500 SCARVES FOR NEEDY FAMILIES FOR THE HOLIDAYS

On November 28th I came up with the idea that I wanted to do something special for the Holidays this year and came up with the idea of making scarves. I can crochet and thought this might be something that people would need and enjoy for the Holidays.  Fortunately our local newspaper picked up on what I was doing and ran an article about it in the paper.  Well, you should have seen the community response.  It was absolutely wonderful. We received loads of yarn and many, many people knitted or crocheted or purchased a scarf to add to the donation. By Dec. 20th I had 318 scarves.  I was very impressed and pleased at how the community came together and on such short notice made or donated this many scarves.  It was such a wonderful feeling to do something good for the community and have so many people of the community join in. We donated the scarves to The Salvation Army and Womens Resources and The Shepherds House.  I plan on doing it again next year. And the best part is that the donations are still arriving. So I'm already started for next year. It is great!
