Donations requested in aid of needlework for the needy

February 26, 2013 by  

The Seekonk Human Services Knitting League has started calling for yarn donations so that it may carry on its pursuit to ‘Knit for the Needy’.

Donors are asked to bring skeins of yarn to Seekonk Human Services at 320 Pleasant Street. For those who have no means of transportation to get to the Center, arrangements can be made for a volunteer to come to their home and pick up the donation.

To learn more about the Knit for the Needy program or to request that a yarn donation is picked up, please call (508) 336-8772.

Seekonk Human Services is committed to ensuring the comfort and well-being of Seekonk’s elderly citizens of all ages who suffer from economic hardships, health, or family issues and all types of adversity. Addressing the needs of clients, whether it may be in the form of food, housing, clothing, transportation, or legal or printing services, is this Center’s goal. Further, the agency strives to provide community services that are accessible, just, and impartial. It is through providing effectual, quality services commensurate with the community’s needs, and fostering an environment of confidence and honesty that these goals are achieved.

Seekonk Human Services recognizes and appreciates the inherent value of each individual in the community and endeavors to respect their dignity notwithstanding rank and status.

In another direction, people who would like to knit or require assistance with their knitting are welcome to join the knitting group. Knitters meet every Monday afternoon from 12:30 pm to 2:30 pm in the Human Services activities room. Banner and flyer printing is used to point the way.
