Tuesday November 14th, the Youth Resource Committee officially kicked off our Knit a Difference & Crochet Too! event at First Presbyterian Church!
November is Youth Homelessness Awareness month, and with more than 70 homeless youth in the Hudson School District alone, the Youth Resource Committee wanted to host an event that would raise awareness of youth homelessness while providing the community with an easy way to give back to youth in need.
To date, we have collected more than 250 hats and scarves, and have distributed them to Operation HELP, Houlton Elementary, Positive Alternatives and Grace Place.
The event runs through December 12th! Drop off location is First Presbyterian Church (1901 Vine Street, Hudson WI).
