Delivery to Homeless Families Foundation



Sharing a cute post with you all, knowing it will have you nodding your head, just as it did me when I first saw it on Facebook.

Folks, it's taken me a full week to catch up on opening, documenting, and photographing all your wonderful donations that came while I was away.  I focused on getting the boxes opened, items counted, and bagged in order to make a delivery today to Homeless Families Foundation.  My car was truly full.  The backseat and the trunk.  The good folks there helped me make multiple trips to and from the car and were most excited and appreciative of all your labors, your talent, and your big hearts.  To say our items were well received would be an understatement.  The nights have turned quite cool and so getting those warm hats, scarves,slippers, and mittens delivered was a top priority.   Even though the wonderful donations haven't yet been posted here to the blog they have been delivered and will soon be providing relief to those in need' as well as the personal care items, socks, cotton washcloths, and of course The Afghans!

Thank you all for making these important deliveries possible.

Stay tuned for blog post with donations from: Sandie P, Emily K, Damaris, Sandra R, Nikki S, Christina D, Susie J, and Mary H.

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?
