With colder weather coming soon. If you have a hobby like knitting, crocheting or tailoring or quilting. Many people have become homeless due to the pandemic. They’ll need Scarves, hats, gloves, blankets and warm clothing.
They’re struggling to provide for themselves and family.
Help them by making these items and donating to Goodwill, Salvation Army, food pantries. Or directly to the homeless shelters in your areas.
There are tons of free crocheting, knitting, tailoring and quilting patterns on the web and Pinterest and Even Instagram.
When donating food it must be shelf stable. Something that will last awhile. Non-perishables.
It may not be much yet every little bit helps.

Romanian Pound Won’t Feed Dogs for 12 Days of Christmas
We’ve learned that more than 400 dogs at the Mioveni pound in Romania will be on their own for 12 days beginning on Christmas Eve. No workers are expected to come in over the holidays, leaving the dogs without food and water. Especially during the cold weather when these dogs have only minimal shelter from the cold, mealtime is the most important time of day. We can’t let them go hungry.
Typically, these dogs receive leftover food from the local prison and from a car factory. It is a mix of food scraps that also includes toothpicks, orange and banana peels, napkins and other garbage. We’re in negotiations now to try to change that diet and to make sweeping improvements to the dog pound over the next few years, but the first step is to make sure the dogs don’t go hungry this month.
It will cost $130 each day to provide 23 sacks of kibble for the dogs, plus a bit of extra money to compel workers to come in to work those days. We will need repeat this all the days the workers are scheduled to be on vacation from Christmas Eve straight through to January 4. If your contributions exceed the cost of 12 days of dog food, we will be able to help with more good quality food in January and February and this will also help us feed many other dogs and cats in Romania who are also at risk of going hungry.

INDIAN TRAIL, N.C. (CBS Local) — An animal rescue group in North Carolina area wants your old bras. It may sound funny, but this is no joke.
Carolina Waterfowl Rescue caused a bit of a bruhaha on social media last week when it requested discarded bras to help save the lives of turtles.
It’s not the bra itself they want, however. They use the clasps to weld turtles’ cracked shells back together.
“It acts like a little fixator, it’s the eyelets that we need,” Keenan Freitas at the Carolina Waterfowl Rescue told CBS affiliate WBTV.
