SAINT’S SCARVES

We are gathering adult-sized, hand-knit and crocheted scarves and hats to bless the homeless in the winter. (We won’t be doing children/newborn sizes. We suggest you find a crisis-nursery in your area that will accept those goods.)

A bowl of happy

It’s not tax deductible, it’s not a charity (legally) but just a bunch of people trying to make life a bit better for the homeless in a cold climate. You knit the scarf or hat, mail it to me, we’ll gift wrap it and distribute it. Here’s the detail on that:

Each scarf must be six feet in length, and six inches in width (wider or longer if you insist!). That’s simple enough!

I am asking you to put the finished scarf in the smallest possible package you can manage with a note of encouragement on a small card for the recipient. I suggest you put it all in a Ziploc bag and squeeze out all the air. (These have to fit into my tiny office at the Post Office.)

You can mail them directly to me at:

Commotion In The Pews
Post Office Box 4997
101 Fifth Street East
Saint Paul, MN 55101

The address MUST INCLUDE THE POST OFFICE BOX NUMBER. Otherwise, it will be returned to you by the Postal Service.

Also, I need to make something very clear: I AM NOT A CHARITY. I AM NOT A 501 ANYTHING. Yes, you read that right. You can’t deduct this on your taxes. We’re just doing this because it’s cool. No receipts, no tax deductions, but a nice smile at the end of the process.
