Season Total So Far

Drum roll, please….our season total so far for as what the Wrap Up! Project has received in donations and put out is……3,064 items!  You guys rock!

Let’s see if we can bring that up to 3,500 donations for the April scarf-bombing.  The March scarf-bombing has been cancelled, but April spring weather can still be cold, especially in the evenings.  We can do this!  Share this post on social media and get the word out, and get started creating scarves.  If you have stuff ready to go, get them to the drop off locations.  Let’s keep Lancaster and Columbia warm!

It May Be Spring….

…..but we still need scarves!

As we can all identify for those of us who live in Pennsylvania right now, the weather can change on a dime, meaning, it can and probably will get cold again.  With that being said, we still need scarves!  The evenings can still be cold, and the days can be, too.

You can do it!  Get crafting and whip up some scarves?  Have some and need to drop them off?  Click here for our drop off points.

Be sure to spread the word that we need scarves, too!

February Scarf-Bombing

February may be warm, but the weather can change.  It’s still winter, after all!  That’s why the Wrap Up! Project is having their February scarf-bombing on February 28, 2017 Reservoir Park in Lancaster, PA, and the it’s off to Columbia Presbyterian.  Meet at the park at 7pm. See the Facebook event to sign up and to get more information.

In the meantime, keep up the awesome work with creating scarf for WUP.  We have received so many donations in the past month!  YOU GUYS ROCK!!!

February Tagging Party

Yeesh.  It feel like spring outside.  Is that going to hamper the Wrap Up! Project’s efforts?  NOPE!  It’s still cold in the evenings, and the weather could change on a dime.  With that in mind, we’re gearing up for our next scarf-bombing by having our February Tagging Party on February 27, 2017 from 7pm-9pm at Kegel’s Produce.  Bring a snack to share!

As usual, we will be tagging items for the next scarf-bombing, and many hands make light work.  It’s a great social event, too!  We’d love to see you there.

Let us know you’re coming on the Facebook event page.  We hop to see you there!

ICYMI: January’s Scarf-Bombing

Hi!  Jenn here, your friendly WUP media person.

I want to apologize for not being more on top of things here, but I have a good excuse:  I’ve been sick.

I’m not still feeling great, but at least I’m able to update about the most recent scarf-bombing this past January 2017, right?  We were at the YWCA in Lancaster, PA, USA, as well as our usual stop at Columbia Presbyterian Church in Columbia, PA, USA.

One awesome thing about this past scarf-bombing?  WUP was joined by a couple of helpful students from Reidenbaugh Elementary in our efforts. Here they are pictured below.

Thanks for your help, ladies!  They are members of their school’s knitting club, and contributed to what WUP put out that night, too.  Read more about their efforts here, and support them!

I’ll leave you with a few more photos from the evening.  Be sure to check out the WUP Facebook page to see more videos of the event and to keep up to date on what we’re doing, too!

As for me, I promise, I’ll get better soon, and I’m sure many of you out there are going through the same thing with winter illnesses.  Be well!

January Events

I’m sure we can all agree that the weather has been relatively unpleasant lately, with it being all cold, and sometimes rainy.  That’s make what we do here at The Wrap Up! Project all the more important!  Speaking of getting ready, here are a few January events that that we need your help with.

Tagging Party

The next tagging party will take place at Kegel’s Produce on January 26, 2017 from 6:30pm-9pm.  The more hands we have there to help tag, the quicker it gets done.  Bring along your current project and we’ll socialize, too!  Sign up here on the Facebook page for this event.

Scarf-Bombing

The next scarf-bombing will take place January 31, 2017 around the Lancaster YWCA.  A need for warm items has been expressed for that area, so we’re going to step up to the challenge and meet there.  After we are done in Lancaster, it’s off to scarf-bomb the Columbia Presbyterian Church, as is usually the case.  Let us know you’re coming on the Facebook page for this particular event.

That’s what’s happening with WUP in the next few weeks.  We hope to see you at one or both January events!  The more help we have, the quicker it goes, and we have a good time doing what we do, too.

Look How We’ve Grown!

Happy New Year from the Wrap Up! Project!  To start the new year off, we want to share some awesome statistics with you to show you how the project has grow, well, exploded, over the past three years.  We couldn’t have done it without your participation and support!

Ok, let’s see and take a look how we’ve grown!

First Season

During the first season of WUP, we had four scarf-bombings, and 524 items were put out in various places around Lancaster City.  Not bad for our first season!

Second Season

For the second season of WUP, there were are total of five scarf-bombings, which included both Lancaster City and Columbia.  Ready for this number?  1132 items total were put out for people to take during the cold weather months.

Third Season

Now, keep in mind, we are currently in the third season, but here’s what has been done so far.

  • October:  657 items were put out between Lancaster City and Columbia.
  • November:  Cancelled due to a busy holiday season.
  • December:  345 items were put out in both locations.

That’s a total of 1002 items so far, and we know that many of you out there are still making and creating items for us to put out, and taking them to our different drop off points.

Thank you for being a part of the great project!  Watch and participate as we continue to expand and grow.  Keep an eye out for the next tagging party and scarf-bombing.  Our organizers are a bit busy right now, so hang tight, keep an eye out on the blog here and the WUP Facebook page.
