Black Friday Events Special

Black Friday Events Special!

Well, Thanksgiving is over and Black Friday is upon us, and we here at WUP hope you got some great deals today!  In light of this day, we want to have a Black Friday Events Special, or just really let you know what’s coming up with WUP in the next few weeks as we all prepare for the holidays.

November Tagging Party

Our regular monthly tagging party will take place on Monday, November 27, 2017 at Kegel’s Produce in Lancaster at 7PM.  Please RSVP on the Facebook event page so we know you’re coming. You can get directions to Kegel’s Produce there, too.

November Scarf-Bombing

This month’s scarf-bombing will be taking place at the Lancaster Public Library at 7PM on November 28, 2017.  We will then be heading to the Columbia Presbyterian Church in Columbia, PA, USA afterwards.  Come for either one, or come for both, but please RSVP on the Facebook event page so we know you are coming.

Ewebiquitous

Ewebiquitious is a knitting shop in Lititz, PA, USA, and is doing a great project to collect scarves and other handmade cold weather items for WUP.  They are encouraging people to bring in their items to decorate their Christmas tree.  All items will them be donated to WUP.  Here’s more from their Facebook page:

Ewebiquitous is partnering with local charity The Wrap Up, Project this season and we need you and your skills (any skill level is welcome)!

Instead of ornaments and tinsel, we’ll be decorating our Christmas tree with your handmade donations of hats and scarves. Every single item will go directly to The Wrap Up organization to help warm a local person in need through the winter.

We will be accepting the donations between November 18th and Christmas–start now so we can fill our tree with warmth (and create a beautiful window display)!

Head on over to their Facebook page so you can learn more and get started in getting that tree covered in scarves!

We hope your Black Friday shopping has been productive.  We also hope you are doing well on your holiday crafting!  Best wishing, and keep and eye out here, on Facebook, and on our mailing list for updates.

October Scarf-Bombing Wrap-up

Last night on October 24, 2017, the Wrap Up! Project ventured into Lancaster and Columbia to scarf-bomb.  It may have been a warm day, but the night was cool, and people were out and about.  It was a great time to have a scarf-bombing!

Cub Scout 58 from Willow Street came out and lent their time and talents to distributing scarves last night.  Thanks, guys!  You did a great job!  We always welcome groups and members of the community to come out and help.

All of our volunteers who came out last night did a great job!  Even the furry ones!  Thank you guys for your help.

Here are a few more photos of the scarf-bombing around Penn Square and Columbia Presbyterian Church.  Read more in Erin Negly’s great article today in LNP!

 

As for me, Jenn the Tech Gal, I was walking to work today and saw two people happily walking along with two of the scarves that were put out last night, tags fluttering in the breeze.  It felt so good to see that!  We are making a difference.  YOU are making a difference.  Keep up the good work!


Have you heard about our upcoming event at The Speckled Sheep on October 31, 2017?  WUP will be having a Sit and Stitch, and you are invited!  LNP will be there to cover the event, so we would love it if you’d come out!  Be sure to RSVP and let us know you are coming on our Facebook event page.
