Mary Puckett of Brookings welcomes the holidays. She has joyfully spent the year collecting yarn from yard sales, thrift stores and friends, to lovingly create cheerful, warm scarves for those in need.
Puckett knitting about 30 years ago to help her stop smoking. She continues “smoke-free” as she prepares for her scarf giveaway.
Puckett donates the warm scarves to various organizations in both Gold Beach and Brookings.
Christian Help Thrift Store, the Food Bank, Homeless Coalition and Oasis House in Gold Beach receive her generous donations, as well as the Veterans Club and Coats for Kids of Brookings.
You might also find the colorful scarves strung around a telephone pole. They are a welcome, beckoning, free gift for the homeless to help keep them warm during the colder wet autumn and winter months.
If you or your organization could use some scarves this winter, call Christian Help Thrift Store at 541-247-4903.
