Socks, Scarves, and Stuff make good Donations

 So many words that start with the letter S and make good donations for our homeless friends.  SOCKS!  Socks, white, gray, black.......colors matter not, but socks are an item needed all year long.  Store bought vs hand made socks can make a huge difference is someone's comfort, and their health.  Remember anyone living out in the elements has to content with limited if any ability to do laundry and therefore a clean dry pair of socks is like heaven to them.  Also think how miserable we all are if our feet are wet and cold.  This is a problem spring, summer, winter or fall.  Men and women who live out in the elements need socks, as do those with nights here and there in shelters.  Socks are also something people who don't knit or crochet can donate.

Scarves.......men, women, and children need scarves.  Not babies or toddlers, but school age........teens etc are in need of scarves.  Scarves can be knitted or crocheted.  They need to be long enough to wrap around as in the pictures below.  Please review the guidelines int he scarf tab for information about size, colors, and fibers.  It's important our scarves meet the needs of those we serve.  No white, no lacy open stitches, and no novelty yarn please.  They aren't practical for those trying to stay warm, those without ability to do laundry.  



If you have questions, please sing out by sending me an email or by using the contact option in the right sidebar of this blog.

Shampoo is another S word that makes for a good donation.  Again, an item that non crafters can donate.  You can purchase shampoo, and or save shampoo from your travels to donate.

Will be catching up with donations that were delivered while I was out of town over the next few days folks, so please pop in often.  Then I will resume The ABC posting with the letter T.

**The counts on our progress bars are current, the percentages not quite. I'll not be figure the percentages with each update of numbers, but will be updating again next at least by the 20th. I have in fact made a reminder not on my cell phone for the 20th of each month to do percentages. If we're at a milestone, or I just have extra time I may do it more often...but certainly at that scheduled time.

** 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.

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?
