Red Scarf Project 2016!
Once again, The Fiber Factory is supporting the Orphan Foundation of America’s Red Scarf Project: Foster Care for Success Program. Children that go through the foster care system often face challenges getting the education they need to lead happy and productive lives.
The Foster Care for Success program gives scholarships to further the education of kids who would not have the money to continue their education. In 2005 the Foster Care for Success program began sending the kids that were attending college or vocational schools a Valentine’s Day care package. These kids often don’t have family or parents who would send care packages to them. So, to show that someone cares – packages are sent with treats including a red hand knitted or crocheted scarf.
Come in and purchase your yarn and ask for the Red Scarf discount for this project. Drop off your scarves by December 1st!
RED SCARF PROJECT GUIDELINES:Size: approximately 60” long and 5” to 8” wide. Scarves should be long enough to be wrapped around the neck, with tails long enough to be tied in the front. Style: Think unisex collegiate. Fringes are optional. Your scarf should drape, tie easily and be soft. Color: Red! However, this could mean burgundy, cherry, russet, red stripes with other colors, or multicolor hues including red. Finished & tagged: Yarn ends should be securely sewn in. For a personal touch, attach a tag saying “Handmade for You” with your first name, city, and group affiliation, if any. Donors have also included washing instructions, messages of encouragement, gift cards, and more.
