This project will run from November 15 - December 15, 2012.
There are two charities that are working together this fall/winter. They are supporting the local non-sectarian homeless shelter, which is mainly adult men and women. Caps/hats, scarves and mittens are the most requested as well as socks. The second charity is a Domestic Violence/Women’s shelter, where children and teens are the ones in the most need. Mittens, scarves, and hats are the main requests, but they are happy to take washcloths, shawls, anything that would help someone, “with very little self esteem, confidence, or happiness” in their life. (Quotation from the director). Modesto has extremely high unemployment, and is one of the lowest income areas in the state of California.
This project has ended. If you would still like to donate, please email me for address information.
