Personal Care Donations for Homeless

WOW...look at the volume of this donation of personal care items!  There were many zip lock bags full of tooth brushes, toothpaste, floss, hair spray, shampoo, conditioner, soap, lotion, shaving cream.  There were even a few small sewing kits.  All of this bounty comes from saving samples you get in the mail, toiletries from hotel rooms and small containers of stuff you buy.  Personal care items are needed all year long by our homeless friends who live out in the elements, as well as those that get a night at a shelter.  They're also used and appreciated by those that transition from shelter living to a more permanent housing situation, as they are often added to the welcome home packs to help folks get started.

This donation comes from one of very best friends, Jane C.  If you've heard me mentioned being out of town for a week with the girls....Jane would be one of the "girls".  We've been marvelous friends for over 45 years!

Thank you Jane, keep up the good work.  Lots of folks will benefit from this donation.

HATS:  276
SCARVES (Gators, Infinity Scarves)  211
SOCKS: 120 
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.

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?
