"A friend in New York City donates to the Visiting Nurse Service of NY, and they would welcome handcrafted items for hurricane victims. Baby to elderly and everyone in-between. Washable yarn probably best."(Carol) Items can be sent asap.
Harrington, Volunteer Coordinator
Needed 200,000 warm coats to help the people of the NY area because of Hurricane Sandy.
Update- Nov 3 - I have heard from other knitters and crocheters that for handmade items there seems to be a need for sweaters, all sizes, and blankets. One thing I have thought of is that this need will likely be around a while- all winter, so if you are slow, not to worry as items will be needed for months.
