As we gear up for Fall, now that summer's past we're reminded that homeless people do best in darker colors. They don't have means to do laundry so darker colors work well to not show the dirt...AND darker colors help them not call attention to themselves. Bright, bold, and pastels aren't as suitable for our friends living in the elements.
Many thanks Mary for your support, hope to see you here often on Bridge and Beyond, as we work to warm Ohio's Homeless.
Please keep up the good work!

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.
