Knit for the Greater Good for Youth in Need!

 
Utilize your knitting skills to help the greater good! Join other volunteers to knit or crochet hats, scarves, mittens, and other warm items for kids in Boston. Hats and other items are needed to fit kids of all ages (newborn to 18 years old). Don't know how to knit, or has it been awhile, and could use some assistance? We would be happy to teach you or assist with refreshing your knitting skills. Please note that you will need to bring your own supplies - yarn and needles. 
 
Please let us know in advance by emailing Carrie McGuire before signing up for a project with your preferred project date. 
 
Youth-friendly, 14+. All youth under 16 must be accompanied by an adult over 18. All volunteers under 18 years old must bring a Permission Form signed by a parent or guardian to give to the Project Leader. Please email youth@bostoncares.org or call 617-422-0910 x 208 if you have any questions.
