Well, we’re mid-way into the first month of the new year, and for the Special Olympics Scarf Project, there’s a frantic rush now to work on the scarves and send them on their way to the state programs. Most SO state programs hold their Winter Games in January and February, so the bulk of the deadlines are in January.
Here’s the latest update on the project. Since I was out travelling with spotty wifi, I’m just catching up with the state programs on their numbers for the Scarf Project, so those numbers for received items are not updated. I’m hoping that the state goals were met, or at least were close to getting the numbers they wanted.
There’s still time to make items for SO Kansas, Wyoming, Arkansas. If you have completed items for those three, mail them in now, so they can be counted.
SO Texas is way short of their goal – 500 out of 2,500. They’ve extended their deadline to 31 January 2016, so start mailing your items.
SO Delaware had a warm December 2015, so they’re holding their Games in late February 2016. That gives us another four weeks to make scarves and send them in time for their Games.
SO Alaska mailing is open. If you have items for SO Alaska, you can start mailing them in now.
So let’s get those hooks and needles busy!
Thanks so much to all who are working on this and supporting the Scarf Project.
