Knitters sought for hats and mittens for Holiday House
If you can knit or crochet, and are willing to make a few pairs of mittens or some children’s hats, Holiday House can use your help. Hats and mittens are distributed along with winter coats to local children in need during the Holiday House Winter Wraps event. This year’s event will be held from October 24 to October 26.
Winter Wraps serves children birth to 12 years of age. In 2011, over 1,700 children received warm winter coats, hats, and mittens. This year, the Holiday House Team expects to exceed that number of children served. Holiday House serves area children in need through a coordinated community effort.

The Holiday House participating agencies are: the Kenosha County Department of Human Services, Women and Children’s Horizons, the Shalom Center, the Urban League of Racine and Kenosha, Southern Lakes Credit Union, Community Action Agency, Kenosha News, R.S.V.P., and Goodwill Industries, Inc.
