THE RUTH MAILBAG GROUP NEEDS YARN/WOOL
by: Anonymous

THE RUTH MAILBAG GROUP NEEDS YARN/WOOL
Every week we gift 40 or more destitute moms and their babies at the state hospital in town. Our baby pack contains a cap, jersey/sweater/matinee jacket, bootees/leggings, blanket, nappy, pin/fastener, cream/lotion, etc. Our stock of yarn is depleted. We need yarn. Please clean out your closets, pare down your stash, and help us by donating yarn you’re no longer going to use; quantity or colour is not important – it is about keeping little ones warm. Kindly send your contributions to:
The Ruth Mailbag Group
“FOR CHARITY – NO RETAIL VALUE”
C/o Foto First 180 Murchison Street
Ladysmith, 3370
South Africa
Please visit our groups to see what we are doing for the moms and babies:
