Our Wish List

Thank you all again for a fantastic season of The Wrap Up Project!! Please keep making handmade scarves and other cold weather items over the warmer month, and be sure to take them to our drop off locations.

With that being said, we here at WUP have a wish list. Here’s a word from WUP’s fearless leader, Angelia Reed about what is needed.

This time of year, I like to go through our storage unit and organize it, so that we have room for incoming donations. We’ve grown every season, which means we have more donations (& less space in storage).

Last year, I started thinking about adding shelves to the unit so that we’d be able to use more of the space. This year, I have found what I think will be the perfect shelving unit for us.

If you’re interested in helping, see below for our current wish list. The items can be dropped off at one of our drop off locations, or you can message on Facebook us to make other arrangements.

All of these items are available at Lowe’s.
• Commander XL 17 gallon storage tote (quantity: 20)
• Commander Heavy Duty Shelving Unit (47.75”L x 20”W x 72”H) – 200lb load capacity per shelf (quantity: 2)

It’s Our Birthday!

Yup, it’s our birthday here at The Wrap Up! Project, and we are celebrating our third birthday/fourth season since founder Angelia Reed posted on Facebook about how she’d like to start scarf-bombing.

In a post on Facebook earlier today, Angelia had this to say about this momentous occasion:

I didn’t know back then that Wrap Up would become what it is today. It is way bigger (& more wonderful) than I imagined.

Special thanks to Amy Antonucci for sharing my post. Amy is not a knitter or crocheter. She just thought the idea was a good one & knew that she has friends who knit and/or crochet.

Special thanks, too, to Bethany Storms. Bethany is a crocheter. She saw Amy’s post and hopped right on board. She made the first three or four Wrap Up scarves. She also braved the cold to meet me in Binn’s Park one snowy night to put the scarves out.

Thank you to everyone who has helped to grow this project. We now leave over 700 items in Lancaster & Columbia each month!

Go treat yourself to some new yarn, hug your pet, have some cake, or do something positive that makes you happy to celebrate!

Rescheduled Evening Sit and Stitch

Due to weather conditions yesterday, the evening Sit and Stitch that was originally supposed to happen last night has been rescheduled for January 30, 2018, 5pm-7pm.  Please RSVP on Facebook to let us know if you’ll be there!

A Note from Angelia Reed

Wrap Up! Project founder Angelia Reed has a great note here you need to read.  Originally posted on Facebook, she would like to share her words, here.

Scarves donated to WUP.

Today, I went through the donated items that will make up the January scarf-bombings.

You all amaze me! This season is our biggest season yet. When I started it, I asked for more donated items than we had ever put out because we were planning on adding a location. I wasn’t sure if we’d be able to do it. After all, we use hand-made items. Hand-made items take time & effort. I worried that I was asking too much of you all. I worried that everyone would burn out & lose interest in this project.

You all rose to the challenge and donated more than 600 items for our first scarf-bombing of this season! Over 600!!! You consistently keep us supplied with items to put out for those in need.

Thank you! ❤️❤️❤️ Many of you aren’t able to make it to the scarf-bombings. I want you to know that there are almost always people walking by as we scarf-bomb. They ask what we’re doing, and why we’re doing it. Some of those people then take items. All of them think it’s a wonderful idea, and think that the items are beautiful. Kids & adults are thrilled to have a hand-made item they can call their own. They are so thankful. I’m telling you this because I want you to know that YOUR contribution to this project is making a difference in people’s lives. YOU are helping people. This project would not be successful without your contribution. Thank you. ❤️❤️❤️👏👏👏
