One of my favorite non-profit, troop supporting organizations is Operation Gratitude. This winter season Operation Gratitude hopes to include a scarf or cap inside each of the 60,000 care packages sent to troops overseas! Volunteers are needed to knit and crochet, and to help spread the word!
KNITTING/CROCHETING REQUIREMENTS: Any pattern may be used, but we recommend keeping the scarves and caps very simple! A basic stitch with a soft yarn and a subtle color is perfect. To ensure your scarf will fit in our package, please adhere to these measurements as closely as possible: 5-7" across and no more than 50" long.
WHERE AND WHEN TO SEND:
Please send your scarves and caps between
September 8th--December 5th to:
Operation Gratitude/California Army National Guard
17330 Victory Blvd.
Van Nuys, CA 91406
Attn: Charlie Othold/Scarves
