Thanks, Orlando Distaff Day!

The fiber artist community contributed 136 hand-made warmies yesterday – blankets, scarves, gloves, slippers & socks, shawls, hats, and more.   They also donated more than 70 items of food and wrote postcards to warm hearts – a nice touch to add an extra sprinkle of kindness to their 2018 Warmies drive!

Last night was designated a “cold night” at the Coalition for the Homeless.  There were more people waiting at the gate and on the campus than i’ve seen there in a long time. The lobby was packed with men, women, and children.  After a week of unexpected freezing nights, people were looking for shelter and warmth.  The Coalition was in need of warmies of all kinds – and Orlando Distaff Day helped to answer their call for community support.

Thank you to the fiber artists and the organizers of Orlando Distaff Day – you make a difference!

We’re looking forward to Orlando Distaff Day 2019 on January 5th!
