Charity report from March 2021 (also some extra stuff I might want to put back)

 

Since our last report we have donated 61 items to 2 charities.

This includes 23 adult hats, 3 scarves, 4 lap blankets, 1 pair of baby booties, 5 baby blankets, 25 baby hats which gives us a year to date total of 237 items.


There are still plenty of scarf kits from Especially Handmade for You, under the table on my porch. Come by and pick up kits or drop off completed scarves at your convenience.


If you have completed your lap blanket for the Mary Crest Manor Nursing Home Project please get it to Carol Hosely ASAP. She has plenty more kits available.

Thank you to you the members for donating such high quality items – well made, nicely finished, laundered if needed and just ready to use. A credit to the guild.  We now have tags with the guild logo that you can use to tag the items you make for donation.  Feel free to add a few handwritten words of inspiration and first name of the maker.   I have the tags available on request, see me at the meeting   


Although many charities are closed please keep stockpiling your beautiful creations. I will let you know when Yarn Angels are having their next parking lot donation night. It will probably be in the Fall. They collect handmade items for many charities including veterans. This may be another option for us if you are having difficulty getting your items to the charity of your choice.


Remember to let me know what you have made for charity so it can be included in the report. Right now, the easiest way is to post it on Ravelry on the charity donations thread.


Thank you
