First Donation of 2016 for Ohio's Homeless

 Thank you Nikki S, Deb D, Linda O, and Jason D for this awesome donation to start off our new year.  Nikki and Deb donated crocheted headbands, scares, cowls, hats, a shrug and a childs afghan.  Look at the nice variety.  Please click the picture so you can see all the goodies these fine folks put together.   Nikki has donated previously, but she reached out to some of her friends and got them involved so Deb, Linda and Jason are all new helping hands!  Welcome and thank you for joining Nikki in her quest to help Bridge and Beyond.
Wonderful personal care items were donated by Nikki, Linda and Jason.  AND Nikki and Deb included yarn.

The combination of everything in this donation will serve many people.  The sanitary napkins is something that's always in short supply at the various shelters.  Soap, deodorant, toothpaste and toothbrushes  round out the personal care items.

I'm going to try something a little different with keeping our stats.  I'm listing our end numbers from 2015 and will subtract our current number as means of keeping our goal in front of us.  I'll show the goal number in Red.  Let's strive not match last years numbers, but.........work towards even more.  Thank you for all you do.

Hats: 468-4=464
Mittens/Gloves/Wrist Warmers: 123
Slippers: 105
Rain Poncho's:  105
Cotton Washcloths: 454
Afghans: 24-1=23
Socks: 201
Cowls/Hoody Combo's, headbands: 18-6=12

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?
