What is the Legacy Scarf Project
USING THE POWER OF SOCIAL MEDIA FOR THE "POWER OF GOOD"
WANTED: Knitted, crocheted scarves, any scarf that has been gently used and that needs a home, ... (No scarf will be turned away and all will find a new home.)
These scarves will go to those in need of warmth and a gift of kindness in December 2019. It could be anyone just needing something to brighten up their day.
The NEW ULTIMATE GOAL is to collect and gather 400+ scarves. If this goal is met prior to December 2019, then we will keep collecting and increase the goal.
All colours, patterns and sizes will be accepted. We will also accept clean 'gently used scarves' that have been pre-made or store bought. If you have a store bought scarf or a 'gently used scarf' hiding in your drawer or closet that you no longer want, please donate it!!
ALSO: If you know of anyone with remnants of yarn, please let them know about the project and if they might donate their remnants.

(Update for 2019June - there are 107 members on the FB group that are busy making scarves and we have collected over 250 scarves (including blankets and hats))
This idea came from a news story on Global News over Christmas 2018 about a family in the Toronto area that had been doing this for years and the positive effect it has had for those receiving the scarves and also to themselves for being able to give back to their community.
