Here is our second project for 2019: Project Winter Warmers! Although it’s summertime and most of us are sweltering, all too soon winter will creep up and there will be plenty of people in our community without work rights or government support who will need some help keeping warm as the temperature drops.
Project: Winter Warmers is an opportunity to get the jump on these future needs by starting early to support those organisations working with people seeking asylum in our communities.
WE WILL NEED:
– knitted or crocheted BLANKETS, BEANIES OR SOCKS in adult sizes. These will be distributed to the Indooroopilly Uniting Church Refugee Welcome Hub, Asylum Circle and the Romero Centre in Brisbane before winter.
Items should preferably be made with a yarn that is easy to wash/care for (ie: cotton, acrylic).
Here is a small selection of basic patterns. You are more than welcome to use your own pattern instead!
Items will need to be received by May 20th, 2019 and can be posted to:
Project Winter Warmers
13 Panorama St,
Bray Park QLD 4500
