Today I received a letter from my daughter's school that they are in need of coat, hat, mitten/glove, and scarf donations. With the way the economy is so screwed up right now, there are a lot of kids whose parents can't afford to buy winter necessities and they're asking families for these donations (even my parents had to buy winter coats for my kids this year).
While I can't afford to buy any new items (and my kids old coats are so worn out they're in no shape for donating), I am knitting up some hats from my stash yarn to donate to the school.
I realize this is very short notice, but as I said, I just received the letter today, and I realize a lot of us probably have a bunch of Christmas knitting to cram in (I know I do! lol), but, if anyone has any spare time to knit up a pair of mittens or a scarf or something, I'd surely appreciate it. They need all donations on or before the 19th of December.
If you have the time and would like to donate, please PM me for shipping info.
