Upcoming December Scarf-Bombing!

Ack!  Where did this month go?  Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, there will be no scarf-bombing in November, BUT…the next one will be Wednesday, December 7, 2016 at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Lancaster, PA at 7pm.  We will then head on over to Columbia Presbyterian Church afterwards.  Check out the Facebook event for more details!

All of us at The Wrap Up! Project want to wish you and your family a happy, safe, and WARM Thanksgiving!  We appreciate and are thankful for all of our awesome volunteers, drop off businesses, crafters, EVERYONE who has supported us for the past three seasons.  We can’t do it without you, and we are so happy with the way this endeavor has grown over.

Happy Thanksgiving!

 

WUL Season 3 Preparations

We’ve got a lot to talk about, people, as we are getting underway for WUL Season 3 scarf-bombings.  Preparations need to be made, and we need YOUR help!

As for right now, we have 119 scarves, 236 hats, 1 pair of fingerless mitts, and 1 knitted ear muff.  We would like to have about 300 scarves to get the season going, so we can put 100 out at each location.  We need 180 more scarves!

In the meantime, let’s start with what needs to be done with WUL Season 3 preparations.

Ephrata, PA

WUL is looking to start scarf-bombing in Ephrata, PA every other month during the season, as long as we have donations.  What we need in Ephrata is:

  • A Business as a Donation Drop-off Point.  We need a good business in Ephrata to act as a drop-off point for donations.  Do you own a business there or have a suggestion?  Let us know at info@wrapuplancaster.org.
  • A Point Person.  We are looking for a volunteer to act as a point person for Ephrata to pick up donated items, arrange for drop-off locations, and find good scarf-bombing locations.  Feel like you are a good fit for this volunteer position?  Email us at info@wrapuplancaster.org!

Planning Committee

Next on the agenda, is that WUL is looking for volunteers to be on a planning committee.  This would be a monthly meeting, and a desire to help plan the direction of WUL, such as helping us become a non-profit, raising money, how we can have an income stream, and expanding the project.  If you think you fit the bill, e-mail us at info@wrapuplancaster.org.

Other News

If you need yarn, WUL has a small stash that would be gladly given to someone to make scarves with.  Contact us at info@wrapuplancaster.org if you are interested.  Remember, Lancaster Creative Reuse, and The Art of Recycle in Ephrata, PA are excellent places to get cheap yarn that would be perfect for scarves!

Second, we would like to thank the Red Rows Knitting Guild for their recent monetary donation!  We appreciate it!

That’s the new you can use for WUL as of right now.  Please consider not only donating scarves, but your time as well.  We need YOU to be involved and active in WUL.
