Knitted and Crocheting and Keeping Homeless Warm

Thank you Sue S for this thoughtful donation.  We have some personal care items, some cotton knitted washcloths, knitted and crocheted scarves and scarves and headbands.........AND a rain poncho!  Whew...you've been busy.  Folks click to enlarge to see details (you know you can always do that here on the blog), did you see something new and unique in this donation?  Sunglasses!  What a great idea, something truly I have never thought of.  Odd to, since I wear sunglasses all year long.  But, truly I never thought about that as a good item to donate.  Well done! 

Folks, it's Spring; but we're still having some very cool nights.  As we speak, (well type) I'm sitting here with a heavy sweater on and a lapghan on my lap...so, our homeless friends are still very much in need of us keeping our hooks and needles busy.

Special thanks Sue, for tagging your hats with size.  I encourage everyone to do that.  It helps us get the donation to the right group; and saves lots of time with the volunteers who work with those in the elements, as well as those in the shelters.

Thank you Sue for your long standing support of Bridge and Beyond, and please keep up the good work.

2016 Donations:
HATS: 374-3=371
SCARVES (Gators, Infinity Scarves)289-2=287
RAIN PONCHOS: 206-1=205
SOCKS: 123

**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?
