Knitter - Mittens, Hats, Blankets
Seeking Knitters to Make Mittens, Hats, and Blankets!
Last year, our wonderful Warm Hearts Warm Hands knitters and sewers made more than 1,500 beautiful, warm, hand-made items that were distributed throughout Addison County. Warm hats and mittens were given to local elementary and pre-school children, lap robes and walker bags were provided to nursing home residents, and adorable little hats, booties and baby blankets were delivered to Porter Medical Center to give to parents of newborns. We have plenty of patterns and lots of colorful yarn, so please give us a call at 388-7044 if you would like to volunteer your time as a knitter for a good cause. Thank you!

RSVP is national volunteer management services which offer individuals age 55 and up the opportunity to share their experience, skills and time by volunteering for local non-profit organizations.
RSVP recruits, places and supports its volunteers, providing them with meaningful opportunities to contribute to their community. Addison County's non-profits' needs are met in critical areas such as human service, health, state and local government, education, literacy and the arts. RSVP also oversees several signature programs that benefit local residents. These include free Bone Builders osteoporosis prevention classes; the Green Mountain Foster Grandparent Program, which places volunteers in our schools; the Warm Hearts Warm Hands Initiative which distributes handmade items to local schools, nursing homes, social service agencies and hospitals; and the RSVP Tax Program which provides free tax services to low income residents. These programs allow Addison County residents to stay healthy, financially stable, and successfully age in place.
