HATS & SCARVES!
Our first group of people we are helping are KIDS, and you know I have a H U G E heart for them, especially those in terrible situations, like abuse or neglect. So, we are going north again to the state of Oregon and partner with the Child Welfare Program, by providing hats and scarves (also, gloves and mittens if you are able) to these kids for their Christmas Celebration.
The agencies (Child Welfare Program) job is to assess children's safety when allegations of abuse and neglect are brought to their attention from the community. There are times when children are not able to safely stay at home. Each year the office puts together a holiday celebration for the youth in foster care so they have an opportunity to celebrate with family.
We were contacted by Sarah, who works for the State of Oregon and volunteers at Sparks of Hope...I couldn't say no.
So...let's get started!
Scarves can be any type, crochet, knit, no-sew fleece, sewn, anything! Kids, men and women are all in need, so get creative and have fun with this.
When you are finished, please send us an email, leave a message on our Facebook page or contact me directly and I will make arrangements to collect them. Thank you so much. ~~Robyne
Deadline: November 10th.
