Community Knitting Fall Collection

Mother Laura just received a desperate plea for these Toiletries. Our collection’s timing is just right to help. The need will increase greatly in the next few weeks as the winter shelters open in early November. Next time you are at the food store, please throw one or two extra items in your cart. We thank you!
Every holiday season the Community Knitters chooses a project for giving. This season we have chosen to help our local soup kitchens & shelters supply their clients with toiletries.
We suggest: soaps, shampoos, toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, lotion
ladies sanitary products, shaving supplies.
We will be collecting items at TKE through Thanksgiving.
Thank you for helping.
