Red Scarf Project:

The Red Scarf Project is a program by Foster Care to Success that sends scarves to Foster kids who are going to college. Most of these young adults have aged out of foster care and will have no family to send them care packages while they are at college.  The deadline for this year is December 15th, 2011, so that the scarves can be given to the kids on Valentine’s Day 2012.  If you can’t participate this year, please consider throwing some red yarn in your “On the Go” bag and knitting or crocheting a scarf throughout the year and submitting it for next year.
