On the business card are 3 names listed: Donna, Sandra & Dee. I don't know if these ladies are the organizers and others are involved, but that's, I believe, my understanding. Delores M contacted me and indicated her community had been crocheting for over a year and liked to send their items out to help others. We're thrilled you and your community of caring crocheters found us here at Bridge and Beyond. Cotton Wash clothes are used in a variety of ways. Our folks living out in the elements love them and use them both for dish cloths and body cloths. The folks in the shelters the same. Often these are put in welcome home packs when folks transition from shelter living to a more permanent housing situation.
Thank you ladies from The First Pentecostal Church in Neptune, NJ. We appreciate your hard work and dedication to helping others.
Please keep up the good work. We hope to see you here again on Bridge and Beyond.
With this donation, please notice we have surpassed our donation total for washcloths from last year! Isn't that wonderful news. Does that mean you shouldn't make more cotton washcloths, no; they are always needed. However it might mean, if you don't know what you want to make, you might steer towards hats, or scarves or mittens, or slippers; since we're still well behind last years totals on those items.
SCARVES (Gators, Infinity Scarves) 211
RAIN PONCHOS: 205
COTTON WASHCLOTHS: 28-72= +44
Misc, Ponchos, shawls, headbands etc aren't counted but very much appreciated.
**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.
