Items still wanted for Black Forest Project

-A A +A



Organizers are still taking items for the Black Forest project in Colorado.

Tina Derr, who lost her home in the Cerro Grande Fire 13 years ago, and others have been creating mittens, gloves, scarves, and other articles of clothing in time for a Dec. 15 deadline. They can be knitted, crocheted or sewn.

Participating drop-off points in Los Alamos include Village Arts Framing, 216 DP Rd. and Warm Hearts Yarn and Gift Boutique, 35 Rover Blvd., Suite D, White Rock. 

The owners of Warm Hearts, Katie Brousseau and Heidi Narum will also be hosting free knitting classes at their shop to help people participate and contribute the cause. “Thank you for working together for this opportunity to serve our neighbors in the north (Colorado Springs) with the Black Forest service project.  I have collected 110 hats/gloves/scarves thus far from the collection spots in Los Alamos. Derr said they are hoping to get 1,000 pieces to donate to Colorado.
