CLAREMONT : Warmth by the Yard in Afghans for Homeless

October 13, 1994

At this year's Los Angeles County Fair, volunteers for a Claremont church group collected 3,000 knitted or crocheted squares that will be used to make afghans for local homeless people.

Our Lady of the Assumption volunteers worked on piecing together the afghans at tables in the fair's Home Arts Building, where many fair-goers stopped by to bring donated squares or pick up donated yarn to make the squares.

The group collected more than twice as many squares this year as it did at the 1993 fair. The afghans are part of a project coordinated by the Archdiocesan Council of Catholic Women of Los Angeles. Most of the volunteers are senior citizens who work on the squares at home or in church.
