WINTER WOOLLIES RESULTS
Aaaaand the results are in . . . . our disbursement numbers for this year are down quite significantly from last year (which is really good!) but the numbers of needy children are up, also quite significantly (which is not good).
Our total disbursement on Dec 7th was
There will be more requests coming in as the need arises over the coming winter months so the numbers will continue to rise but there shouldn't be a huge leap.
Our thanks to our volunteers who provided us with such an abundance of inventory that we were able to fill all our requests and still have enough left over to service anything that should come up. Our thanks too to all those who so generously answered our plea for mittens and gloves; every facility or school who requested mitts had both their needs and their wish lists fulfilled. That is so impressive when you consider the short time in which it all came together.
We'll be taking a break until the New Year and invite anyone interested to join us then, as the cycle starts once again. You don't need to know how to knit or sew, crochet or stitch, although, if you'd like to learn, we can teach you, but we also need "worker bees" who are willing to help at Hot Dog Sales or other fundraisers, those who are willing to untangle yarn or press fabric, or pack and distribute Winter Woollies!
If you'd like to receive our Newsletter, please PM your email address to us and we'll add you to our mailing list.
Thank you all.
