we are knitters and crocheters passionate for a cause: we want to show the women in Vancouver who were coerced into prostitution and/ or affected by poverty that somebody cares for them.
The DT Eastside can seem like a place where a person has little value. Even before it is the season to hand out our handmade treasure, we would like to bring a bit of warmth into this area of town.
Yew Meng and I will organize some treats to hand out. Join us if you would like to take this opportunity to connect to the ladies we are knitting for.
We will meet at Cityview Baptist Church on Sophia Street at 28th Avenue for a quick briefing and then head out to an area on Hastings/ Cordova that is heavily affected by prostitution and street crime. So this may not be everybody's thing to do, but it is very rewarding.
With your RSVP please also indicate if you need transportation.
