Evergreen Donation

'Tis the season for keeping people warm!

Our super-crocheter, Tracy, was involved in an initiative at her workplace to collect coats and other warm clothing for Evergreen, a program of the Yonge Street Mission. It is directed toward homeless youth in the city, giving them a place to sleep, a good meal and some warm clothing in the winter, as well as continuing help including employment services.

Tracy and members of her work committee with our donation before it was delivered to the Mission.

We donated 42 hat and scarf sets and received wonderful letters of appreciation from both Evergreen and Tracy's employer. Thanks to all of our members who made even one hat or one scarf this year - every one counts!
