There are two groups collecting handknit items in Salem that have asked us to help spread the word.
1) The Salem Association of Realtors (S.A.R.) Hosts an event to benefit 150 underprivileged elementary school kids. They are looking for 150 scarves (knit or crochet) for the kids. If you can help contact Judy Woods at (503) 364-3387. Their event is in mid-December.
2) We have a drop-off box here at the shop for an upcoming Knit Well Sale to be held on the 12th and 13th of this month at the hospital, Salem Health building C. The proceed from the sale will go to the Salem Cancer Institute and the 2015 Relay for Life.
We know this is very short notice but if you have anything to donate bring it on down or call Judy from the S.A.R. Thanks!
