We helped the

Center for Women and Families

with our

Scarf Project

Did you know...

  • A woman is beaten every 15 second.
  • Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women between the ages of 15 and 44 in the United States.
  • Women of all cultures, races, occupations, income levels, and ages are victims of domestic violence or abuse.
  • Women who leave their abusers are at a 75% greater risk of being killed by the abuser than those who stay.
  • There are nearly three times as many animal shelters in the United States as there are shelters for women and children

Last fall, our main project has been to knit and crochet scarves for The Center for Women and Families, a local domestic violence and rape crisis center here in Louisville.

On December 19, 2007 we delivered 111 gift bags containing a handmade scarf and travel-sized toiletry items. We also donated twelve $25 gift cards to be used by mothers for holiday shopping for their children.

Visit our blog for more details about this rewarding project.

Students fold tissue paper before putting it in the gift bags.   Students assemble gift bags containing scarves and travel-sized toiletries.
