Oh What A Night ...

Linda and Priscilla starting the sortDashing out into the cool autumn air, Grace, Linda, Priscilla and I, members of The HHCC (Connecticut Chapter of the CGOA), met at our local Borders bookstore last night.  Our goal was to match up hats, mittens/gloves, and scarves -- sorting by color, by size -- and labeling each bag to make it easier for our local Salvation Army to distribute to those in need.

When we were done there were three sweater sets for infants and 64 completed sets of hats, mittens, and scarves.  We also found that we were in need of a hats, mittens/gloves, and scarves for the Danbury Salvation Army drivedozen scarves to complete 12 more sets, so the Challenge was sent out to our members to see if we can complete them before December 7th, our official date to donate all the sets along with new toys we donate each year.

I think we can do it ... and I think this Challenge will be interesting to see how it effects Priscilla's contest.  I told her last night, before knowing we needed a dozen more scarves, that her official personal "Creating for Charity" goal would be beat by six items (making it 106) ... now I'm rethinking that. LOL   If you haven't entered her contest yet, there's still time.  But not much!
