I started knitting when I was ten from her teachings, I knit for my children and grandchildren. Now I would like to take her gift, and ask others to take some knitting/crocheting time, to help those in need.
If you are willing to make knitted and/or crocheted items, I will provide yarn to you. The yarn is donated from various sources. I will also sew a label to the knitted item that reads "Theresa's Gift, made for you by _____" Your name will be written on the label.
If you would like to donate yarn for this great cause, that would be terrific.
Please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in participating in this cause.
Our knitted/crocheted gifts will be donated to the Elizabeth Fry Society in Edmonton, Alberta. The Elizabeth Fry Society is a non-profit agency that helps women who are struggling. They may be transient, on the street, out of prison, etc. Sometimes they have nothing warm to wear in the winter. Our items of hats, scarves, mittens will be sent to their agency to hand out to the women as needed.
The other agency this community supports is The Nest in Calgary, Alberta. It is a home for new mom's and their babies. The agency houses and provides support to young moms in need.
Please consider a contribution to these amazing agencies. Thank you!
