Charity Knitting Opportunitites

I found this in the What's New section of the Yarn Garden website:

Charity Knitting in the Sipperie! Our customers have brought to our attention two service organizations in Portland that are asking for help. Portland Rescue Mission is in dire need of warm hats and socks and the volunteers at Veterans Hospital say they are in need of large lap robes for their wheelchair bound patients. If you can help out, we have a sign up sheet and will give you free patterns and a 20% discount on your purchases for these charities. Helping hands make warm hearts!We’ll have a staff member available to help out with yarn selection, patterns and any knitting questions. Plan on joining us to share our talents and enrich the lives of those in need.
Just thought those of you in the Portland Metro area might be interested. I also added a CHARITY KNITTING Opportunity section in the sidebar for those of you interested in helping others through doing what you love!

Kim (my dd, 12)makes some awesome hats and she's pretty quick too. I've done some knitting for the CIC group, and just bought some yarn there at Yarn Garden when we met there, just for CIC. I wonder if they would give discounts for otehr groups besides the local ones. I'll have to ask next time.
