Knitted Cotton Washcloths, many purposes!

Thank you Melinda G, our newest pair of helping hands for this thoughtful donation of knitted cotton washcloths.  Melinda hails from Las Vegas.  Not sure we've had a donation from there before?  Hard to remember, but I don't think so.  Welcome to our group, we're thrilled to have you join us here on Bridge and Beyond.

These cotton washcloths have so many uses for our friends, the homeless.  When folks spend time on the street, their skin is often easily irritated and cotton (knit or crocheted) washcloths are soothing, much nicer than store bought rough cotton washcloths.  Our folks also use them when they get a night in the shelter and get to shower.  Additionally, they are put in our welcome home packs when folks transition from shelter living to their permanent home...They can be used both as washcloths and dishcloths.

Many thanks for this nice assortment of colors, some suitable for men, others for women.  Please keep up the good work, Melinda.  We hope to see you here often on Bridge and Beyond.

**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?
