Finally.........A box to send, and one more on the way.

We have a box I am sending out in the morning to the Bridge and Beyond,  It has 50 hats and some travel containers so people can carry around some necessities if they choose. This picture is of 29 scarves mostly double strand crocheted, some single strand. 5 double strand hats and a pair of booties. Its just a start and as soon as they are washed they will be on their way as well. I know many will stay a little bit warmer, and hopefully know in their hearts that someone does care. Just an update......I approached My college's Social Work student council about collecting food and items for the homeless. There is a City Mission in Huntington, West Virginia that my mother and I also try to help and I pleaded with them that since it is getting colder outside, if we can help the mission with food items and possibly socks, gloves, and hats. More will stay warmer as the mission doesn't have room for all and some are on the streets. From what I understand we will begin collecting non-perishable food items in November first of December. I am excited to see others willing to help as well. The great thing is they are not just considering helping during the holidays but in January and February when others forget about doing good. It makes me proud to be a member of the college. I will be crocheting more scarves and saving my money for more hats. Please keep active in your area and if you can, help other areas too. In these times with so many losing their jobs we need to remember that it could be our family out there on the street. If you can't crochet, donate money, food, socks, anything others need to stay warm. I also again want to apologize for not posting as often as I should but, being a single parent, and going back to school, is a hard undertaking at 39. I know I just told my age,  LOL. Oh well. I am honored to be able to help others in any way possible and hope to continue, and to keep encouraging others to do so as well.

  1. So nicely said Cindy. I'm glad you were able to get others there involved. This is not an easy problem to solve and no area of the country is protected from it. Many thanks for your support, for spreading the word not only about our need...but encouraging people to get involved in their areas as well. Could I ask you to add the link to Bridge and Beyond in your post?
