Warmer Winters is an organization that knits items for donation in the Leominster and Fitchburg area. It uses volunteer knitters and also has ambitions of being a co-op for disadvantaged women who can sell their knitted items.
The Metro West Knitting Guild is currently collecting knitted items for donation: must be machine washable, adult/child/baby items needed.
Central Massachusetts has the largest population of children under the poverty level in the state. Organizations in this area often have difficult times raising funds or meeting the community needs because the entire area is struggling. Chronicle recently had a segment on Fitchburg and the new Main Streets program for revitalization.
If you are looking for a charitable cause during the season of giving, please contact Warmer Winters.
*Warmer Winters is not a 403(c), so your donation is not tax deductible.
