Crocheting For A Cause

Crocheting For a Cause LogoCalling all crafters! Have you been looking for a chance to put your crocheting skills to good use? Do you want to volunteer but without the commute?

VCSJ announces Crocheting For A Cause, where volunteers can work on crochet projects from home that will benefit various non-profit organizations in South Jersey.

Three times a year (every four months) a different project will be announced to the crocheters and patterns will be posted online. The Volunteer Center will coordinate the collections and delivery to the various agencies.

Through April 30, 2017, the project goal is to reach 100 crocheted baby blankets and baby caps. Baby blankets will be donated to the Eleanor Corbett House, and baby caps will be donated to Mother and Child Residential.
