Crocheted Donation From Malmstrom Air Force Base Helps Ohio's Homeless

Thank you Sheena Y at Malmstrom AirForce Base.  Sheena has a group on base called The Crochet Club and they've gotten together and crochet hats, scarves, and slippers.  I don't know how many folks are involved in the Crochet Club or their names; but I can certainly see the size of their caring hearts with this thoughtful donation for Ohio's Homeless.

Notice the items made with red and gray for Buckeyes!  Also, click to enlarge and look at the cute hat on the far right lower corner.  How cute is that.  Some child is going to be really really excited.

Malmstrom Air Force is located in Great Falls, Cascade County, Montana.  It was built in 1941 and is named after Colonel Einar Axel Malmstrom, a World War II POW.

Nice work Crochet Club, and hope to see you here often on Bridge and Beyond.

Hats:      192 -18 = 174
Scarves:   113 -4 =109
Mittens/Gloves/Wrist Warmers:  75
Slippers: 77 -5 =72
Rain Poncho's:   +106
Cotton Washcloths:  316
Afghans:    12
Socks:   184
Cowls/Hoody Combo's, headbands:   8
Shawls and shrugs, ponchos, sweaters & vests etc 0
Misc: items like personal care, headbands etc and things don't fit into above categories aren't counted.

Please note the category of shawl, shrugs, ponchos etc has reached our little goal, same as last year of 1.........but please please please.........don't let that stop you from making more of these items.  Likewise note we've definitely reached our goal for rain poncho's.  Rain ponchos's serve many purposes so we will probably still need some....down the line, but not for awhile.

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?
