Happy Sunday one and all, there is no official A-Z post required on Sunday. It's suppose to be a day off, however I've tried to keep the momentum going and have posted all the Sunday's in April, hoping for extra coverage for Bridge and Beyond.
For those who may be here the first time, Welcome. One of the items we make (Knit/crochet) and donate here on Bridge and Beyond is afghans. There are given as a special Welcome Home Gift to families when they transition from shelter living to their permanent housing situation. Truly something to celebrate. We celebrate with them, congratulate them and wish them well for the future with our gifts of homemade afghans.
Again many thanks Sarah!
Mittens/Gloves/Wrist Warmers: 45
Rain Poncho's: 53
Cotton Washcloths: 109
Misc: items like personal care and things don't fit into above categories aren't counted
**If you missed any of the A-Z Challenge posts, please please do stop and read them. My hope is to further educate people about what it's like to be homeless, to better understand the nature of this sad situation. The more we know, the better chance we have of helping. I also desperately want to dispel the notion that it couldn't happen to you and your loved ones.
