When we asked the homeless women in our GMC knitting circle how they learned to knit, nearly all had the same answer. They learned from their mothers at a very young age. Our moms can teach us a lot of things and sometimes those lessons are so engrained in us that we never forget them – like the repetitive motion of knitting. For our guests, knitting is calming and serves as an escape from the difficulties of homelessness.
Consider giving a meaningful gift this Mother’s Day by purchasing a GMC handmade knitted item. We have a large selection of blankets, socks, hats, bags and more. All were knitted by the homeless women who participate in our knitting circle and your purchase will go directly to the artist. Stop by our office to look at our selection. Please call 202-338-8301 ext. 3 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to have you!
Let’s celebrate our moms this year by supporting the work of some of the most vulnerable women in our community. You can help GMC find lasting solutions to homelessness, one person (and knitted item) at a time.
