Sharing the Warmth: An OHF Community Event
November 15 @ 12:00 am - December 30 @ 12:00 amFree
Calling all knitters and crocheters in our community The Ottauquechee Health Foundation is inviting you to share the warmth by joining us in a community event.
We’re looking to gather a collection of wool workers to make hats, scarves, and mittens for people in need in our communities. The completed items will be given to children and adults at various sites, including schools, community buildings, food shelfs, and churches.
You can work on your own, of course, but we may have some Zoom groups in which we can work together, learn more about each other, and members of the OHF can share the work we do.
The pieces you make don’t have to be fancy. They just need to be warm!
We’re asking you to provide the wool and the time to make these items. It might be the perfect way for you to get rid of that extra yarn!
Dates for this event are October 15 to December 30, 2020.
The Sharing the Warmth project has three parts: Make, Collect, and Share.
The Make phase is happening now and will continue through December 30. I don’t know about you, but for me, November and knitting go hand in hand.
We’ll also be holding some virtual knitting/crocheting circles so we can get to know each other, and you can learn a little bit about what OHF does.
The Collect phase is when we gather all the amazing cold-weather items the Share the Warmth Team has created. There are three scheduled Collect events, all of which will happen on the lawn in front of the Ottauquechee Health Foundation (30 Pleasant Street in Woodstock).
- Saturday, November 13, 9-10am
- Saturday, December 12, 1-2pm
- Wednesday, December 30, 9-10am
Please note that masks and social distancing are required.
If you can’t make it to these events, let us know. We will coordinate a pick-up of your items.
We will distribute the items we collect to various locations in the towns we serve. We are currently working out the details, and we will post them soon. However, if you have any suggestions for where we can distribute these warm items, please let us know.
Other ways to help
Can you pick up stitches? By that, we mean, can you collect the lovely handcrafted items from folks who cannot attend our Collect events? If so, please let us know.
