Charity Knitting

Please contact us if you have interest in any of the following charity knitting!

Knitting for Children 

Family Promise in Warren County, Ohio, provides families shelter, food, support, and education during a very stressful time in their lives.  Donations can be anything that can be used for warmth such as baby blankets and layettes, childrens' sweaters, hats, mittens, gloves, as well as gifts for adults.

Knitted Knockers 

Knitting breast prostheses for women who have undergone a mastectomy. Watch our Facebook group for updates on Knocker Knit Ins; check with Knitted Knockers of Southwest Ohio. You provide the needles, they provide the yarn. They are also in need currently of help stuffing the knockers that have been knitted, so reach out if you can spare some time to stuff!

Project Linus 

Provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need through the gifts of new, handmade blankets and afghans, lovingly created by volunteer “blanketeers”

Ohio's Hospice of Dayton

The hospice house has 55 bedrooms and is located on Wilmington Ave in Dayton. The hospice blesses each patient with a lap blanket to brighten up the room. These blankets are then given to the families in memorial. Ms. Simpson's only preferences for volunteer knitters and crocheters are that the blankets be approximately 42 inches by 36 inches (or larger, if interested), not scratchy (so patients remain comfortable), and not all black (to give them something cheery). Blankets are given to both male and female patients. Blankets can be dropped off at the hospice anytime or we can arrange a bulk pick-up with a volunteer from the hospice. The hospice is honored by any donations we can provide now and in the future.
