Crocheted Hats and Scarves help Homeless


Thank you Patty C for this wonderful donation of crocheted hats to warm Ohio's Homeless.  What a nice variety of sizes and colors she's included in her crocheted donation.  She's also included 3 crocheted scarves.

Hats and scarves are used here in Ohio probably 11 months out of 12.  Even in the hot summer months, nights can be cool and  damp and a scarf and hat can truly make a person more comfortable, when living out in the elements.  Homeless are often more cold than we are, even during warmer months, because their nutrition isn't good, and food is fuel that helps warm the body.  So please, even as you see things warm up a bit folks....keep up your needle work.  Remember, we here at Bridge and Beyond knit and crochet and donate all year long, not just when it's nasty out.

Thank you for all you do, and please keep up the good work.

**Would the person who donated red and gray socks, knitted hat and scarf please make contact.  You can email me at sandycrochet@gmail.com, leave a comment here on the blog, and or leave a note using the contact form here on the blog.**

**We started the year with the number of items we had donated last year, 2016; and will subtract our donations from that.  Using the end number for 2016 as the goal for the each item.  So, as the year continues you will see numbers decrease.  Our goal is to meet and surpass the number of items donated last year.**

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?
