Angelia and I will be at the Millersville Community Church Family Fun Day tomorrow, June 11, representing the The Wrap Up, Lancaster Project. We’ll be there selling cool items, taking donations, and spreading the word about the project.
It’s supposed to be a hot day tomorrow with thunderstorms, but those aren’t supposed to happen until later in the day, so come on out and have some fun!
We need your help!
The Wrap Up, Lancaster Project does still need your help, financially. The project is growing, and funds are needed for an office space and storage. Angelia is also working hard to make the project a 501(c) charity organization!
So, how can you help??
Head on over the project’s GoFundMe page and make a donation and help spread the word. Simple enough! Even in you aren’t in the Lancaster area and want to help us out, a donation is a great way to support our efforts. Anyone can donate!
The Wrap Up, Lancaster Project (WUL) needs some help. We need handmade scarves, extra hands at the scarf-bombing themselves, and funds to bring it all together. That’s why I need to bring your attention to WUL’s GoFundMe page.
What can I do to help?
Right now, money would be a boon. You know all those tags we put on each item that tells the finder that it’s free? Those cost about $200.00 a season to make. A little extra money in the GoFundMe account would be a fantastic way to cover this expense, and would be an excellent way to help out if you love the idea of what we do and want to help out. Monetary donations are a great way to help if you don’t know how to knit or crochet, too.
Anything you could give would be appreciated: your abilities, your time, and your monetary support.
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.
