Project #19: Michigan, Salvation Knitters

This month, we are working to help Salvation Knitters of Michigan. The project runs May 15 to June 15, 2011.

Salvation Knitters helps new moms and babies in need. They need knitted and crocheted items to donate to expectant moms and their babies through the Salvation Army’s Family Services program.  Further information about the programs is provided by the Salvation Army and Booth family Services

Desired Items include blankets, hats, booties, socks and other layette items for babies, and comfort shawls which may also serve as nursing blankets for the new moms. They do not require the use of specific fibers or patterns. Use your stash yarn or any pattern or fiber you select. 

Currently, the donations go to a residential facility in Grand Rapids.  Items should be mailed to: Salvation Knitters 11098 56th Ave Allendale MI 49401.

 Please don’t forget to tag each item with the Sharing Our Gifts tag, or a tag of your choice that says Sharing Our Gifts. Happy creating!
