The Warmies Project will be joining us for the fifth year! The Warmies Project is organized by BE Orlando. They collect handmade items to distribute when it gets cold. BE Orlando distributes the handmade items to homeless shelters, hospices, hospitals, domestic violence shelters and more.
In addition to the handmade items, BE Orlando is also happy to accept any donations of non-perishable foods, which will go to the Coalition for the Homeless. Any leftovers from the Orlando Distaff Day Potluck will also go directly to the Coalition, so if you “happen” to make twice as many cookies as we need for the event, they will still find a great home!
In 2018, Orlando Distaff Day attendees donated 136 handmade items and more than 70 items of donated food. Perhaps we can beat that total in 2019!
Craft up something from the heart to share with those less fortunate. Bring some non-perishable food. Visit The Warmies Project website for pictures of all the items donated by Orlando Distaff Day attendees over the last four years!
