Winter Warmth Challenge!

i Nov 23rd No Comments by
With winter soon to be upons us, Connie Kyek, her husband, Walter and Daniel Dery, a friend,  have knitted well over 100 hats and headbands in various sizes.  They have donated them for our clients staying at In From the Cold Emergency Shelter and Lily’s Place Family Shelter as well as any clients in need.  She has made a few extras for sale which will help offset the costs of the high-quality yarn she uses for the hats.

As her talents are specifically in knitting hats, she is challenging  to others to create and donate mitts and socks.  If you don’t happen to have the talent to knit, we would welcome donations of new socks and mitts/gloves.

Thanks, Connie for seeing the need and reaching out to solve it!

Donations can be dropped off at our Administration office located at 540 Montreal Streeet between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday.
