Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
God has placed a passion on my heart. So many people are without and in need of warm clothes during the winter months. I love to knit and crochet. I have a desire to knit and crochet hats and scarves and distribute the finished products to various charities. I would love to bring people together in order to make beautiful hats and scarves for people in need. There are so many different charities that are in need. If we work together and make things to donate we can fill so many needs. I know everyone is not able to knit and crochet, however, we can also accept donations of yarn to be distributed to knitters and crocheters. We also accept monetary donations to be used to purchase yarn.
Knitting and Crocheting for Charity is a non-profit organization. I learned how to knit in 2013 and crochet in 2014. I was discussing with some friends about what do they do with their finished projects. I was told that most people give there stuff away to friends and/or family and/or sell them. I felt led to start Knitting and Crocheting for Charity in November 2013.
I came up with the idea that why not donate these items to charity. I had a few friends that told me they loved the idea and wanted to help. Some people approached me that they would love to help, but the do not know how to knit or crochet. I told them they could always donate yarn or money for yarn. Most would buy yarn on clearance to give to me and I would meet with the volunteers when they finished projects. I took the finished products to donate and give them more yarn so they could continue to knit or crochet. Projects include hats, scarves, ear warmers, hat/scarf sets, and cowls. They make the finished projects for men, women, and children in need.
