Rain Poncho's and Socks aid the Homeless

These socks were previously donated, but I like to have pictures whenever possible with our posts.  Socks are needed primarily for men, both those living out in the elements and those in temporary housing.  Cold wet feet make a person miserable.  Socks, store bought is an item non knitters and crocheters can donate to be involved......to help the homeless.

If you've missed the last 2 posts, please scroll back.  One post compared numbers of donations for mittens, and the other slippers.

Using the same date March 26th for all these reflections.  In 2012 we had donated 102 pairs of socks, in 2013 120 pairs...nice bump and thus far this year only 49 pairs.  If you're able we'ld love to bump up those numbers.  If you have friends who'd like to help but don't knit or crochet, please make the suggestion.

Rain poncho's, another item non knitters and crocheters can donate.  Small and lightweight, but such a good item particularly for those living out in the elements.  Also come in hand for those waiting for buses which many of our folks living in temporary shelters do as their job searching or getting job training to get back on the feet.

In 2012 by March 26th 2 poncho's were donated, same number for the following year 2013, and thus far this year we've donated 5.


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.

  1. I don't like to see the low numbers. I wonder if paying higher postage is the cause donations are down. Or maybe people don't realize the need is so great.

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?
