About 40 to 45 women at Confederation Seniors Centre have been busy this fall knitting hundreds of scarves, toques and mitts to donate to homeless people, children in need, and a local transition house.
"We recognize there are lots of people in need in our community, and this is our way of reaching out to help before the weather gets cold," said Lori-Ann Cornwall, a recreation leader at the centre.
The knitted collection was on display at the centre before the items were donated to Rotary Coats for Kids, Mission Possible, Lutheran Urban Mission Society, the food bank and Dixon Transition Society.
Some participating women created 100 or more pieces, according to Cornwall.
In all, 805 pieces were donated.
