I know I would write about the The Wrap Up, Lancaster Project on the previous version of this blog, but it’s important.
The Wrap Up, Lancaster Project is a volunteer group that knits and scarf-bombs parks in Lancaster, PA. We knit, crochet, and weave handmade scarves, and then tie or hang them in neighborhood parks around the city. We received a great response last winter, and hope to expand to perhaps other communities around Lancaster County in the future.
I learned about this group though a news story in the local newspaper. I then contacted Angelia Reed, the founder of the group, and got started. Here is the group’s Facebook page for anyone interested.
How can you get involved? First, come out to The Arch on September 6, 2015 in Lancaster, PA to learn more and get excited about the project. Angelia also offers knitting classes at The Arch, too, if you want to learn.
Want to donate scarves? Keep an eye out on the Facebook page above to find out where the drop off locations are.
Don’t knit, crochet or weave and still want to help? We’d still love your financial support for supplies through the group’s GoFundMe page.
Take a look at one of our scarf-bombings from last year below.
Everyone deserves to be warm when the weather gets cold, and that’s why we do what we do with The Wrap Up, Lancaster Project. We’d love your help and support.
