We need Knitters and Crocheters!
We need Yarn!
♥We make "comfort" scarves and distribute them to shelters for abused women.
♥We tie each scarf with a ribbon and provide a note signed by the giver. Often this is the first gift ever received by the recipient.
♥In 2016 alone, we made 11,975 scarves, 1800 hats, plus 300 baby items
and shipped to 56 shelters for abused women in Southern and Central
California. And, with our UPS shipping donation, we were able to ship to
even more shelters in Northern California.
♥Since we started in October 2008, we have distributed over 92,000 scarves and 3000 hats (plus baby items), but we have barely scratched the
surface of the need.
♥Please help us by knitting or crocheting “comfort scarves.” We supply free yarn!
