A Need for Yarn


As our faithful blog readers and benefactors know, our women have been learning how to crochet since September 2015.  The photo above attests to the progress they have made in crocheting during the past seven months -- from washcloths to scarves to afghans!  Now, they are asking for your help.  We are in need of funds to buy new yarn for the crocheters' ongoing projects.  Certainly, we will continue to use the leftover or unused skeins that you have already given us from your closets at home. These can be used when the women learn a new skill or want to make something small.  However, we are working toward teaching them how to sell their crocheted items online.  In order to do this, they must have items to sell.  In order to have items to sell, we must buy the yarn they need to do an entire project.

So, what exactly are we asking?  Would you be willing to donate money, Visa gift cards or gift cards for Hobby Lobby, A.C. Moore or Michaels to be used to buy the yarn our women need for their larger projects?  An easy way to donate money is to use the "Donate" button on the blog -- accessible by clicking here.  To donate cards, please call Sr. Ann Marie, Director of the Passaic Neighborhood Center for Women, at (973) 470-0844 or email her at sam@patersondiocese.org to arrange for drop off or pick up.

This would be a nice project for your parish group, women's or men's group, mission club, school or other organization. By donating to this cause, you are clearly assisting in the mission of the Center, helping to preserve the dignity of our women and strengthening their families.

Thank you for considering this request!
