Looking for a few good knitters

Hannah Klaassen and Allison Verbil, eighth-grade Cadette Girl Scouts from Los Altos troop 60755, are looking for help from the community — especially from anyone adept at knitting or crocheting.

The girls are working to earn their Girl Scout Silver Award by knitting and crocheting hats and scarves for donation to the homeless in the community. According to Hannah and Allison, there are nearly 390 homeless men, women and children on the streets trying to survive the cold winter in the Los Altos and Mountain View area. The girls are working with Community Services Agency (CSA) in Mountain View to donate handmade hats and scarves. CSA will distribute the warm items to the homeless.

Anyone who would like to participate may drop off handmade items at the Mountain View Senior Center at 266 Escuela Ave. or at Uncommon Threads, 293 State Street, Los Altos. The deadline for donations is the end of March.

For more information about the project, or to arrange for a pickup of scarves and hats, email knit4mv-la@yahoo.com.

CSA, located at 204 S. Stierlin Road, offers assistance to local residents in need, including seniors, the homeless and others.
