Warm Up America

"Man's mind once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimension." Oliver Wendell Holmes

Our June meeting was held at Judy's home. We learned about Warm Up America, a foundation that was started by Evie Rosen because she wanted to help the homeless.

Volunteers knit or crochet a 7" x 9" rectangle, and these rectangles are put together to form an afghan.

To date, over 250,000 afghans have been given to victims of natural disasters, battered women's shelters, the homeless, and others in need.
