I received a call yesterday from the Director of Sexual Assault Victim Advocacy at the YWCA. She called because they have given out almost all the scarves we have delivered and she wanted to know if we had more ready that they could have.
She met me today to pick up the ones we had ready. You may be wondering… do we really need scarves in the summer? Unfortunately, yes –she told me that they have been very busy recently, meeting survivors and handing out scarves as they begin a journey of healing.
Even though it may be 100+ degrees outside, a hospital room can feel ice cold, and having a handmade gift that carries a note letting you know you’re not alone helps just a tiny bit at a really tough time.
So, if you can knit or crochet, we need you! The need is great and ongoing, please join us.
