Hats for kids
The Lowell Community Food Bank, in conjunction with Teresa Wilson of Country Yarns in Snohomish, are launching a Hats for Kids program. The program is looking for volunteers who love knitting, crocheting and stitching together a creative celebration of toasty hats for kids who might otherwise do without.
There are many ways to help by donating yarn, knitting needles and finished hats.
For anyone who always wanted to learn how to knit, the program has a deal for you with free beginner’s knitting classes in exchange for the expectation to donate hats. Email Sequoia at email@example.com or Teresa at firstname.lastname@example.org.
So far, the effort has produced several hundred hats, Warner said in late February.
The Lowell Community Food Bank is inside the River of Life Community Church at 5218 S. 2nd St. in Lowell.
