Socks Such an Important Donation for Homeless





Thank you Sarah S for this thoughtful donation of personal care items, socks,hats, and an awesome afghan!  What a generous donation.  Every item needed and greatly appreciated.  LOVE the nice dark colors for the hats and that you took time to tag with them size.  Extra thank you for that.

Sarah has been a long time supporter of cause here on Bridge and Beyond to help Ohio's homeless.  Summer has come and gone and fall is upon us.  Nights here in CentralOhio are damp and cold and so warm items are indeed needed by all the shelters and by those living in the elements.

Thank you Sarah and please keep up the good work!

Hats:     103-6=97

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.

  2. Very nice donation Sarah S. The hats are a good color for the homeless and they look very warm. The socks and personal care items are a wonderful idea! The afghan will sure keep someone warm in the cold weather that is coming.

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?
