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 finished Season 2 on April 8, 2016 with scarf bombings in both Reservoir Park in Lancaster, PA and at the Columbia Presbyterian Church in Columbia, PA. We had a great year!!!
Angelia Reed, our fearless and enterprising leader, and I, along her mother and daughter, scarf bombed those places. Angelia broadcasted both bombings on Periscope as I filmed it. We love it if you watch them on Katch here below.
Erin Negley of LNP has a been a great cheerleader for the project, too. She is a staff writer for our local newspaper, and wrote an awesome article detailing the second season. I encourage you to read it, watch the videos, and there’s even a great pie chart of statistics.
Until next fall, come visit us the East Side Market in Musser Park in Lancaster, PA, starting Sunday, May 17, 2016.
Oh, and this is really important……there’s a store open for fundraising for the project. Like t-shirts and/or tote bags? We’ve got you covered.
So, here’s to looking forward to Season 3!
It’s time for the last scarf bombing of the season with The Wrap Up, Lancaster Project! As you can see from the gaudy graphic at the top, we will be broadcasting the tonight’s scarf bombing live on Periscope (downloadable for iOS and Android). Just follow the details, but we will have the night’s events available on Katch, too, through the same user.
We will be scarf bombing Reservoir Park in Lancaster, PA. It’s actually be pretty cold here in PA during the past few days, and we’re even supposed to get SNOW tomorrow. It may be April, but people still need to be warm during this crazy weather.
I encourage you to hop into Periscope and see what we’re all about.
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.
