As the weather turns colder, we not only experience an increase in the amount of people in need but also an increase in the amount of people who want to provide comfort and assistance to others.

Over the years a number of knitting groups, craft circles, and individuals have lovingly hand-stitched beanies, scarves, socks, and blankets to keep those sleeping rough warm during the winter months. While our branches across the state give out as many items as we can, we can barely keep up with the quick knitting needles!

These groups have graciously allowed Rosies to use some of their items to raise funds for the work that we do in the local community. You can now purchase a beanie, scarf or large blanket* from with all funds raised going to support people in need. So take a look and get in quick as many of the items are one-of-a-kind so once they’re gone – they’re gone!

*Large knitted blankets are not suitable for our friends on the street as they are heavy and take up too much room in their packs.
