A local knitting group is focusing their efforts on making hats, scarves, and mittens for the Ballard Food Bank.
The group, Yak & Yarn, meets on the first and third Tuesdays of each month at Ballard Coffee Works. One of the members, Alexis, has decided to start collecting handmade items for the Ballard Food Bank, where she volunteers.
“I volunteer every week, and our clients just love donations of knitted or crocheted cold weather gear,” Alexis wrote in a post in the My Ballard Group.
To donate items, meet Alexis at Ballard Coffee Works during their bi-monthly meetings (held from 7pm to 9pm) — or donate them directly to the food bank.
