Scarves for Battered Women
Hello All,

I can't remember if I came across this charity on our little forum, so I'm going to apologize up front if it's a "re-run".

Anyways, the organization requests knitted or crocheted scarves and donates them to battered women's shelters. The coordinator's name is Leslye Borden. I had 4 scarves that I'd made for the Special Olympics last year, and then forgot I had them. When I found them again, the Special Olympics were over; and when I checked their website, they weren't requesting them any longer. I sent them to Leslye, and she was thrilled! She emailed me a thank you note and told me that over the holidays, the battering gets worse. I'm using some stash yarn and taking it to work with me to make another scarf or two.

If anyone's interested, the website with the details is:

...and here is an article from her home town newspaper:

Thanks for "listening"!
