Scarf Donations For Those Need
A consignment shop in my town started collecting scarves for those in need. Right after Christmas for the last few years, they gather up the donations and "Scarf Bomb" the town of Athol. The scarves are tied to the lamp-posts, benches and street signs, for those in need to claim. Last year 100 were donated and all were claimed. Please help us keep families in need warm this winter.

Please look in your winter storage, or if you would like to purchase and donate a new scarf, it will be gratefully accepted. All donations (unless new with tags) are requested to be freshly laundered and placed in a plastic bag. Each scarf does not have to be individually bagged, you can bag multiples together.

I have agreed to reach out to our campus community for donations and am volunteering my personal time to trasnport them and assist in tying the donated scarves up to be claimed.

If you are interested in donating, I can arrange pickup from any UMass mail room over the next five weeks. I would like to receive all donations no later than Jan 5, 2017 for distribution later that weekend. Any donations made on the UMass campus should be placed in a tied-off walmart or big-y type plastic bag, with a note reading "Project Scarf - ATTN Mail Services" stapled to the bag. If you are part of the 5 college community and would like to donate, please contact me to make arrangements to get the donations to me.

I am hoping with help from the campus community we can double the number of scarves for this year!

Thanks in advance for helping families in need keep warm this winter...
