Back in Action!

The Wrap Up! Project is back in action and getting ready for our FOURTH season of scarf-bombing at locations in Lancaster County.  We hope you’ve been busily creating handmade scarves and other cold weather gear for those in need.

There are few upcoming events that we would like to tell everyone about.  We are diving right in with a scarf bombing this month, and we need some extra sets of hands to help get ready.  All are fun and social!

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!
