A Yarnstorm’s Brewing at St. Anthony’sJuly 25th, 2012
by Dolores Gould
A major yarnstorm is brewing at St. Anthony’s. That’s right, major yarn is being predicted in our area with an expected 6,000 handmade hats and scarves to make landfall by Dec. 21, 2012. Thanks to the dedication of a large and diverse group of wonderful crafters, we will be collecting handmade hats and scarves again this year. So if you haven’t started already, get out those needles.!
The extremely low-income folks we serve here in the Tenderloin have appreciated the warmth and care of your hand crafted goods so much that this year we are making a few changes. We will distribute scarves and hats on cold or rainy days as they occur rather than wait for Christmas, which is long after the cold weather begins here in San Francisco. We will also distribute at Christmas.
Just imagine the relief on some frigid day yet to come when someone makes their way to the St. Anthony Dining Room for a hot meal and finds themselves also wrapped in a warm hat or scarf. Imagine knowing that in your darkest hour, there are people everywhere who care about you and how that knowledge may sustain and give courage through the days yet to come. Because when you choose hope, anything is possible. For details, click here.
