We invite you to help us raise money and awareness for the Pine Street Inn of Boston, New England's largest resource for homeless men and women, by pledging to the 2nd Annual Pine Street Inn Knit-A-Thon. Though best known for its emergency shelters, Pine Street became one of the first organizations to implement supportive housing for homeless individuals. Today, Pine Street now has close to 500 residents living in 30 houses and sites throughout Boston and Brookline. They anticipate adding another 151 units in the development pipeline.
We will be joining many Boston area knitters on Sunday, November 9th to assemble our 9 x 9 inch pre-knitted squares into blankets, which will be presented to the tenants of the Pine Street Inn residences. With the help of our friends Karyn Cousins, Lynn Lonabocker, Ellen Cohen, Lisa Dolan, and Beth Compson, we anticipate knitting 50 squares for the event. We ask that you donate on a per square basis; i.e. 50 squares x $1.00 = $50.00 or feel free to make the donation of your choice. Thank you in advance for your help and we invite you to visit the Pine Street Inn's website at www.pinestreetinn.org for more information.
