Do you feel that in the air?

It's starting to get a little cool outside! While most of us are far from having to turn on our heaters and are still protected in our warm houses, let's remember that there are many out there who are not so lucky! Those who are currently without housing feel the affects of the changing weather way more than any of us.

Let's get our hooks and needles out and start making some hats and scarves for those in our area who need them the most!

At this time, we are currently accepting completed hats of all sizes, scarves, mittens and blankets.
The donated items will be split into three different places. A local church run clothes closet, a local elementary school with a high poverty rate and the local childrens hospital!

If you need me to come pick up your items send an email or leave a comment.

We will be meeting at Central Christian Church, 1315 E Spring St, New Albany, In 47150 from 6-8 on the following Sundays: October 4, 18th, November 1, 15, 29th December 13th and 27th.

Thanks for all your help and feel free to pass this information to anyone who might be interested!
