Knitted Donations for Homeless

Thank you Linda W. from Ohio for this thoughtful donation of knitted hats and slippers for our cold, homeless and those in need here in central Ohio.  Linda has also included personal items, which are always needed and appreciated by those living under the bridges, as well as those in the shelters.  Special thanks for taking time to add size tags to your hats.  

As of the writing of this scheduled post it's 20 degrees here in central Ohio, feels like 11.  And we're hopeful if the sun comes out today (as promised), we'll manage to get this snowfall melted........before it snows again tomorrow.  Would be nice to at least get a fresh start and not have snow piled on snow.  Spring is "officially" 31 days and 6 hours away; though we'll continue to have about 2 more months of cold weather here or more.  Frost is a danger until after Memorial Day, so please don't slow down with the knitting, crocheting and donating folks...the cold homeless are still very much in need.

Reminders:
**Please remember to tag all hats with size, as well as mittens and slippers**
***Please remember to avoid white, tan, beige and light colors that easily show dirt***
****Please remember to include a note with your name and email addy with your donations****

2014 Donations:
Hats: 138+6=142
Scarves:62
Socks: 6
Afghans: 9
Slippers: 17+3=20
Rain Ponchos: 
Mitten: 7
Cotton Washcloths: 56
Shawls, Sweaters, Vests, Poncho's, Skirts etc. : 

Today is March 1st, our focus for the month of March and April will be on Men and their needs.  Men need dark, solid, sturdy hats, scarves, mittens, and slippers; as well as store bought socks and personal care items.

All donations regardless of size and number are valued. All donations are appreciated. The Power of One is awesome, and when we work together The Power of One becomes The Power of Many.

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?
