Project 9: "Warm Hugs"

We are going to try something that we've never done before!  Run two projects at the same time! 

We are currently working on Project 8: "A Little Help", by making walker bags for seniors.  That project ends on November 15th. HAS ENDED.   Please keep working on those, as we begin the next one.  Contact us by email or Facebook and we will make arrangements to collect them.  As soon as they are delivered, we will post pictures.  Thank you so much!

Now, about our next project:  Originally we weren't planning another project before the end of the year, but when we realized that our local food bank didn't just hand out food, but also provided warm clothes, blankets, hats and scarves during the colder months, well...we just couldn't ignore it. We know that you will feel the same way.

Troubled times can happen suddenly in anyone's life.  It's a fearful thing to go to your cupboard and not have enough food to offer to your hungry children.  That's where Twin Lakes Food Bank fills in the gap for hurting people during those times.  They have been serving the community for over 25 years by offering not only food, but clothing, shoes, coats, blankets and infant items year round.  

We want to help out with a few of those items, by providing warm hats and scarves.  Project 9: Warm Hugs", will do just that.  This is an easy no-sew project for anyone!  Crochet?  Perfect  Knit? Great!  Sew?  You can do that too!  NO SEW FLEECE is perfect for those of you who do none of these!  Just measure and cut...and you are good to go! 

Need ideas?   HERE are a few for crocheted hats, and HERE are some for fleece hats.   You can even purchase knit hats and embellish them (as to keep within our crafty-ness).

For scarf ideas, check out THIS web site. 

We need hats and scarves for men, women, teens and children.  So, get those creative minds and hands working and lets provide some "warm hugs" this winter. 

Deadline is December 5th.  DECEMBER 10th

Twin Lakes Food Bank served over 35,000 people last year, and approximately half of those were children.  They hold several special events each year that also serve people in need.  Easter dinners/baskets, Back to School backpacks (filled with supplies, socks, shoes, and nutritious breakfast items), Thanksgiving turkey dinners and Christmas baskets with dinner and gifts for children.  For more information about Twin Lakes, or other ways you can help, visit their web page.
