It IS the season. Yesterday we packed boxes and today we packed more boxes and shipped. Amazing. We sent 2,260 comfort scarves and 270 hats (kids and adult) to 66 shelters for abused and homeless women. And we’re not done. Several shelters replied too late to be included in today’s shipping. We will send to them after Thanksgiving.
How did we accomplish so much? You know the answer: TOGETHER. No one job, no one person is more important than another to get the scarves to the shelters. We’re an interlocking network of committed volunteers who want to help abuse survivors and their children. Some of us are measurers, others are winders, our group includes wrappers, knitters, yarn and $$ donors, scarf repairers, gift tag printers, hole punchers, box openers, shippers and many more activities that make our project hum along. Each and every one of us offers something special and valuable. Our whole is greater than the sum of our parts. You know what you contribute. You know how valuable your contribution is. So go ahead. Give yourself a big pat on the back. You’re the greatest!!!! Thank you so much.
