Did you know when a foster child turns 18 he or she no longer qualifies to live in the foster system? Rather than have services available to help these young adults continue becoming a productive member of society, these kids are often turned out into the streets to find their own way. The Red Scarf Project extends a hug to these kids in the form of red scarves knitted by you and me and then donated to their cause. We offer a large assortment of red yarns and knitting needles for your consideration, plus several super cute scarf patterns! Also, the Red Scarf Project organizers’ website offers patterns for you. You can access the Foster Care to Success website to learn how you can help in many other ways.
The red scarves need to be submitted by Nov. 30th so let’s whip one up for a young person in need of your hug.
