  1. Thanks Yvonne. Good donation through the summer when people are on vacation and looking for something to send that does not require sitting for hours crocheting warm hats and scarves although those are really needed all year too. Lots of good items here that will be much appreciated.Our donations seem to drop through the summer and this would be a good thing to remember to send at that time. We are on vacation , but the homeless are not and are still there needing our help. GOD BLESS THE HOMELESS marj in minnesota

    1. Nicely said Marj, we're on vacation but the homeless certainly are not. Thank you for your loving supportive comments, so much appreciated.

  2. That is a great thoughtful donation!


  3. Very nice donation Yvonne. You gave something for the men as well as women.

  4. This is so special that you receive these donations. Does anyone ever donate can openers and cans of food? Just wondering


PLEASE...Leave your name and URL of your blog, NOT Google+ Profile. I'm can't return the favor of a blog visit if you leave Google+ !!!

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?
