Project Purple - Due Date: 6/30/2013 Received: 46 (note: due date has been changed!)

This week I need to start by reminding everyone that the Franklin, MA address is no longer a valid shipping address for us. 2 packages were received there this week but all packages should be shipped to my home and you must email me for my address. Effective August 1, 2013, any packages received at the Franklin, MA address will be returned to you - I can't have mail forwarded because its a UPS Store. I am very sorry for the inconvenience. 

Another important reminder - if you are sending mittens, socks or slippers, could you please take a moment to tie them together? It will save me the time when I am sorting through donations and I'd hate for mittens to lose their mates. Thank you!

If your organization will need hats for the 2013/14 winter season please send an email to We are taking requests at this time and will do all we can to help.

If you are looking for a great project to be part of, please check the Needs/Wish List page and Current Projects page for more information or Contact Us.

Have a great week!
