On April 27, 2013 through April 28, 2013 there is going to be a KNIT AROUND THE CLOCK FUNDRAISER at Loopy Yarns 47 West Polk Street, Chicago, Illinois 60605 to raise money for the knitting program at Cook County Jail in Chicago, Illinois.
The knitting program at the jail is a program of The Women’s Justice Program. For five years the women in Division 17 of the Cook County Jail have been knitting and crocheting for 3 hours a week. The program offers them an opportunity to learn or enhance the skill of knitting and/or crocheting; make projects they can be proud of; an opportunity to complete something they have started; build self esteem and self worth; work on anger management skills; learn to relax and build community.
This event propelled by Loopy Yarns is a fundraiser to support the women to have yarn and equipment to make projects for themselves and family members. Many of the women have aspirations to change their lives and be productive individuals within their families and communities. This fundraiser will help make these aspirations become a reality.
Please become a sponsor and/or donate an item that can be raffled off for the knitters as they raise money around the clock.
All donations are tax deductible and should be sent to Loopy Yarns.
Please make checks to:
Committed Knitters/Southside Economic Development Project.
All sponsors with be listed in advertisements and sponsors donating over $500 will be given the opportunity to put their logo on a tee shirt with the other sponsors.
Thank you for support in helping women empower themselves in their communities. Let us all be a part of breaking the cycle of violence and abuse.
