Thank you knitters!
Unfortunately, after some great years of connecting crafters with local charities, it is time to wind down operations at Knit for Boston. Please see details on our latest blog post. Final donations will be accepted until August 31, 2013.
Donations Accepted Until 8/31/13
In February 2010, we linked up with Quincy-based program Cradles to Crayons. C to C has made it their mission to help the more than 100,000 children who experience poverty every year in the commonwealth by supplying them with the resources they need to feel safe, warm, and valued. We posted a sweater pattern to kick off this partnership, but keep in mind C to C accepts any knitwear a child could use (think: hats, scarves, mittens, etc.). There’s no projected end date on this project, so feel free to send in your donations all year long.
Items for the Homeless
We wrapped up a campaign in February 2010 during which we collected items for our first recipient program, Friends of Boston’s Homeless. While our official February blitz has concluded, FOBH collects items all year long, so please send along hats, scarves, mittens, sweaters, socks, etc. and we’ll pass them along to FOBH (yes, even in July).
