Knitting for Our Troops (K*4*O*T) Caps Project

Knitting for Our TroopsKeeping Our Soldiers Warm All Over the World!

Fresh City Life is partnering with the Rocky Mountain USO to create knitted items for care packages for our service men and women overseas. It's easy to join the project: just knit a cap or two and deliver them to the Fresh City Life office, in the Central Library (Fresh City Life is located on Level One, west entrance) and we'll bundle them up and deliver them to the Rocky Mountain USO. They'll package the caps with other donated gifts and essentials for our soldiers and send them off.

Dear Knitters,

 

 

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the Knitting for Our Troops project. We will continue to collect hats through the end of October 2010. Hats received after that time will be donated to another worthy cause here in Denver (like Urban Peak center for at-risk and homeless youth).
