The Warm Winter Project is once again filling boxes with warm wearables for needy folks in Wayne County. In 2009, WWP delivered 185 items to local charitable organizations benefiting those in need, and more area groups have been added for 2010. If you knit, crochet, or sew fleece into mittens, hats, scarves or afghans, you can help keep a needy child or adult warmer this winter! WWP also accepts donations of full and partial skeins of yarn, CLEAN used warm clothing, gloves, blankets, towels and coats IN GOOD CONDITION. Please, no stains, tears, broken zippers, etc. If you wish to donate new items, socks, underwear, towels, and disposable diapers are always appreciated. Veterans need full-sized blankets and diabetic socks. Please DO NOT knit lap warmers for veterans; the VAMC has a large supply.

WWP is pleased to announce a new site where yarn can be picked up and finished items dropped off: The Newark branch of the Lyons National Bank at 750 West Miller Street has kindly offered space for a WWP box. Other drop-off sites: Sheep & Wool Shop, 4849 Cory Corners Rd, Marion (call 926-5765 for hours), Creative Enviroments Day Care, 28 Main St., Macedon (near Macedon Public Library), and the Palmyra Village Clerk’s Office (first door on the right in the Village Hall), Main St, Palmyra. If you need a large volume of clothing picked up, please call Linda at (315) 986-9674.

For this winter, WWP needs mittens, especially in children’s sizes, as well as the usual hats and scarves in all sizes. The guidelines for mittens: Fasten them together, make sure they match in size and color, and avoid all-white mittens. Please finish items.

Service groups wishing to help clothe the needy can call Linda.

The Warm Winter Project now has a face book group page where friends can find updates and upload photos of the items they donate to WWP, and learn more

about the WWP letterboxing box that’s in the process of being set up. Many thanks to all the busy crafters who help keep their needy neighbors warmer!
