Here we are at the Stouffville Library for our donation for 2011. This year we were able to donate just about 2000 hand crafted warm items, 25 large bags in total to shelters and out reach programs in York Region and the GTA for this winter.

As you can see the bags are jam packed to the brim and the recipients are looking very happy with what they have received and that makes us feel so warm inside, to see their appreciation of we have done to help out. Most of these shelters have lots of kids of all ages and the Casting Off The Cold team was diligently working all year to provide lots of clothing for these little ones.

I cannot imaging not having something to wear in the summer, and what's worse, not having something warm to wear for the winter. I cannot imaging it at all!!

We must be thankful for what we have and always try to help what ever you can, those in need close to home.
Guess what! The Casting Off the Cold team worked trough the winter months making Afghans for youth centers and shelters in York Region and in the city of Toronto, 40 total and will be starting on some more Afghans in January of next year. So if you feel that this is a project you would like to work on to help out with, we will be very appreciative to receive some from you out there. And don't forget the little ones.
