And the city turned out in force. Downtown near the still-burning Drake became an open air rescue site where we brought whatever might be useful to someone who had just lost everything. That part of downtown became a beautiful traffic snarl as people from every neighborhood brought everything from diapers and blankets to coats, shoes and toothbrushes.
And it was a wonderful feeling to bring some Hats for the Homeless to this site of tragedy.
We brought the colors of
support to people who had just
lost their precarious place in
life one more time. We will
continue to work with service
providers to bring the gift of
warmth as these disaster
victims work toward stability.
Hats 4 the Homeless began distributing hats and scarves in early November to schools and social service agencies serving those in need. Luckily we still had hats on hand to deliver to folks who had just lost their home in the fire.
Thank you KNITTERS! We do make a difference.
