Knit Your Bit

Join our group of JVC Knitters who create beautiful, warm scarves and hats throughout the year. We ask your support in adhering to certain specifications requested by the partner agencies receiving the items to keep them as neutral yet functional and attractive as possible. These are donated to men and women, and a portion of the items are for children as well (about 10%). We are asking everyone to focus on adult scarves and hats for now, since we need to make many more of those items than the children’s ones.

As we do not get to handpick who will receive which items, we ask that items please be made along the following specifications:

  • Colors should be gender neutral – please avoid using pink yarn
  • Materials should be intended for warmth; function before beauty – please do not use frilly/feathery specialty products
  • Sizing should be along standard practices: 

Drop off all knitted or crocheted scarves and hats to Jewish Volunteer Connection at the Weinberg Park Heights JCC, 5708 Park Heights Avenue.
Please include a Donor Information Form inside the bag with your items.

Our staff is not in the office on a regular basis, and can ONLY receive items during the following drop-off times:
• Mondays, 8:30-10:45 a.m.
• Wednesdays, 12:30-3:00 p.m.
• Thursdays, 3:00-6:00 p.m.

JVC can help to coordinate collection items off-site if needed.
