Gospel Rescue Mission Alaska

I have a friend contact that lives up in Anchorage, Alaska and was asking her about possible needs up there as one of our members is a Native Alaskan herself and it is usually cold up there year round depending on where a person lives. So my friend sent me a list of places the could us this sort of outreach.
As far as yarn goes we use 4 ply acrylics, homespun, baby clouds,
Our group meets on Fridays 10:00am - 12:30 pm at our church unless there is some other program happening.
We plan on sending 100 hats and 100 scarves to them as soon as we get them done.
Our last project which was an orphanage in Mexico was blessed beyond measure. Words were not enough from the children to think that people they don't know would make something just for them.
