After Christmas giving-anyone? : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread

Good morning all- I am looking for a few or many good hearts! Hope it's ok to ask and that no one gets mad, I'm just trying to do my part to help this crazy world. I am the AV (area volunteer) for our state project. I collect hand made (or store bought) items for our homeless shelter in Lincoln. This is a family homeless shelter and they take only families. Sad to say they had over 600 families served last year and she told me it would be more for 2000. I collect blankets, quilts, scarves, hats, mitten, gloves, socks, infant items and a new request from them for small toys. My daughter and I are starting again (we made a big delivery in DEC.) I would like to know if anyone would like to make/send 6" or 8" crochet or quilt squares, we will but them together and make as many twin and quilt things as we can. I would surely take completed items but thought this might be easier to ask for and get people to do. If you want more info please ask and I'l happily answer. You can check out the sight for the run down on the project-it was started by Alan Osmond's organization. ttp:// Thanks and GODS BLESSINGS TO YOU ALL, Margie

Hi Margie, I think that is a wonderful project you are doing. Count me in on making the squares and also I have some crocheted scarves. Please email me and let me know where I can send the squares when I finish them. Thanks and God Bless! Carla

Count me in to. Have lots of yarn bits to use up [ spinner] and I like to do granny squares.

What does it mean when you say "they only take families"?
