Stitches for Peace is rather low-key as far as Volunteer Networks go. Members meet on Wednesdays in the Mellby Lounge to knit and crochet; it is a good time for people to gather and unwind. The products our members create are then sold during the year at events, like the Ole Bazaar and during the Christmas Festival.
All of the proceeds from sales are donated to Heifer International, a charity organization dedicated to bringing sustainable agriculture and commerce to areas in poverty. Animals are given to families in need, providing them with a means of income and self-reliance. Stitches for Peace may be a small organization, but its members are dedicated to helping a greater cause.
