HELP DONATE TO ABUSED WOMEN'S SHELTERS

9/3/2010 —

Penn State Brandywine’s Knittany Lion Needleworks challenged its faculty, staff and community this summer to knit or crochet 100 scarves for donation to Handmade Especially For You, a national, non-profit organization that makes and distributes scarves to shelters for abused women. The knitters surpassed their goal--they made 300 scarves--and need volunteers to join them at 12:30 p.m., Friday, Sept. 17, in the Commons Building, room 203, to help count, tag and roll the scarves for donation.

Each and every scarf will be given to the Domestic Abuse Project of Delaware County.

As a result of the passion and enthusiasm for the project, Associate Professor of Earth Sciences Laura Guertin and Student Affairs Specialist Diane Shorter worked together to officially establish a local chapter of Handmade Especially For You. “Knittany Lion Needleworks is now serving as the leader of the Delaware County Chapter,” Guertin said. “We’re thrilled to be able to reach out and connect with our local community.”
