots of always needed personal care items, socks...can't get too many of those, and crocheted cotton washcloths definitely a great item.  We use those cotton washcloths in a variety of ways.

When folks first come to shelters they often have nothing and so personal care items and a nice washcloth to shower can really mean alot.  As some live in shelter housing the cloths can be used both for baths, and doing dishes.  When folks transition from shelter to permanent housing, those washcloths are used again in welcome home packs....AND our men and women living outdoors are always appreciative of them too.  Our friend Rae makes packs for them, packs they can take on the go; as they often have to.

Many thanks Marjorie, we surely appreciate your on going support of Ohio's Homeless and others in need.

  2. Thanks Sally. You are very kind. I am able to provide the basics. Not much good at the fancy stuff, but so appreciate the oppurtunity to help out when needed. Like the idea of a shave and a new pair of sox. It is 31 in Minnesota this morning with 2 inches of slush on the ground. Prayers for the homless..

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?
